Best New Listings: Industrial Loft, Woodwork, and a Beaux Arts Landmark

by Shilpi Paul

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at an industrial loft in Logan Circle, a Capitol Hill Victorian with lots of woodwork, and a Lanier Heights co-op in a Beaux Arts building.

A True Industrial Loft in Logan Circle

While many condos in DC attempt an industrial style, or a loft-like feel, this unit is a true loft with an industrial history. In 2006, an auto-related industrial building was converted into condo units. The layout of this two-bedroom is airy and spacious, and the design is raw, with exposed piping and floor-to-ceiling windows. Though it is divided into rooms, the walls don’t quite reach the ceiling, and a lofted room, accessible by stairs, offers a getaway for an office or guestroom. Our favorite area, however, is outdoors: a private patio as big as a studio apartment sits outside the living room.

  • Full listing: 1400 Church Street NW #201 (map)
  • Price: $849,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,290
  • HOA Fees: 598
  • Listing Agent: Trent Heminger, Beasley Real Estate

Capitol Hill Victorian With Woodwork Galore

This 2,940-square-foot Victorian has original woodwork everywhere you look: pocket doors, interior shutters, blinds, the fireplace and the trim around the doors and windows are all made from the same heavy oak. As a semi-detached, the home has more windows than a typical Capitol Hill rowhouse. It is also quite spacious; the oversized master bedroom has room for a full sitting room, as well as a walk-in closet. The finished basement is carpeted, with a full bathroom.

  • Full listing: 1101 E Street NE (map)
  • Price: $799,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1911
  • Listing Agent: Mary Tucker, McEnearney Associates

Top Floor Unit at the Ontario in Lanier Heights

The Ontario is a notable Beaux Arts building with a majestic facade. The becolumned, 120-unit building went up in 1906 and is set back from the street and surrounded by trees and a stone wall. This co-op is located on the top floor, and has correspondingly charming interior details. Transoms above the doorways, a tiled fireplace and a clean white bathroom give the home some extra style. The entryway closet is spacious, and the kitchen has been updated.

  • Full listing: 2853 Ontario Road NW #618 (map)
  • Price: $398,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 700
  • HOA Fees: 554
  • Listing Agent: Catherine Czuba, McEnearney Associates

    the one in capitol hill seems like a great deal-would think it would go for more.
  1. John said at 4:41 pm on Monday November 4, 2013:
    Agreed, the Capitol Hill listing seems underpriced.
  1. Mary said at 8:44 pm on Monday November 4, 2013:
    I think the pricing on the Capitol Hill one is about what I usually see for places around that block that only have street parking. Lack of that or a/c moderates prices over there considerably.

    The Capitol Hill listing went unsold and was pulled from the market on 16 December 2013. Oak shutters not that charming after all?
