This week's Best New Listings includes a lofty schoolhouse condo, a Great Falls home on five acres of grassy land and a top-floor Dupont Circle co-op.


Two Bedrooms in a Converted Schoolhouse 

Converted from an old schoolhouse, the condos at Loveyjoy Lofts on Capitol Hill all show aspects of the building's former life. This two-bedroom features large windows, tall ceilings and lots of white brick. Reminiscent of a classroom setting, the chalkboard in the kitchen can be used for grocery lists or chores and complements the stainless steel appliances, white cabinetry, dark countertops and full-sized island. The den could make for the perfect office because of the built-in desk and glass French doors, and the upstairs loft could be used for a workout studio or guest space.
