Best New Listings: A Schoolhouse Condo and A Georgetown Mansion

by Shilpi Paul

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a two-bedroom condo in a former schoolhouse, an 1,100 square-foot listing in a Massachusetts Avenue high-rise and a four-bedroom Georgetown row house with built-ins everywhere.

Best New Listings: A Schoolhouse Condo and A Georgetown Mansion: Figure 1

Lofted in a Former Capitol Hill Schoolhouse

This condo in The Logan School on the northern edge of Capitol Hill doesn’t have quite as much space as conventional two-bedrooms in the city, but the lofted area helps create some breathing room. The building, built in 1890, was converted to residences in the mid-1980s and now consists of 24 total units. UrbanTurf’s favorite features are the double high living room that has a fireplace and the master bedroom with its bed nook.

  • Full listing: 301 G Street NE, #11 (map)
  • Price: $384,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 736
  • Listing Agent: Mark Meyerdirk, Urban Brokers

1,100 Square-Foot Unit Built During the Boom

The Sonata, a condo building at 301 Massachusetts Avenue NW, is one of several projects that delivered in the Mount Vernon Square area several years ago (others include CityVista, Madrigal Lofts and Yale Steam Laundry). This 1,100 square-foot listing at the development has the exposed ductwork and huge windows that these projects are known for, as well as a walk-in closet, in-unit washer/dryer, and a large kitchen and master bath, which add value. The Sonata also comes with amenities like a gym and rooftop patio, which in addition to the listing’s size, explain the rather high condo fees.

  • Full listing: 301 Massachusetts Ave NW, #801 (map)
  • Price: $564,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,100
  • Listing Agent: Matt Ford, Century 21 New Millennium

Built-ins and Proximity at Four-Bedroom Georgetown Listing

This Georgetown row house, near Dumbarton Oaks Park on the northern edge of the neighborhood, lives on three levels with a fourth bedroom and second kitchen on the lowest level. The built-ins and similar storage everywhere are hard not to notice: a living room entertainment center, dining room cabinetry, and an extensive walk-in closet in the master suite. Our favorite room may be the dining space pictured above, but it should be noted that the listing has a deep backyard with a deck and slate patio, as well as a two-car garage.

  • Full listing: 1652 33rd Street NW (map)
  • Price: $1.525 Million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1914
  • Listing Agent: Charles Holzwarth, Washington Fine Properties

    301 G was converted in the 1980's or 1990's - not 2005. #11 is NOT a 2BR. It is a 1BR + short ceilinged loft. Still nice, but not a 2BR by any stretch.

    anon, Yes, we think it was the mid-80s and will make the change. Mark Wellborn
