Lincoln Park Rowhouse with Reversed Master Suite

Upon entry, this traditional rowhouse a few blocks from Lincoln Park looks like the average restored early-20th century home, with a transom at the front door and original hardwood floors and wood-framed doorways. The kitchen sports a massive waterfall countertop and a pitched ceiling where it exits back into the main hallway; the adjacent dining area features French doors that open onto an enclosed rear deck. However, the master suite has a unique reverse arrangement, leading with the skylit bathroom, which includes a standalone tub and separate shower stall in addition to a seating area. Just past the bathroom is the sunroom-style sleeping area.

Uniform on the Outside, Modernized on the Inside

This new three-bedroom condo on the eastern edge of Logan Circle looks like all of its French Street neighbors from the exterior; however, the interior is much more contemporary and minimalist.

At the top of the stairs is another modern addition by way of a bonus room that leads to a wooden roof deck.
