1001 Irving Street NE

One of the more interesting shaped homes to hit the market in DC in recent memory has found a buyer.

The Roundhouse, as it has been called, hit the market roughly a month ago for $899,000. The price was reduced by $100,000 about a week ago, and the home went under contract on Wednesday.

Built in 1901 by John C. Louthan, 1001 Irving Street NE (map) in Brookland is one of the few remaining octagonal houses in DC. (More round than octagonal, it is known as “the roundhouse” to its neighbors.)

In its 110-year history, the home has had just four owners. Ditto Residential, along with architect Chong Cao, spent just over a year transforming the home into a 2,400-square foot, four-bedroom house while maintaining the property’s unique design.

We wrote about the home just before it hit the market, and are happy to see that it has now found an owner. More photos below.
