High-End Rentals Coming to Former Home of General John Logan

by Shilpi Paul

Logan House at #4 Logan Circle

UrbanTurf has learned that the former residence of General John Logan (of Logan Circle fame) is being converted into rentals that could hit the market in the next 30 days. The bright pink house on the western edge of Logan Circle will have four, two-story, two-bedroom units ranging in size from 1,500 to 1,700 square feet and each will have outdoor space and parking.

Built in 1877, General Logan lived in the home in the late 19th century while he served in the House of Representatives and Senate. (During a presidential campaign in 1885, he welcomed more than 1,000 visitors into the home.) The property was later home to American University founder Bishop John Fletcher Hurst.

Logan House fell into disrepair during the 1960’s and 70’s, and in 1975 an entire wall crumbled to the ground. After a second life as an 8-unit rental building, Logan House has been restored and renovated by Takoma Park-based Mangan Group Architects.

The project is currently waiting on occupancy permits from the city (that are expected to be approved in the next 30 days). In the meantime, here is a look at the floorplans.

    So who dropped the ball on this one? I originally thought this was converted for SALE not rental. Given location and unit sizes, the demand is clearly available. Such as shame that this is rental….

    They are starting out as rentals, but could be for sale down the road.

    from PoP:

    “According to listing agent Michele Topel from TTR Sotheby’s International Realty:

    ‘There will be four two bedroom condominiums, between about 1500-1700 sq ft with high end finishes, outdoor space and parking. They will initially be offered as rentals at prices around $5000-$5800 per month and we are just waiting for occupancy permits to begin tours of the property, which we hope to have in 30 days.’

    I asked Michele when she thought the properties might be sold and she replied 3-5 years.”
