Brookland Arts & Crafts Home Hits the Market After Exceptional Renovation
1335 Lawrence Street NE
Amidst the new builds currently hitting the market in DC’s Brookland neighborhood, a lovely 1920s Arts & Crafts home was just listed for sale. 1335 Lawrence Street NE (map) is a historic four-bedroom, three-bath detached home that has been renovated with a large rear addition and a slew of high-end updates.
“This level of renovation and craftsmanship is rare and inspiring,” says Shemaya Klar of The Abbott Klar Real Estate Group.
In 2005, the current owners built the two-story rear addition, going to great lengths to ensure that it would mimic the original structure of the home in quality and character. The addition includes an open-plan great room and kitchen, an upper-level master bedroom (with walk-in closet and wide-plank pine flooring), a master bathroom, and a laundry room. The renovation also included adding radiant floor heating, custom-milled woodwork and two Frank Lloyd Wright-style stained glass windows.

The electrical system, lead service line and water heater were also all replaced, and central air conditioning and ceiling fans were added. Exterior updates include new Hardiplank siding, a new roof (with 25-year shingles), and major landscaping enhancements in the backyard garden.

“We re-did the landscaping from scratch because the 7,500 square foot lot had so much unrealized potential,” the owners explained. “We wanted the yard to include both an 'edible garden' and a 'cutting garden', so we have three mature fig trees, a Newtown Pippin apple tree, a Methley plum tree, blueberries, raspberries and an herb garden, as well as numerous flowering shrubs and perennials.”

Despite the 3,540-square foot home's secluded feel, 1335 Lawrence Street is less than a ten-minute walk from the Brookland/CUA Metro station (Red Line, three stops to Union Station). It’s also just a few blocks from 12th Street and establishments like Yes! Organic Market, San Antonio Bar & Grill and Menomale Pizzeria. As the neighborhood gains popularity, residents are also excited to welcome two new children’s playgrounds and a new restaurant (the cleverly named Brookland’s Finest) from the owners of The Pug.
1335 Lawrence Street just went on the market on June 20th for $799,000. Don’t miss the public open house this Sunday June 23rd from 1-4pm. For more information, contact listing agent Shemaya Klar by email or phone at 202-255-3891.
