A Cambridge Row living space.
In 1941, the Salvation Army built a small brick church on Capitol Hill, with art deco and gothic details. This past year, the building was both renovated and expanded, becoming Cambridge Row: a European-inspired, boutique condominium that is now selling at 12th and G Streets SE (map).
Many of the building’s original architectural details—large windows, a decorative parapet roofline and 12- to 15-foot ceilings—were preserved during the construction of 12 condominiums. An adjoining building containing 13 new-build condominiums was then built on the property’s former parking lot.
The original, renovated church (left) and the new addition (right) make up Cambridge Row.
Each studio, junior one-bedroom, one-, two- and three-bedroom home at Cambridge Row features unique and efficient layouts that maximize every inch of living space. Interiors include 9- to 14-foot ceilings, wide-plank hardwood flooring throughout, state-of-the-art soundproofing, high-gloss lacquer cabinetry and quartz countertops. Some homes are two stories and feature spiral staircases leading to private rooftop terraces; others feature french doors opening to Juliette balconies.
Inside Cambridge Row.
Residences that don’t include private terraces have access to a community roofdeck—and given that the building is two floors taller than most of the neighborhood’s townhomes, residents have amazing views of the neighborhood and the Capitol Building dome.
Cambridge Row is located 2 blocks from the Potomac Avenue Metro and 5 blocks from the Eastern Market Metro. Within walking distance are the restaurants and bars at Barracks Row, Eastern Market’s weekly flea market, Yes! Organic Market, Safeway, Harris Teeter, Lincoln Park and even Nationals Park.
