A private patio entrance at Cluss Alley.
Local luxury developer OPaL has just announced sales for two charming, unconventional Capitol Hill residences dubbed Cluss Alley. Built out of an early-20th century car barn in quaint Adolf Cluss Court, OPaL refurbished the structure’s most charming, historic features while completely redeveloping the interiors to create two modern, three-bedroom, fee simple homes priced at $1.825 million.

The Cluss Alley Car Barn was built in the 1920s and was used for car storage through much of the 1900s. Its transformation into Cluss Alley entailed the restoration of the original facade and an addition built of bricks pulled from the barn’s interior. The resulting exterior gives the impression of an open, modern-industrial jewel box housing two unique, 2,700 square foot homes.

Both residences include a spacious, open ground floor and three huge second-floor bedrooms, each with full en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets. Interiors were designed by P Four of Alexandria, and unique Cluss Alley features include oversized windows in place of the building’s original garage doors; mudrooms just inside the entranceways; wood-burning fireplaces; private garage parking; and sunrooms with sliding glass walls that open to private, 14-by-20-foot patios landscape designed by Loch Collective of Annapolis.

Though Cluss Alley is conspicuously private, it boasts a very central location and is within close walking distance of Barracks Row, Eastern Market and two Metro stations.

This is OPaL’s fourth alley project and fifth historic renovation. The developer’s other high-end developments include Naylor Court Stables, a Shaw project similarly centered around an alley, and Canal Mews, a luxury home development in Palisades.
