Since a conversion of the rundown, waterlogged and rodent-infested school building at 1375 Maryland Avenue NE (map) was completed in 2005, 90% of the units have been rented out while owners Jeff Printz and Chris Swanson resided in the 9,500 square-foot owner's unit on the top two floors. Now, buyers will be able to purchase their pick of the ten units created in the conversion.
The bones of the Pierce School were largely kept intact as part of the conversion, creating 8 units with ceiling heights from 13 feet to as high as 35 feet-tall in the penthouse unit. Condos on the second floor also retained their chalkboards, and two of the ground floor condos have private outdoor space. An adjacent rowhouse was also retrofit into flats when the lofts were originally delivered.
Priced at $3,399,000, the 9,500 square-foot penthouse has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a commercial-grade kitchen with an 18-foot marble island, a 14-seat movie theater, a salt-water aquarium and a private 800 square-foot roof deck. UrbanTurf covered the owner's unit back in 2013.
Aside from the penthouse, the units range in size from 750 to 1,775 square feet and are priced from $359,000 to $699,000. The Pierce School also share access to an outdoor 40,000-gallon heated black bottom pool, hot tub, kitchen and gym.
