A few months ago, UrbanTurf previewed the plans to bring a single-family home to a much-talked about triangular plot at the intersection of Florida Avenue and V Street NW in Adams Morgan. Those plans were granted approval from the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) this week.
The lot at 1706 Florida Avenue NW (map) is owned by Sean Ruppert of OPaL, who worked on the design for the new home with architect GPS Designs. As a result of the shape of the plot, the three-story house will have the second bedroom and bathroom on the main level, along with the entry foyer and a closet. The second story will contain the living area and kitchen along with a powder room, and the uppermost level is occupied by the owner's suite. There is also a planned basement level with rec room and full bath.
While the design has been refined somewhat in collaboration with the Historic Preservation Office (HPO), HPO staff recommended the Board find the concept to be compatible with the character of the Strivers Section Historic District, leading to the plans passing yesterday via the consent calendar.
