1727 21st Street NW
From stables to former commercial spaces, a couple of the properties featured this week on UrbanTurf have served a variety of purposes prior to becoming homes.
This Week’s Find is an architect’s residence in Dupont Circle that recently hit the market. Prior to it being turned into a home, 1727 21st Street NW served as a TV repair shop, as well as office space for a travel newsletter.
In the late 1990s, the property was in an abandoned state when architect Gregory Zahn purchased it with plans for a vast renovation.
Zahn gutted the building and reconfigured the floor plan vertically as well as horizontally. He transformed the basement space into a large room that runs nearly the length of the house, and took out a good portion of the second floor to create a combined living/dining room with ceilings that reach to the property’s roof line. Zahn preserved the original storefront bay window and put in a kitchen and half bath to complete the level.
The remaining section of the second floor consists of a bedroom, bathroom, and a reading area that runs the width of the house. A staircase leads to another bedroom/bath suite, a large sitting area at the front of the home, and a terrace that looks out over 21st Street.
An added bonus is a loft space that runs just inside the front of the house below the small square attic window and the three horizontal transom windows seen from the street.
Details about the home can be found below, and we hope to have more photos to add to the article soon.
