This Week's Find: The Top Floor of a Capitol Hill Schoolhouse: Figure 1

This Week’s Find is a loft on the top floor of a former Capitol Hill school building. The Lovejoy Lofts at 440 12th Street NE (map) were created from the old Lovejoy school building about a decade ago.

Most of the 1,440 square-foot unit is open, with an exposed-brick wall framing the living room. A mezzanine level over the kitchen, accessed by a spiral staircase, leaves space for a comfy chair or a small office. The master bedroom sits in a loft above the mezzanine.

The space also has room for an office or other space under the master. There’s a closet-like bonus room that could fit a bed or a futon for guests, though it probably won’t work for a full-time bedroom. The unit, which comes with a parking space, is a short walk to both Lincoln Park and Eastern Market as well as H Street.
