This Week’s Find is a 2,500-square-foot loft in Logan Circle that, when it was built in 1991, was part of one of the first loft-style condo projects built in DC.

The two-bed, 2.5-bath loft at 1309 P Street NW (map) recently hit the private market with an asking price of $1.5 million. Its owner Stephen Mowbray has lived there for more than two decades with his spouse, Luis Colmenares.

Mowbray was also on the building’s development team when it was constructed. The six-unit building, designed by Milton Shinberg of ABS Architects, has upper-level lofts with 16-foot ceilings and living spaces divided across two floors, but Mowbray opted to combine the two lower-level units to create one large, open unit.

“I was looking for wide open space, all on one level,” Mowbray told UrbanTurf. “It affords us the ability for large scale entertaining.”

The couple turned the second kitchen into a wet bar and created comfortable “conversation areas” throughout the house with the help of interior designer Jerry Copeland. Out back is a wooden deck that leads to a yard and parking for two cars; there’s also a south-facing front patio.
