1700 17th Street NW, #305
This year, UrbanTurf has highlighted a number of projects that involve office buildings being converted into residences. This Week’s Find is a less-prevalent version of the same: an individual dental office that was converted into a condominium unit.
The Admiral Dupont, a building at the corner of 17th and R Street NW built in 1980, currently has a policy in place that each of its units above street-level be converted to residences upon sale. In February, Melissa Wilson purchased a unit that has operated as a dentist office and set about converting it into a two-bedroom condo. “This unit was originally a one bedroom, but was converted to a dental studio with a sitting room, bathroom, kitchenette and three small patient rooms,” Wilson told UrbanTurf.
Wilson gutted the unit creating enough room for a living area, two bedrooms and walk-in closets, one of which is behind a barn door and is large enough to accommodate a desk and chair. A wood-burning fireplace, discovered during the renovation, now has been outfitted with a custom asymmetrical Carrera slab. The plumbing fixtures include spa showers and the faucets have an “insta-hot” feature that eliminates having to wait for water to heat up.
“After the conversion was complete, the tax assessment office sent out an inspector who confirmed the new residential use,” Wilson said. “It was approved and the new status should be publicly available by September online. The tax rate will go from nearly $7,000/year to roughly $1,800.”
