1624 U Street NW

If you’ve walked down U Street NW between 16th and 17th Street, chances are that you have strolled on by the old firehouse where This Week’s Find is located, without even realizing that it is there.

Old Firehouse No. 9 last served as a fire department back in the late 19th century. In the 1980s, it was converted into a 13-unit condo project on three levels with commercial space on the ground floor.

The listing itself is a walk-up penthouse with an interesting layout. The floorplan has the kitchen and dining space on one level, and then a step-up living room with a wood burning fireplace. The top level is a loft that has a bed area, full bath and skylight. The one-bedroom does not have parking, but it does come with its own deck.

    I've always wondered about this building. Nice to see something unlike the cookie-cutter places popping up everywhere.

    Nice renovation. I remember considering this when it was for sale a few years ago. Looks MUCH nicer now.
