Two UrbanTurf Favorites Back on the Market: Figure 1
2424 18th Street NW, #R2

Two luxury properties that UrbanTurf has covered closely over the past couple years returned to the market last week.

Unit R2 at 2424 18th Street NW (map) found a buyer back in April, but the status changed on the home (from pending back to active) last week. The larger of two massive units in a former car dealership in the heart of Adams Morgan, the three-floor industrial space has a number of aspects that one would expect to find in a real loft — 14-foot ceilings, a private deck on the second floor (plus a larger deck on the roof), and a living area big enough to host a party for a few hundred people. The home is listed for $1.35 million, about $150,000 less than what it was asking in April.

Also back on the market as of last week is one our most popular Unique Spaces: the restaurant-turned-home at the Tilden Gardens complex in Cleveland Park.

3000 Tilden Street NW, #1

3000 Tilden Street NW, #1 (map) was originally built as part of a six-building co-op complex, and the restaurant at Tilden Gardens was where residents would eat. It closed in 1971, and soon after, the Daughters of the American Revolution moved in and used the space as their offices and ballroom. When the Daughters moved out in 2005, the space sat empty for two years.

In 2007, Ed Carp closed on the 3,600 square-foot space, and spent several months transforming it into his home. He turned the back three rooms of the space, which had been used as offices and a women’s bathroom, into the master bedroom and two guest rooms, and renovated the kitchen and built all new bathrooms. He also redid the floors using a wood stain and created a large home office for himself just off the living area. A second round of renovations a couple years later included the addition of a private entrance with a large cast iron door, and the unit’s piece de resistance: a movie screening room. Off the market since July 2011, the three-bedroom home came back on last week for $1.249 million.
