About a Month For an Old School Gym Converted to a Condo

This 1,300 square-foot one-bedroom loft on Capitol Hill, formerly the gym at an old elementary school, was on the market for about a month before it found a buyer. Exposed ceiling piping, red brick walls and wooden beams that have been painted white allude to the space's former life. Overlooking the open floor plan, the bedroom space, walk-in closet and full bathroom can be found in the loft space, and a private patio connects to the living room.

Two Days For a Two-Story 14th Street Penthouse 

This 14th Street condo -- with two spacious private patios and industrial finishes - spent only a couple days on the market before finding a buyer. At the center of the floor plan, there's a huge area for an entertainment center, overlooked by the kitchen breakfast bar which stands out with wood paneling and light-colored cabinetry. Accessible from the top story, the roof deck almost rivals the square footage of the interior space and offers views of the Capitol Dome.
