For this installment of What X Buys, UrbanTurf rounds up a few options for prospective homebuyers in the DC area with a budget of $525,000 to $550,000.
A Converted Loft in Penn Quarter
Sixteen years ago, an office-to-residential conversion in Penn Quarter birthed Mather Studios where this listing is located. The two-bedroom unit enjoys the industrial finishes and loft-like aesthetic restored from the retrofit, including exposed concrete ceilings, polished concrete floors, and exposed ductwork. A brick wall lines the entry hall and houses the windows along the living room and into the first bedroom, which sits behind a frosted barn door and has a deep walk-in closet. The one-wall kitchen is in its own room, leaving a wall open to customize additional storage.
