Edmonds School Offers Sophisticated Living on Capitol Hill
The unique appeal of converted school buildings into townhomes and boutique condos has captured the imagination of Capitol Hill. The former Edmonds School on Capitol Hill has been transformed into luxurious residences. The trend of repurposed historic buildings has soared in popularity for urban dwellers. The award-winning Edmonds School building, newly renovated last year, embraces authentic lofts, high ceilings and tall windows. The blend of old and new is a staple in this highly sought-after location; Capitol Hill is a big draw for young professionals and mature couples who are downsizing, due to its central location and walking distance to Metro stations, restaurants, shopping and the U.S. Capitol.
The Edmonds School, located at 901 D Street, NE, was closed in the 1990s then converted into condos and townhomes last year. The building retains an old-time charm on the outside with a pitched roof and floor to ceiling windows. The corner second floor units include lofted ceilings and some units have dormers. The elegant architecture for the 1-2 bedrooms +Den/2.5 bathroom condos, ranging in size from 500-1,800 square feet, include spacious living, soaring ceilings, recessed lighting, exposed brick, elegant wood entry doors, historic replacement windows, Bosch appliances, Silestone countertops, European-style cabinetry, and Waterworks faucet and shower fixtures. The building amenities include elevator service, onsite parking and an outdoor community deck.
Townhomes are 3,700-4,100 square feet with 3 bedrooms, or 3 bedrooms+Den. The four townhomes at Edmonds School deliver classical and elegant design with spacious multi-level brownstones in keeping with the historical charm of the original school building. Much like the condos, the townhomes feature new amenities like exposed brick, dark espresso-stain hardwood floors throughout the main floors, and designer finishes. The townhomes feature premium windows, 10’ ceilings, recessed lighting, Viking gas range, Liebherr stainless steel refrigerator, Bosch appliances, custom cabinetry, and an adjacent breakfast room with morning light. The spacious open floor plan includes a 400 square foot private roof terrace with spectacular views of the U.S. Capitol dome.
Unit #102 is currently listed for sale at Edmonds School by TTR Sotheby’s International Realty. This spacious first floor condo features 2 BR / 2 BA with 1,307 square feet of living space. Unique architectural features include exposed brick, soaring 10-ft ceilings and over-sized windows that drench the unit in sunlight.
