It’s been used as a stable, a coal yard and even a garage, but the opportunity now exists for a few lucky condo owners to live in the iconic Chapman Stables. The unique property was first built in the early 1900s.
In more recent years it was used as a warehouse. At some point in its history, the long-standing property was named a landmark, and was placed on the US National Register of Historic Places.
It has since been remade into a condo building with a blend of historic elements and modern appeal. These days the Chapman Stables property is home to more than 100 condos, in a variety of layouts.
Delivered just within the past few years, buyers can choose from a studio, one-, two- or even three-bedroom floor plan. Typical condos at Chapman Stables range from around 750 square feet to more than 1,000 square feet.
Some of the condos are duplex units in two-story designs, while others come with either private terraces or private balconies. Buyers can expect to find premium appliances in the homes, as well as some energy-efficient design elements.
As well, some of the homes come with custom kitchen islands. The property also comes with a concierge desk, garage parking, a clubroom lounge, library and roof terrace with space for grilling.
The property additionally includes some extra storage units, a private central courtyard and a communal kitchen. You’ll find Chapman Stables in DC’s Truxton Circle neighborhood.
