The Sanctuary Now Selling
Dating back to the late 1800s and gingerly restored to compliment historic features and elements, a former Capitol Hill church has now been reinvented into a total of 30 condominium homes currently up for sale. With Gothic Revival architecture intact, the 19th century building retains some of its most unique features, like grand stained glass windows, exposed brick walls and cast-iron columns.
The sophisticated residences effortlessly blend the old with the new, including up to 20-foot high ceilings and 15-foot windows, plus imported Italian stone countertops, wide plank wood flooring and solid wood doors. The one-bedroom, two-bedroom and two-bedroom plus a den units all range from around 550 square feet to more than 2,300 square feet in size. The upper level units include two-floors of living space, with pitched ceilings and an excess of indoor and outdoor space. Some units even provide private rooftop decks with sensational Capitol views.
As well, there are also four units located within two row houses, offering one-bedroom or three-bedrooms plus 2.5-baths, each with its own private entrance. The exclusive building also includes such amenities as basement storage, a new elevator and a restored, grand staircase leading to the private residences.
Located not far from Stanton Park, residents of The Sanctuary are also close to nearby grocery stores, a large number of dining and retail options, plus Barracks Row, H Street Corridor, Lincoln Park and Eastern Market. This quiet residential area is also a comfortable stroll from Metro stations and bus lines, as well as the Capitol building. It is right across the street from another unique property of condominiums and townhomes too, these constructed within the site of a former public school, further reinventing the neighborhood for generations to come.
Priced starting in the mid $300,000s, the three-story development also offers homes priced in excess of $1 million. As some units within The Sanctuary have already sold, move-ins are expected in the fall of 2016.
