The long neglected mansion located at the corner of 18th and Monroe Streets in Mount Pleasant is coming back to life as a boutique condo development called The Shafer. The project draws its name from Charles Shafer, the President of American Fire Insurance Company who originally built the mansion in 1909.
The Shafer, which is expected to deliver in 2012, features 12 one and two bedroom condos in this stately structure and adjacent carriage house. The Developer, Community Three which recently delivered the Residences at St. Monica's project on Capitol Hill, plans to utilize the same unique unit floor plan designs which highlight the historic architectural features of the building. Custom touches include restored original woodwork, wood-burning fireplaces, 11-foot ceilings, private terraces and individual entries.
