The Lenox School was named for Walter Lenox who was the Mayor of the District of Columbia from 1850-1852. This elegant 19th-century public school building is the legacy of well-known architect and city planner Adolph Cluss (1825-1905). During the 1870s, he became the most influential architect in Washington, known for a significant number of public commissions. Although Cluss himself is not credited with the design of this particular school, most of which were designed and constructed in the decades following the Civil War, it bears all of the hallmarks of his work in the city, especially its fine brick work, its design which allowed for effective cooling before the advent of mechanical systems, and its composition as a historical revival style. This was a time when the city of Washington embarked on a vigorous campaign to transform public schools from what were once considered charitable institutions into an educational system worthy of one of the greatest cities in the world. This second level, two-floor apartment at the Lenox School Lofts offers superb light and a spectacular floor plan in this professionally-managed, pet-friendly 14-unit building. The unit features 14-foot ceilings, exposed interior brick walls, a handsomely outfitted kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a gas fireplace, and large windows which convey the atmosphere of the building's original use. In addition to the two bedrooms, there is a den/office on the main level. Secure parking is included in the purchase price. The Lenox School Lofts is within walking distance to a number of popular shops and restaurants on Capitol Hill as well as the Eastern Market Metro Station.
