Listing We Love: A Corner Condo in a Historic Capitol Hill Schoolhouse

The restoration spotlights the building’s original architecture.

Last April, developers Ditto Residential and CAS Riegler announced a partnership to convert a century-old public school in Northeast, the former James B. Edmonds School, into 20 condos that the team promised would fuse old and new. A year later, the building is finally delivering. Last week, several of the units popped up on the market, including our favorite: a top-floor, two-story corner condo with two bedrooms and two and a half baths, which faces southeast for maximum sunlight through its oversize, high-set windows. Other highlights of the place? The building’s gorgeous architectural detailing, of course, plus tons of exposed brick along exterior walls, wide-plank hardwood flooring, and high-end Waterworks fixtures. Sixteen-foot ceilings and oversize doors add to the expansive scale. It’s listed at $899,900. Read on for a look, then visit the development’s website for more details about the building and listing brokerage McWilliams Ballard for information about this unit and the others currently available.
