Listing We Love: Another Converted Schoolhouse Loft in Capitol Hill
This two-bedroom condo is on the market for just under $500,000. By Michelle Thomas
Comments () | Published June 9, 2014

Capitol Hill is sprinkled with handful of restored, repurposed schoolhouses—including the¬†recently converted Edmonds School—and 12th Street’s Lovejoy Lofts boasts many of the features that make these redos so appealing. The turn-of-the-century schoolhouse was converted into 54 condos in 2003, and the renovation combines such modern-industrial design mainstays as concrete floors and exposed ductwork with some of the building’s historic architecture, such as arched doorways, high ceilings, white-washed brick walls, and oversize windows. This two-bedroom condo features all of those goodies—but the best classroom relic in this particular loft? The original blackboard, now a perfectly contemporary decor element of the loft’s open living area. The 980-square-foot¬†condo is listed at $499,900. Check it out below, then head to Re/Max Allegiance for details and the complete tour.
