Listing We Love: A Stable-Inspired Townhouse in Shaw’s Historic Naylor Court

This new home channels the traditional architecture of its setting.

The charming, stable-filled alleyways in Shaw between Ninth and Tenth streets—a designated Historic District—rank high among our favorite Washington neighborhood gems. And though this particular Naylor Court home is technically a newly constructed building, boutique developers Opal took care to stay true to the area’s signature equestrian style. A trio of stable-inspired homes went on the market in the fall and soon sold, but one reemerged on the market recently, and it’s a great-looking place. Four levels and 2,600 square feet house three bedrooms, four and a half baths, a fourth-floor den, a roof terrace, two-car parking, and high-end detailing such as custom tile and vanities, a wired sound system, and top-level kitchen appliances. Like the others in this set, this rowhouse was designed to give careful consideration to the street’s traditional architectural style, featuring oversize black-framed windows and arched, horse-height windows and sliding barn and hayloft doors. Inside, the design offers lacquered cabinetry, a wine chiller, coffered ceilings, ebony-stained stairs, and wide-plank, hand-scraped hardwood flooring. It’s listed at $1.65 million. Check it out below, then head to Stages Realtors for more details.
