These Shaw Condos Are the Coolest on the Market

Among DC's abundance of builder-basic flips, these super-stylish units from the owners of GoodWood are a breath of fresh air.

When we first heard that Anna and Dan Kahoe, owners of U Street home furnishings destination GoodWood, were partnering with S2 Development and architect Shawn Buehler on a boutique condo project, we knew the final product would be something to behold. Situated on a previously empty lot in front of the restored Blagden Alley carriage house where the Kahoes live, the new, three-unit building—called Huntress Coal Oil—beautifully complements the century-old Shaw rowhouses surrounding it. And as for the interiors, the results are even better than we expected.

The Mandy & David Team put all three condos on the market today: the 900-square-foot, one bedroom/one bath basement unit is listed for $599,555; an 1,100-square-foot two bedroom/two bath is priced at $899,555; and the 1,300-square foot, two bed/two-and-a-half bath penthouse with its own roofdeck is listed at $999,555.

Each condo is staged with GoodWood’s unique blend of funky furniture and accessories, some of which is vintage, and all of which can be negotiated into the sale.

A glass wall divides the bedroom from the main living areas of the basement unit, allowing natural light to flow throughout the subterranean space.
