Listing We Love: Light-filled 2-Bedroom in a Converted Schoolhouse

Though there are plenty sprinkled around DC’s older neighborhoods, condos in converted schoolhouses are still a commodity you’ll want to to jump on when one goes up for sale. With massive windows and high ceilings, these hundred-year-old buildings offer just enough variety for buyers wanting to avoid cookie-cutter new builds and unoriginal renos.

This 2-bedroom offering in the Berret School Lofts at 14th and Q Sts. is especially appealing, with its working fireplace and easy access (no stairs!). Plus, it’s covetable location across the street from Le Diplomate means rolling out of bed and diving right into flaky croissants could be in your future.

Here are the details:

List Price: $725,000
Square Footage: 900
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 2
Amenities: prime location, gas fireplace, washer & dryer, 14 ft. ceilings
