Rife with custom-built conveniences and Victorian details, this apartment balances space and functionality in a way that’s rarely found in a one-bedroom…much less one with stellar views of Logan Circle. Its oversized living space with bay windows can be used to entertain, study, play—or be converted to a spare bedroom courtesy of an elegant built-in Murphy bed. Sliding doors allow control over the flow of the apartment: the living room, dining room, and kitchen can either be sectioned off, or slid apart for a feel that mimics an open floor plan. The closets and storage are all designer-built to maximize storage and space (any studio or one-bedroom occupant who isn’t an acolyte of Marie Kondo knows of the continuous battle with clutter). Even the washer/dryer closet was custom done. Finally the bedroom, a huge space lined with windows on two walls, sports a custom reclaimed-wood shelving unit that divides the space into a sleep area with a separate nook—a division that can be furthered by drawing down an elegant curtain. And besides all those functional details, there’s also the pretty stuff: three Victorian-style mantles, two wood-burning fireplaces, mirrored walls, high ceilings, clawfoot bathtubs. These are the type of dream digs that young couples and busy professionals swoon over. And a trip to the park is only a short meander out the front door.
