Listing We Love: A Giant Light-Filled Loft in a Converted Schoolhouse

We admit it. We can’t get enough of DC’s converted schoolhouses. In fact, we may or may not have “schoolhouse” loaded as a permanent search term in Redfin… But this one is really a fantastic find. It’s gigantic and (for this city, anyway) very, very reasonably priced.

Here are the details:

Address: 440 12th St. NE, #306
List Price: $765,000
Square Footage: 1,840
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 3
Amenities: views of the Capitol, Washington Monument, and National Cathedral; washer and dryer; hardwood floors; upgraded kitchen; abundant space

Exposed brick detailing is complemented by concrete floors.
The kitchen isn’t huge, but there’s plenty of room to expand.
Bedrooms are spacious and bright.
