In a city with every type of condo conversion, Bishop's Gate condominiums are unique. This four-building Federal-style complex was built in 1929 as the St. Augustine Parochial School. Located at 1715 15th Street NW at the midpoint between Dupont and Logan Circle, the school included a rectory and convent and served the community for many years, eventually moving to a new locale a few blocks away. The original buildings were renovated and repurposed as Bishop's Gate, a gated townhouse community in 1979.
There are 69 units at Bishop's Gate condominiums in Washington DC, mostly one and two-bedrooms with generous square-footage. Recent sales for the townhouses have been in the mid-$400's to high-$500's, although one centerpiece residence listed for over a million dollars. This was the Chapel, with a 45-foot ceiling, stained-glass windows, two spiral staircases and loft space. The rest of the units have much to offer as well with hardwood floors, balconies and patios, large windows, wood-burning fireplaces and gourmet kitchens with granite counters and stainless steel appliances.
The Bishop's Gate exterior design features archways, courtyards, brick pathways and the old school playground. The buildings are fronted on 15th Street with Bishop's Gate Court running along one side. All units come with washers and dryers and there is also garage parking available, as well as additional storage. The complex is between R & S streets, in DC's popular 20009 zip code.
Location adds to the charm of the Bishop's Gate townhouses. The U Street and Dupont Circle Metro stations are within easy walking distance and the popular Whole Foods is just a few blocks down on P Street. There are restaurants, coffeehouses and fun shops galore, as well as the venerable Studio Theatre on 14th Street. Nearby schools include Thomas Elementary, Francis Middle School and Dunbar High.
