The Gracie Condominiums - Washington DC
Located at 1470 Chapin Street NW in Columbia Heights is the Gracie, a four-unit condo conversion. This 1905 Victorian row house was purchased at a bankruptcy auction by the Lock 7 Development Group in 2010. The once-proud brownstone was in such a state of disrepair that everything needed to be demolished except for the front brick wall. Over the course of a year, the building which once consisted of three apartments, was transformed into a stunning four-residence condominium.
During the reconstruction of the Gracie, a fourth floor plus atrium was added, along with underpinning the basement in order to achieve higher ceilings. Walls and stairs went in, along with oversized windows that still retained a traditional look. The dramatic front bay was preserved although the original steeple was exchanged for a gabled roof. The project was delivered to market in June 2011, with three two-bedroom flats and a three-level three-bedroom penthouse. Sales prices on the four condos ranged from $414,000 to $715,000.
Of course, the fact that there's only four units here makes it somewhat unlikely that you'll see any active listings. Care to broaden the search a bit and look for Washington DC condos in general, or lofts, flats and modern spaces in the greater DC Metro area?
Now back to the Gracie condominiums which feature oak floors throughout, crown molding, recessed ceilings, bay front rooms, exposed brick and private terraces. The chef-designed kitchens have to be seen to be appreciated – these are true open kitchens that are an integral component of the overall design. The sinks are set into the carrera marble islands and the custom dark espresso cabinets perfectly offset the wood floors. The appliances are commercial-grade stainless steel. All units have washer/dryer stacks as well as numerous other amenities.
The Gracie condominiums are in the heart if Columbia Heights, in Washington DC's popular 20009 zip code. These sun-drenched units are literally feet from Meridian Hill Park, one of the nation's noted structured urban parks and listed as a historic place. The condos are also part of the celebrated U Street Corridor and an equal distance between the Columbia Heights and U Street Metro stations. Harris Teeter and Safeway are nearby and the wildly popular 14th Street restaurants and shops are less than a block away.
