The Rockingham Condominiums - Washington DC
Built in 1900, the Rockingham is one of Logan Circle's classic historic buildings, featuring Federal-style architecture with semi-turrets and bays. Located at 1317 Rhode Island Avenue NW in DC's 20005 zip code, the building has been renovated and converted to 27 condominium units. While these residences don't often come on the market, the most recent sales prices have been in the low-to-mid six figure range.
The Rockingham condominiums are roomy and bright, with hardwood floors, fireplaces, high ceilings, large windows and gourmet kitchens with granite counters and high-end appliances. Window bays and curved rooms are a function of the exterior design, showing a Victorian influence to augment the traditionally boxy Federal shape. The dens are raised two steps off the floor and there are interesting angled walls and cutaways throughout the units. Washer/dryers combos are included.
