Historic charm meets modern luxury in this splendid sun-splashed penthouse condominium. Impeccably restored and renovated, the residence occupies the top two floors of a four-story row house built in 1919, featuring two bedrooms and 2.5 baths. From extraordinary architectural details to a stunning private roof deck, this is urban living at its finest.
The century-old home was renovated in 2017 with an eye toward preserving authentic artisanship while opening up walls for a brighter and more spacious feel. The result is over 1,400 square feet of timeless elegance with soaring ceilings, wide-plank oak floors throughout, and exquisite millwork reflective of the Golden Age of design. The contemporary gourmet kitchen opens to the living and dining areas, with white-on-white finishes, Carrara marble and Viking professional-grade stainless steel appliances.
A generous stairway leads to the second level with two bedrooms, including a master suite with frameless shower and marble vanity with twin sinks. A powder room, as well as a hallway bath with deep soaking tub, have also been beautifully remodeled. The top level features large closets, deep-set windows, and a front-loading washer & dryer stack. Also at the top level is a large, private terrace with amazing city views and exquisite parquet redwood flooring. Off-street parking is included in the back, with direct access to the penthouse.
The row house at 1307 Riggs Street is one of a small number of residences along a quiet, one-block stretch between 13th and 14th Street. Here you’ll find brick sidewalks, tall leafy gingko trees and lovely architectural gems with front bays, flower beds and wrought iron railings.
This is a hidden gem in the northern part of Logan Circle, tucked away from the bustling 14th St. corridor. Yet residents are only steps from many of the District’s most popular bars and restaurants.
Historic Riggs Street features traditional row houses on both sides, offering an unusually wide breadth of design emblematic of the early 20th century era. From Mansard roofs on one side to sculpted cornices and spires on the other, this is truly an unaltered Washington time capsule.
While Riggs Street may seem to exist in its own secret space, lively Logan Circle is all around. From the namesake traffic circle to the dazzling array of boutique retailers, trendy restaurants, art galleries and performance venues, this is one of DC’s most coveted places to live.
A Whole Foods Market in the heart of the neighborhood provides a convenient place to gather groceries, while the 14th and U Farmers Market offers a fun Saturday outing for baked goods, fresh produce and other foodie delights. The legendary Studio Theatre has been at the forefront of creative excellence for eons, while the Black Cat offers DJs, happy hours, movie nights and live music.
Le Diplomate, Ted’s Bulletin, Estadio, Radiator and Ghibellina are just a tiny sampling of popular eateries along Washington’s most vibrant corridor. Easy access to transit is just a few blocks away, with the Green and Yellow lines of the U Street Metro and Shaw-Howard Metro close by.
