Luxury penthouse emerges from remodeled 1890 D.C. rowhouse

Shaw is among the District’s hottest neighborhoods for dining and shopping, so it’s no wonder that builders have targeted it for upscale developments.Lock7 Development recently restored and remodeled a circa 1890 Federal-style rowhouse into two contemporary condominiums, each with three or four outdoor spaces along with a parking space and luxurious interior finishes. Known as the Burlingham, the condo is at 919 R St. NW, four blocks from the Shaw-Howard U Metro station.

One unit has been sold, but the penthouse unit, at 1,674 square feet, is priced at $1,299,990. This two-level unit has an open floor plan on the first level with a living area with a bay window alcove, an open kitchen and an open dining room with a balcony. At the back of this level is a bedroom with a wall of closets, a full bathroom and a private balcony. On the second level are a roof deck, a den or office, another full bathroom and a second bedroom with a private balcony and a wall of closets.

The unit has white oak hardwood flooring, high ceilings, tall windows, recessed lighting and energy-efficient appliances. Both bathrooms have dark gray tile flooring in a chevron pattern with white cabinets and Carrara marble countertops. The kitchen has a professional-quality stainless-steel gas range, an under-cabinet microwave drawer, pendant lighting and a herringbone-patterned backsplash. Custom millwork on the dining room walls adds a classic touch to soften the contemporary style of the kitchen.
