The condominium complex at 1745 N St NW is beautiful proof that opposites attract and can live together in perfect harmony.

The two-wing development offers a choice of living and design styles. Historic Row, which faces N Street and reflects its Victorian and turn-of-the-20th-century design, houses 29 residences with oversized windows, tall ceilings, spacious floor plans and views of the streetscape and the dome of St. Matthew’s cathedral.

Nestled behind Historic Row and connected by a brick courtyard is the all-new Modern Flats, a sleek six-story tower with 39 open-concept units, many with private terraces.

Historic one-bedrooms range from 813-1035 square feet and are offered at high $600s to upper $900s; two bedrooms, 1210-1750 square feet and $1.049M to $1.699M; penthouses (2190-2309  square feet) are priced at $2.999M.

The smaller Modern flats include one bedrooms (641-652 square feet) ranging from mid- to upper-$500s. One bedroom/den units (688-774 square feet) range from mid- to upper-$600s. Two bedrooms (886 square feet) start at the upper $700’s.

Historic or modern, all the homes are luxuriously styled with wide-plank white oak flooring throughout; gourmet kitchens with Italian cabinetry, marble-veined quartz countertops and full-height backsplash; Bosch, Thermador or Summit appliances; large closets (some already fitted with custom storage systems) and elegant baths featuring Italian high-gloss white vanities, quartz counters, electric lighted mirrors and Kohler fixtures.

At 1418 square feet, Unit 211 is one of the larger residences in the Historic Row. It opens into a wide foyer with a powder room and laundry closet to the left. Straight ahead is a great room, comprising a living/dining area, anchored by oversized windows facing south, and the kitchen, which features all Bosch appliances, extensive cabinetry (dark wood lower and high-gloss white upper) and an island/breakfast bar that seats four.

There are two bedrooms, both with en-suite baths. The master bath has a double-sink vanity, frameless glass door shower with seat and porcelain tile floor and wall tile. The master bedroom boasts a spacious closet with Econize built-in storage.

This unit is on the market for $1,699,900 with a monthly condo fee of $956.

The Historic Row penthouse, unit 509, offers almost 2300 square feet of living space and includes two bedrooms, a den (with a private entrance) and three-and-a-half baths. The expansive living/dining room boasts exceptional light, a gas-burning fireplace as well as an exposed brick wall (from one of the original row homes that formed this wing of the complex).

Off the living room, to the right, is a comfortably sized bedroom with a deep walk-in closet (ready for customizing), en-suite bath with double vanity and glass-door shower. The den also enjoys its own en-suite bath and sizable closet.

Off the living room to the left, a wide hallway leads to another master bed/bath with similar amenities and the kitchen, which features Bosch and Thermador appliances.

The penthouse is on the market for $2.999 million with a monthly condo fee of $1,543.

Unit 404, a one-bedroom, one-bath Modern Flat, is only 641 square feet but every amenity-rich inch is thoughtfully laid out—from the substantial walk-in closet to the walls of windows in the living/dining area and the patio off the kitchen. It is on the market for $574,900 ($432 month condo fee).

Modern Flat 401 offers 886 square feet of living space with two bedrooms, two en-suite baths and a Juliet balcony off the living/dining room.
