Logan Circle’s charms are, by now, well known—a visual and experiential feast of commercial energy, cultural stimulation, architectural beauty and restful green space that makes it one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods. A go-to and must-live-in destination.

Case in point: the red brick and stone Victorian at 1304 Rhode Island Ave, NW. Once a family home, it housed, until 2016, a law firm and was recently converted to a boutique condominium complex with six luxuriously finished units. (And, yes, pets are welcome.)

Unit 6, one of two penthouses in the building, is a two-bedroom, two-bath duplex that boasts a large roof deck with glorious views. It offers 1170 square feet of living space that balances sleek contemporary design with historical touches and is on the market for $999,000. The monthly condo fee is $502.

To the left as you enter the apartment is a full bath with frameless glass shower, marble-topped vanity and Waterworks fixtures; a deep pantry closet, and laundry with stacked Whirlpool washer and dryer. The hall opens into the living room/dining area and kitchen, an abundantly lit space featuring soaring ceilings with reclaimed, hand-hewn beams and tall vintage arch- framed windows with views of Logan Circle.

Wide-planked oak flooring stained in light grey runs throughout the unit.

The kitchen is lined with espresso-stained oak cabinets with contrasting Volokas grey-veined marble on counter tops, backsplash and waterfall island/breakfast bar (which seats four).

Chef’s-grade stainless appliances include Bosch gas cooktop and oven, microwave and dishwasher; Zephyr hood, and Liebherr refrigerator/freezer.

Off the living room is a guest bedroom with a deep walk-in closet.

An open stairway takes you to the second level, a loft space dedicated to the owner’s suite. Immediately off the landing is the owner’s bath with marble tile floors, frameless glass-door shower and single-sink vanity with marble counter (same as the kitchen and main level bath) and Waterworks fixtures.

The bedroom, which overlooks the living room, is spacious enough for a king-sized bed and has two large walk-in closets, one fitted with a custom California Closet storage system. A spiral staircase leads to a private roof garden with Trex decking and panoramic views.

Located in the heart of Logan Circle (literally), the home is within walking distance to the vibrant 14th Street corridor’s Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Le Diplomate, Barcelona, West Elm, The Studio Theatre and a host of other retail and restaurant attractions. The Yellow and Green line metro stations are nearby, providing easy access to Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan and downtown monuments.

Unit 6, the two-bedroom, two-bath condo at 1304 Rhode Island Ave NW, is listed for $999,000 with CondoNest, a division of McWilliams Ballard. For details, contact Timur Loynab at 571-215-6554 or [email protected].
