Built in 1901 and named after prominent abolitionist Elijah P. Lovejoy
, this former elementary school was transformed in 2004 into a Capitol Hill condo building that’s one of the more unique places in the city to live. Whether you live in a one- or two-bedroom unit, you’ll enjoy wide schoolhouse windows, high ceilings, exposed brickwork – as well as the deep, satisfying sense of calling as home a building that’s been around for more than a century. You’ll have all the comforts of modern urban living, and with private parking and a pet-friendly policy, you won’t have to leave your cherished car (or your beloved furry friend) behind for the chance to, literally, live at school. Units range in size from 870 square feet to 1,300 square feet, and are spread throughout three stories. And when school’s out, you can head up several blocks for drinks and dinner along the H Street Corridor (Granville Moore’s
, The Pug, and Maketto are your best bets), or you can walk over to nearby Stanton Park
for a relaxing weekend afternoon with a latte from Jacob’s Coffee House.
