The James B. Edmonds School was designed in 1902 by noted Washington architects Marsh and Peter and constructed in 1903. It is an excellent example of how private architects adapted the Colonial Revival style to fit school building architecture in the early twentieth century. The school has been used commercially over the past two decades. The school underwent an immaculate restoration and repurposing into 21 condominium units. Units inside the schoolhouse include original structural elements and masonry as design features. There are a variety of unit types and sizes, ranging from 500 square-foot, junior 1 bedroom, to “lofted” 3 bedroom corner units nearing 1,700 square feet.
On the remainder of the existing lot, four 3,500 square-foot custom town homes were constructed facing D Street and 9th Street.
The Edmonds School Condominiums sit in the heart of Capitol Hill, directly between Eastern Market and the thriving H Street corridor. While it is between two major urban centers, this location provides a quiet residential feel amongst tree-lined streets of historic row houses.
Projects like The Edmonds School are few and far between. The opportunity to renovate and restore the former glory of a historic school in such an amazing neighborhood is an honor that CAS Riegler takes seriously. These homes will forever be historically relevant and a truly unique Washingtonian living experience.
