There are several blocks of century old properties in this area (identified as Shaw in the agent’s comments) that were originally structured as two flats. In addition to Q St NW, these can be found on Bates and P St NW, on both the Shaw and Truxton Circle side of the neighborhood. Typically, they have two front doors…one that led straight in and the other that opened to the stairs heading to the upper flat. A large number of this style of home was built by the prolific Harry Wardman ,(further disputing my contention that there is not a single “Wardman Style”. While many of these properties have been converted into single units, it’s not surprising that some folks are finally getting around to dividing these into a condo ownership structure.
The building was last transferred as a fee simple two unit building (with two 2 bedroom flats) in 2003. It was sold as condos in 2007, with the units selling at net $304,500. and $302,000. respectively.
Per the listing information, John Williams with RE/MAX All Pro was the disclosed dual agent representing both the buyer and seller.
