Garages/Storage Space Built in 1921 Converted into a Super Sweet Home on Capitol Hill

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I never know what I’m gonna encounter when I roam DC’s alleys. Seriously. But last weekend marked a very happy encounter. I was wondering what was going on with this structure in an alley on Capitol Hill near the Hill East border:

One of the owners came out and asked me if I’d like a tour. Hell yes I would. Some times I get a bit jaded and forget how nice people can be. Mrs. Nash took me around the property telling me about the history – originally built in 1921 to store coal, ice, vending machines and more. The structure now has been combined into one huge home plus a separate in-law suit.

The main house was still being worked on but you can get an idea of how incredibly it will be:

Oh, and did I mention how high tech it is? It has a room that looks like it’s from NASA. It controls all the plumbing, heating, cooling, (radiant floors) etc. I hope to come back and show more pictures when construction is totally finished. Thanks Mrs. Nash!
