    Wow, that’s the old Baptist Theological Seminary with all that ugly fake stone stripped off. Too bad they couldn’t keep the giant tree near the alley. I weep for the fireplace mantles and woodwork that will be destroyed in the developers usual neverending mission to strip out every ounce of character in pursuit of the open floor plan, exposed brick and gray walls.

      I understand wanting to update, but to strip the original details is a shame.

    These are the two tax assessment pictures from 2004:
    one for 1600 13th St NW and the other for the Q Street side.

      God, that stone was horrible.

    I met the owner about 1 year ago (when the faux stone was still in place) – he said he was planning to renovate as a single family residence – not sure if that is still the plan.

      Would be a nice SF

        Would be a super expensive SFR.

          This is probably 6000 square feet or so, so if it does get renovated as a SFH, and would have to sell for something like 4 million dollars to make it more profitable than condos.

      I’m usually against chopping up an old row house into half a dozen badly laid out, overpriced condos, but this place seems WAY too big to be a single family home in 2016 DC.

      I just looked up this place on Zillow (I realize it’s not the best place for accuracy, but it’s quick and easy). They say the house is just under 3,000 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Hardly sounds big for a SFH.

      Fingers crossed for this one not getting chopped up! (Assuming the original woodwork, etc. is still there and not already destroyed in a previous renovation.)

    An end user is renovating this. The brickwork was extensive and is even prettier close up.
