The industrial remodel you've been waiting for! No expense was spared. Over $100,000 of custom renovation put into one of the most iconic school conversions in the city; Lovejoy Lofts (formerly Lovejoy Elementary). These early 19th century remodels which preserve the rich history of landmarked Washington DC buildings while incorporating modern luxury only come to market a handful of times each year. Soaring ceilings within this home make an expansive floor plan feel even larger.

Originally built in 1901, this school was named after Eijah Parish Lovejoy; a prominent newspaper editor and abolitionist who was on the forefront of anti-slavery in the early 1800s prior to the Civil War. Following his murder to the hands of a pro-slavery mob, he became a martyr to the abolitionist cause opposing slavery in the United States, while being praised as a defender of free speech and freedom of the press as well.
