Artisan Condos For Sale
Located at 915 E Street NW, Washington, DC 20004
A fascinating adaptive reuse project in the heart of Washington, DC, the Artisan is a 12-story luxury condominium building piggybacked onto the rear of three antique row houses. It’s not as strange as it sounds, however. The taller towers actually look remarkably similar in architectural design to the original structures, presenting an organic appearance of old city dwellings that are clustered together in typical fashion.
The specific neighborhood is the Penn Quarter, with the development’s address as 915 E Street NW in the District’s 20004 zip code. There are 160 residences altogether, along with commercial space, plus 73 storage units and 90 parking spaces. Condos for sale at the Artisan Condominium come in a variety of floor plans, including studios, one bedroom and two bedroom units. List prices generally run from the $400s to upper $700s.
Additional Info About Condos For Sale at The Artisan
Entering these delightful city homes, one is greeted by an open design with bamboo hardwood floors and tall windows that appear very traditional from the exterior, but are actually extremely large from inside. Many of the units have balconies, and all come with front-loading washers and dryers. The delightful gourmet kitchens offer maple cabinets, granite counters and stainless steel appliances.
Delivered to the public in 2006, the Artisan Condominium quickly became one of DC’s favorite new addresses. There’s plenty of common amenities here, including a twenty-four hour front desk and concierge, a state of the art fitness center, a roof deck, and a fantastic retro-modern club room with a long curved bar. The commercial space is housed in the original 1920s row houses, and includes the popular Asia Nine Restaurant, Bar & Lounge.
Condos for sale at the Artisan are within easy walking distance of all the National Mall and the White House. Residents will also find themselves extremely close to four Metro stations—Judiciary Square, the Archives, Gallery Place in Chinatown, and One Metro Center. Bars, restaurants and entertainment abound here, with Ford’s Theatre, Warner Theatre, Central Michel Richard, Tosca, Penn Social and so much more.
The Penn Quarter Story
Residents at the Artisan will find themselves in one of the oldest sections of Washington, DC. Penn Quarter is located along Pennsylvania Avenue on the northern side, between 3rd and 12th Streets and roughly bordered to the north by H Street NW. This Downtown DC neighborhood also includes Chinatown and is sometimes referred to as “Old Downtown.”
The age of the Penn Quarter neighborhood becomes apparent via its location—immediately north of the National Mall and just a few blocks east of the White House. Ford's Theatre, the performing arts venue where President Lincoln was assassinated, is in the neighborhood, so that should also give a clue about the area’s historic significance.
But while grand old buildings, museums and landmarks are common here, it’s also a place that has seen an explosion in redevelopment. Beaux Arts and Federal-style structures stand right next to gleaming modern condominium towers. And then, there’s the adaptive reuse projects such as the Artisan—a true hybrid of antique row houses and new tower construction.
Things to Do in the Neighborhood
As previously mentioned, the historic Ford's Theatre is not only a world class performing arts venue but the place where Abraham Lincoln was shot. But did you know that you can also visit the Peterson House—the place where Lincoln actually died? The Federal-style row house is across the street from the Ford Theatre. Lincoln was carried over to the boarding house and attended by doctors until he passed the following morning. The building is open to the public as part of the Ford Theatre National Historic Site.
Chinatown with its giant Friendship Arch is within the Penn Quarter general boundaries and a fantastic place to visit. Also in the Chinatown/Penn Quarter neighborhood is the recently renamed Capital One Arena (formerly Verizon Center), home to the NBA’s Washington Wizards as well as top concert performers. The National Building Museum is housed in the former Pension Building, constructed in 1887. These days it’s a mecca for architectural enthusiasts, and is also highly regarded for its museum store. The National Portrait Gallery, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum and the Wooley Mammoth Theatre Company are also top destination places for visitors and residents alike.
But perhaps the greatest sight seeking attraction is the world famous National Mall, located just two blocks south of the Artisan condos. The long grassy park is managed by the United States National Parks system and is chock full of national monuments. At one end is the Capitol building with the Lincoln Memorial at the western edge. In between is the White House which projects north, as well as the Washington Monument, the memorials for World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam Vets, plus numerous national museums including the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
