Our parking meters may only cost 25 cents an hour, but a one-bedroom, one-bath condo in the renovated historic firehouse on Farragut Street will cost you $419,000, according to a listing on Redfin.
The condo lives up to the standards of some of D.C.’s swanker neighborhoods with nine-foot ceilings, brick walls, metal staircases, granite countertops and bamboo floors plus lots of natural light thanks to the expansive windows. And you get a generous 1,267 square feet, plus a parking space— two amenities you won’t often see in Dupont Circle.
So far the Hyattsville Wire has seen only one listing online thanks to a tip from a reader, though there are a total of eight residential condos for sale.
According to an article from the Hyattsville Life & Times in October 2011, one of the condos is two stories, with three bedrooms and 19-foot ceilings.
The condos occupy what used to be the city’s original municipal building and firehouse and were developed by Hyattsville architect Garth Rockcastle, founding principal of MS&R Architecture and a professor at the University of Maryland. His firm won an American Institute of Architects Honor Award in 2010.
