The luxury condos of The Montrose in Georgetown have only been completed within the year (and hit the market within the week), but like most condos in converted buildings, this grand old brick structure has a story. In 1913, the building was the headquarters of the Aid Association for the Blind of the District of Columbia. Later on, it was home to another foundation for the visually impaired, the Annie Hurt Foundation for the Blind. But while the enormous windows and stately columns show off the building's history, the condo's interior is all marble countertops and spa-inspired bathrooms. Still, there are many aspects to the condo that look historic but updated, from the finish of the wood to the wrought iron on the porch balcony and even the modern fireplace. Such a well-done renovation doesn't come cheap, though. This two bedroom 1922 square foot spot with its own parking space is asking $1.75 million.
