See a Thomas Franklin Schneider Building's New Life as Condos


Condo conversions in Dupont Circle aren't a rarity, but the history behind the four-unit Anna Maria is more interesting than its well-preserved exposed brick walls would indicate. The original building was designed by Thomas Franklin Schneider, the architect behind the Smithsonian's Arts and Industries building and that predecessor to Height Act limitations, The Cairo. Even the name has some history to it; Anna Maria was the name of the woman who owned the Italian restaurant that had occupied the street level space. Three of the four condos in The Anna Maria are still on the market. Although the photos in the gallery below show off the largest one: a two story, 2,378 square foot offering with three bedrooms, all of the remaining condos have those unique bathroom sinks and a lot of natural light. So, check out the photos of the $2,199,900 condo after the jump, but know that there's a one bedroom option on the market for $659,900.
