School conversions aren't new to Washington, D.C., but this H Street Corridor music school might just be the example of how a conversion can go right. This corner lot listing was built in c. 1893 by one of Washington, D.C.'s most prominent 19th century architects, Appleton Prentiss Clark Jr., who is more commonly known for building the Embassy of Syria and the U.S. Civil Service Commission Building. In 1947, the abode was converted into a music school that taught 200 students, called the Washington Junior College of Music and Education. The 6,380-square-foot listing was finally restored back into a residential home in the 1970s and is now up for grabs for $2,250,000. The well-lit abode comes with oversized windows throughout and seven skylights. Original details can be found in the hardwood flooring, the moldings, and the ornate fireplaces. The listing also comes with an in-law suite and three parking spaces. To meet this listing face-to-face, showings are by appointment only through Taylor Carney at Compass.
