For Renovation Week, Curbed will feature homes, apartments, parks, and cultural institutions that have been revamped from head to toe.
Below, take a look at a roundup of 10 listings in Washington, D.C. that are not only big, bold, and beautiful, but totally redone. Many of these listings are around 100 years old, but none of them show their age save for a few features like original hardwood flooring, exposed walls, and such.
For more affordable options, see what renovated listings are on the market with asking prices less than $600,000 here.
