While there are plenty of public pools to splash in, what better way to enjoy the summer than from the comforts of one’s own home? Below, Curbed has compiled five listings currently on the Washington, D.C. market, each with their own pool and or hot tub. These residences range from a roughly 140-year-old former factory to a $12 million mansion with a movie theater.
↑ In Capitol Hill, this c. 1877-built was originally constructed to serve as a stable. Later, the property served as an organ factory for 60 years, powered by a gasoline engine. Around 1963, Capitol Hill developer William Richards and architects Huff and Drayton converted the property into a two-bedroom residence. It still retains much of its original details, including its exposed brick walls and beamed ceilings. Now, it’s on the market for $2.3 million.
