Sound the alarm: This three-bedroom, 3.5-bath condo unit inside a converted fire station building in Silver Spring is on the market for $1,050,000. The home boasts roughly 1,900 square feet of space and light-filled rooms, thanks in part to large windows on the ground floor. The building used to serve as a fire station for the National Park Seminary, a former all-girls boarding school, in the early 20th century. The site also once housed a resort hotel.
The home has heated floors, modern stainless steel appliances, and silestone counters. It also comes with plenty of outdoor space, including private patios in the front and on the rooftop. The second level contains three full, en-suite bathrooms, and there are large closets in the master bedroom. The third level, which features a pitched ceiling, can be used as an office. Three parking spaces are also included with the unit, with two of them located in a garage.
The unit is the first of 14 planned for the site, and the Forest Glen Metro stop is a quick drive away. Both the National Museum of Health and Medicine and Rock Creek are within walking distance. Compass’s Kendall Splawn is serving as the listing agent. HOA dues: $371 a month.
