According to a history of the property, this brick building with the separate addresses of 929 and 931 Potomac Avenue SE was built probably in the 1840s - and since then it has had a fascinating commercial and residential history: retail grocery/bakery stores, residential apartments, offices of a construction and a technology company and a learning and social outreach organization. Most recently it's been the personal residence of its current owner with a 2,522 sq ft floor plan of 5+ bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms on three floors and with a 375 sq ft utility basement. 929/931 Potomac sits on a large corner 1621 sq ft lot. Per tax records, the zoning has commercial PDR-1 overlay, and the owner's current tax use code is 011 (residential single family row), which presents a wide range of possible future opportunities in one of the most historic parts of Capitol Hill/Navy Yard. Rare opportunity to transform 929/931 Potomac Ave SE as you desire in a location near the bustling Barracks Row corridor, and adjacent to the Marine Barracks, the US Transportation Department, National's Stadium, and the vibrant Navy Yard community. And across the street, don't miss the pretty and just redone park, community veggie gardens and play ground.
