The Pierce School was converted into lofts in 2012. Today, it's a blend of rustic nineteenth century architecture and classic but modern interiors. The two-story penthouse is 9,800 square feet.

According Sotheby's representative Troy Patterson, this loft, which runs for $252 per square foot, is a steal. "Last year condos sold in the $494 to $696 average per square foot range while all properties in the H Street Corridor sold in the $510 to $597 average per square foot range," Patterson said.
