House of the week: Capitol Hill pie factory-turned loft

View Photo Gallery: The Washington Post’s picks of local distinguished homes on the market.

This 3,100-square-foot property in Capitol Hill has housed a variety of ventures: It was a Kern’s Pie factory in the 1870s, an ice plant in the 1920s and a bottling facility after that.

Now, for $983,500, it can be your home.

“It’s got this old factory charm with 20-foot ceilings and really cool high beams,” said Tom Kavanagh of the Capitol Realty Team. “If you want a place where your friends walk in and go ‘This is cool,’ this is the house you’re looking for.”

The four-bedroom loft also has a floating concrete staircase and a 500-square-foot roof deck. It was built in the 1860s and has been on the market since last Thursday.
