Shaw is among the District’s hottest neighborhoods for dining and shopping, so it’s no wonder that builders have targeted it for upscale developments.

Lock7 Development recently restored and remodeled a circa 1890 Federal-style rowhouse into two contemporary condominiums, each with three or four outdoor spaces along with a parking space and luxurious interior finishes. Known as the Burlingham, the condo is at 919 R St. NW, four blocks from the Shaw-Howard U Metro station.

One unit has been sold, but the penthouse unit, at 1,674 square feet, is priced at $1,299,990. This two-level unit has an open floor plan on the first level with a living area with a bay window alcove, an open kitchen and an open dining room with a balcony. At the back of this level is a bedroom with a wall of closets, a full bathroom and a private balcony. On the second level are a roof deck, a den or office, another full bathroom and a second bedroom with a private balcony and a wall of closets.

The unit has white oak hardwood flooring, high ceilings, tall windows, recessed lighting and energy-efficient appliances. Both bathrooms have dark gray tile flooring in a chevron pattern with white cabinets and Carrara marble countertops. The kitchen has a professional-quality stainless-steel gas range, an under-cabinet microwave drawer, pendant lighting and a herringbone-patterned backsplash. Custom millwork on the dining room walls adds a classic touch to soften the contemporary style of the kitchen.
