I had more than the opportunity to revisit Chancellor’s Row in the northeast part of Washington DC with real estate consultants Janet Rushford and Jack Wang of DC CondoDomain. Even though the Chancellor’s Row was written up a while ago; there are several updates about Chancellor’s Row.
It is totally amazing to see that Chancellor’s Row, a new development of EYA, brings a unique flavor to this Brookland neighborhood. These townhomes are located primarily off of Jackson Street NE (not facing a main street) and surrounds itself by Catholic University, a monastery, a nunnery, a church, the Brookland metrorail station, and various retail vendors on 12th Street NE.
These swanky multi-colored 237 plus townhomes were built as part of the growing revitalization of the neighborhood. These townhomes include modern touches and provide similar characteristics of the 1950’s-1960’s Brookland homes in the area, which reminds me so much of the plain classic design of the 1920’s-1930’s style homes having a federal architectural feel and a front porch where a potential homebuyer can enjoy the fresh air.
While visiting Chancellor’s Row in the Brookland neighborhood, we were able to tour with an EYA representative named Mike. Mike discussed ZipCar being one of the community amenities for Chancellor’s Row and emphasized the importance of the metrorail station being nearby.
Mike also discussed the various models that Chancellor’s Row offer but only showed us two models which was the Barton and the Dupont while we were there. The first model was the Barton. The Barton included a foyer, a study/den, and a garage on the main entry level. The main level is where Mike introduces us to the combined kitchen, living room, and dining room area. The kitchen consists of stainless steel appliances, dark wood cabinetry, and a half bath nearby. The living room and dining room included exposed brick, hardwood flooring, a view of the church and the nunnery, and safety locks on the windows. The second level of the Barton model is the master bedroom, master bathroom, and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom was somewhat smaller in size as the window in the bathroom and the bathroom that adjoins took up the majority of the space. The loft level was totally amazing. The loft level included a third bedroom with an adjoined bathroom, a loft space to use for recreation, and a rooftop terrace to entertain family and friends.
The second model that we toured was the Dupont. The Dupont model featured the same similarities as the Barton for the entry level. The main level of the Dupont model did include a living room, dining room, and kitchen combined with hardwood flooring. The difference in the Dupont model was the kitchen and the living room. The kitchen included an island and the living room included a fireplace. The second level included the master bedroom suite, master bathroom suite, a walk-in closet, and a second bedroom (a light purple wall-palette painted on the ceiling) with a full bathroom adjoined. The loft level includes a loft area and a rooftop terrace that can be used to entertain guest, family, and friends.
Even though Chancellor’s Row is a new development in the area, there are also other several major projects underway including:
- Dance Place and Artspace. This is a partnership between Dance Place and Artspace to provide affordable live/work units for artists.
- Apartment housing to be constructed for Catholic University
- A development plan for Colonel Brooks Tavern area (901 Monroe)
