Sophisticated Row Home in Logan Circle, Washington, DC
Four Brothers embarked on a gut renovation of this Logan Circle Row House, resulting in two four-bedroom condos. At the start of the renovation, the house had few remaining historical elements that could be salvaged. To honor the building’s history and provide a unique architectural feature, the Four Brothers team repurposed removed floor joists and used them as exposed columns and beams throughout the interior.

Materials used throughout the condos include custom cabinets by Elmwood Cabinetry, quartz countertops in Empire White from Caesarstone, appliances from Miele, plumbing fixtures from Brizo, handmade Moroccan tiles from Clé, and assorted light fixtures from Hinkley.
This house was once occupied by George Prince who was a photographer known for capturing images of influential figures including William McKinley and Teddy Roosevelt. Prince’s photographs now reside in the Library of Congress. After Prince, the house was bought by Frank Charles Schrader, one of the first geologists to explore Alaska. In 1925, the Music, Social and Literary Club, better known as Musolit Club, moved into the space. The Musolit club was invite only and included educated Black men interested in politics, art, writing, and more. The Musolit was one of the few Black social clubs to have its own meeting house, making the property even more rooted in history. In 1961, the Musolit sold the house to a Howard University fraternity that owned the residence until 2019. Four Brothers then created two four-bedroom modern condos that remark on the history while providing a comfortable and stylish living experience.
