Thought to be designed by the NYC team of Edlitz and McKensey circa 1908, the building was one of the earliest telephone operator locations for the Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Company, before the much larger C&P building on 12th Street was constructed in 1928. The Constitution Ave location was later an apartment building and was rehabbed in the 1960s before its more recent transformation into stunning condo residences that bely the unassuming low-rise appearance from the street. There is a fascinating collection of floorplans inside, ranging from one to three bedrooms. The building is attached to a smaller carriage house that has its own address. Other notable buildings in the area include Car Barn, Carolina on the Hill, and the Carbery School Lofts.
