The cornerstone for Grace Baptist Church was laid in 1891, with construction occurring over a three-year period. The distinctive castle-like ambience features turrets, spires, and pronounced bays. The 20,000 square foot structure housed a congregation of up to 1,200 for many years. But by the 1960s, membership had declined. The building was sold to Faith Baptist Church in 1970, serving a much smaller membership. With huge repair bills mounting, the church was sold once again in 1985 to Robert Herrema, a former Senate staffer who had turned to real estate development. Herrema was a pioneer of navigating the complicated waters of city planners and historic boards and adapting historic buildings to condominium use. Among his other projects were the Carbery School Lofts, and the Logan School Lofts.

More About Grace Church, Washington, DC

Herrema originally planned for 24 condos at Grace Church but ultimately went with fewer units in order to have more spacious layouts. Many of the residences have loft spaces, and there are plenty of original architectural elements left from the building’s historic past such as fireplaces, built-ins, fun nooks and cubbies, and deep-set distinctive windows. Some units have vaulted or other intriguing ceiling details. Kitchens were modernized during the initial restoration, and many have been remodeled further since that time. One particular penthouse has three bedrooms, three baths, and two sets of interior stairs. The boutique condominium building has an interior rotunda, and outdoor fenced grassy lawns and gardens.

Grace Church on Capitol Hill should not be confused with Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown. The converted former Baptist at the corner of 9th Street and Carolina Avenue is in the Eastern Market section of the Hill. The actual historic Eastern Market with its farm-fresh goods and local vendors is just a couple blocks away, and a local Trader Joe’s is even closer. The Eastern Market Metro Station is a little over a block away. Also close by is a greenspace known as the Playground at 9th and Penn, as well as lots of neighborhood bakeries, restaurants, and bars including Little Pearl, Belga Café, The Duck & The Peach, Ophelia’s Fish House & Oyster Bar, Ambar Capitol Hill, and more.
