The Petworth neighborhood of Northwest Washington has experienced rejuvenation in recent years with homeowners and developers renovating aging properties, some of which have been converted to condominiums.

Hanson & Hanson Development LLC has converted the Victorian-style building at 4829 Fourth St. NW into five one-bedroom condominiums, upgrading the homes with contemporary style and classic detailing.

The developers named the condominium the Soteria Brownstone after the Greek goddess Soteria, who represents safety, deliverance and preservation, along with prosperity, abundance and soundness.

Located minutes from the Petworth/Georgia Avenue Metro station and bus routes within five blocks at New Hampshire Avenue and Georgia Avenue, this development is also convenient to other urban destinations. Residents can quickly get to the new Columbia Heights/Tivoli shopping area and to the U Street Corridor for shopping, dining and night life.

Logan Circle, Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle are also easily accessible.

The brick, stone and glass Soteria Brownstone has five one-bedroom, one-bath homes, each with front and rear entrances. Some of the homes include a patio or balcony, and each comes with a private, secure storage space. The building includes off-street parking and a fitness studio.

Inside, the homes have natural charcoal and golden slate walls, with both exposed and concealed ductwork, recessed lighting, crown moldings, Berber carpeting in the bedrooms and solid bamboo hardwood flooring in the living areas. The kitchen has bamboo flooring, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, a granite breakfast bar, maple cabinets and gas cooking.

The modern bathrooms have bone-colored tile flooring, brushed nickel minimalist fixtures, and floating glass and porcelain vessel sinks above a granite counter and an espresso-stained wood vanity. The homes are wired for multiple phone lines and cable and include a new water heater, a new heating and air conditioning system and a washer and dryer.

Unit 1, on the first floor, has 543 square feet, with a base price of $217,900.

A few steps down from the kitchen is a private patio.
