Encore Development has transformed a former school building into 13 luxury condominium homes and town homes with elevators.

At Wormley Row at 3323 Prospect St. NW, just one block from M Street in the heart of Georgetown’s West Village, the old Wormley School has been converted to seven condominiums and six town homes. Built in 1885, the school was named in honor of James Wormley, a Washington entrepreneur who was an advocate for the education of the city’s black children.

The one- and two-level condominiums, priced from $1,295,000 to $4,450,000, have 1,395 to 4,050 finished square feet. The four-level town homes, soon to be on the market, will be priced from $4,300,000 to $5,350,000.

The main building has a lobby with an elevator and an underground parking garage. The community has landscaped grounds and an automatic snow-melt system for pedestrian and garage entrances. The homes have oversized windows and some include a private landscaped terrace and Potomac River views.

The homes have 9- to 14-foot ceilings, in-floor radiant heating and 5-inch-wide planks of white oak hardwood floors. Additional features include custom wood trim, crown moldings, recessed lighting, custom cabinetry, a wood-burning fireplace and a washer and dryer.

The kitchens have upgraded appliances, granite counters, a walk-in pantry and a butler’s pantry. Each master bath has a separate steam shower with a heated seat and multiple shower heads, an oversized jetted tub and a heated towel bar. All baths have stone floors and countertops. The homes also have high-tech wiring, a zoned air conditioning system, soundproofing between floors and walls, a camera monitoring system and a boiler-based system for unlimited hot water.

Unit one, with 1,400 square feet, is priced at $1,295,000. This home opens to a foyer with a nearby closet and powder room. The laundry room includes a closet for additional storage. The open floor plan of this home includes a center-island kitchen at one end, with a dining area and living room with a fireplace at the opposite end of the home. These spaces share a wall of windows. An adjacent breakfast room includes French doors to a terrace. This home also includes a master bedroom with a dressing area, two closets and a luxury bath.

Unit seven, with 4,120 square feet, is priced at $4,450,000. This two-level penthouse home has Potomac River views. This expansive home opens to a foyer with a view of the formal living room, which has a fireplace, two tall windows and a section with a high ceiling. Nearby is a formal dining room with a butler’s pantry leading into the hall near the kitchen. A powder room is nearby.

The kitchen includes a walk-in pantry, a center island, an adjacent breakfast room and an adjacent laundry room. Near the kitchen is a bedroom with a full bath and a walk-in closet.

On the opposite side of this level is the master suite, which includes a separate sitting room, two dressing rooms and walk-in closets, a luxury bath and a bedroom with windows on two sides.

Upstairs are a central great room with skylights and an overlook to the living room below. Flanking the great room are an exercise room with a skylight and a media room with a walk-in closet.
