This spacious condo on West Main Street offers luxurious living steps away from Washington’s downtown shopping and waterfront views. 

Built in 1934 and renovated into condos in 2018, 183 W. Main St. #201 is truly a unique place to call home. One of three within the building, this condo features 1,544 square feet of living space. The unit has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and features original hardwood floors from the early 1930s.

The unit occupies the second and third floors of the building, with Copper Canyon taking up the first floor. Prior to its renovation, the space was utilized by Washington Jewelers as extra production and storage space.

“The Rawls family, who own WIMCO, bought the building when Washington Jewelers closed and they converted the building into three condominium units,” said Realtor Scott Campbell, the listing agent for the property. “It’s a really good example of an adaptive reuse of an old building. It gave it new life and gave the town new residents.”

Exposed brick original to the 1934 building and a newly installed metal spiral staircase to the second floor loft give the vintage space a more industrial and modern feel. During renovations, the apartment was upfitted with all the modern amenities like new heating and air conditioning, new stainless steel appliances and a dedicated wine fridge and wet bar. The building features an elevator to be used by all three condos on the main level of the building and offers dedicated off-street parking behind the building facing Water Street. 

“Though we’re not really an urban location, it definitely has an urban, sophisticated vibe,” Campbell said. 

In addition to these features, the home is a smart house, meaning it can be connected to wifi and controlled. Parts of the home like the thermostat and lights can be easily controlled through an app on an app or through voice commands in conjunction with a smart device.  

The exterior of the home features original brickwork and a balcony looking out towards Water Street and the waterfront. On a sunny day, residents are only steps away from enjoying a walk down the boardwalk or sitting in the sun by the water’s edge. All of downtown Washington is only steps away from the front door of this home, allowing any resident the opportunity to entrench themselves in all the beauty and history the city has to offer.
