I’m very excited to announce that I will now be making regular contributions to the “Unique Spaces” section of the DC real estate blog, DC Urban Turf. Every two weeks, they’ve asked me to write a post on a space that is, well, unique — not necessarily on the market, although it helps, but a space that has an interesting pedigree or history. Previous posts have included a houses that had former lives as a restaurant, carriage house, or livery stable.

A log cabin built in 1921:
And a renovated farmhouse, which was previously owned by NBC Weatherman Willard Scott:
