Petra Development, a burgeoning design build real estate development firm with projects in numerous DC neighborhoods, announced today that its most recent residential development on Capitol Hill will deliver its first phase in December at 418-424 C Street, NE.

This property includes a newly renovated 1,100-square-foot, two-story carriage house in back featuring two full baths and a rooftop level, which could serve as a guest house or business offices and initially operated as a horse stable when the C Street, NE brownstones were originally built in 1888.
