Two families socialize near alley dwellings in Northwest Washington. In 2016, D.C. zoning codes were changed to allow residential construction in more types of alley sites. A number of old structures have been renovated and refurbished. (Shuran Huang for The Washington Post)

Two homes off an alley in Northwest Washington. “Historic alley buildings — stables, carriage houses, warehouses — have high ceilings, expansive spaces with columns and beams and tremendous volume that allows for horizontal plus vertical design,” said Theo Adamstein, sales associate with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.
