The Developer/ Contractor


Neshanic Development grew out of Founder Sean Ages’ love of real estate, architecture and design. Neshanic Development’s goal is to realize the full potential of DC’s historical homes, following a design philosophy centered on the integration of new, modern features with the original architectural intent. Ecologically-friendly features are also a
the hallmark of every project.

After successful remodeling projects, Sean and Neshanic Development have once again partnered with the expert builder, Jose Torres, Torres Construction, dedicated to attention to detail and fine craftsmanship throughout every project. We owe the beautiful architecture to Saltbox Design-Architecture, LLC.
