In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a Chevy Chase home with what could be the next trendy house feature, a loft-like condo in Mount Vernon Triangle, and a completely renovated Capitol Hill row house.
Three Walls of Bookshelves in Chevy Chase
Many modern homes boast floor-to-ceiling windows; instead of windows, this Chevy Chase DC colonial touts another floor-to-ceiling feature: bookshelves. The lower level is outfitted with at least three walls of custom shelving that surround a cozy living area. The main floor is less cozy, with several large rooms — living, dining, family and kitchen — all sharing an open floor plan. The four-bedroom house was renovated in 2011, and sits not far from the main drag of Friendship Heights.
- Full listing: 5121 42nd Street NW (map)
- Price: $1.095 million
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Year Built: 1958
- Listing Agent: Cynthia Holland, Long and Foster Real Estate
Loft-Like Penthouse in Mount Vernon Triangle
Madrigal Lofts is one of many new condo buildings that went up in Mount Vernon Triangle during the condo boom several years ago. This one-bedroom unit in the building has some loft-like features, like industrial-looking exposed piping, plentiful windows, and a few walls that don’t quite reach up to the ceiling. The relatively new feel of the unit will likely appeal to some buyers, as will the amenities — a rooftop lounge, gym and a 24-hour desk staff.
- Full listing: 811 4th Street NW #1202 (map)
- Price: $395,000
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
- Square Footage: 670
- Listing Agent: James Mangani, Continental Properties

Complete Renovation on Capitol Hill
Last year, this Capitol Hill row house underwent a gut renovation that expanded it deeper into the ground and further into the backyard. The rear of the house, which now has a modern look, was expanded to increase the living space, and the basement was dug out to create a two-bedroom rental unit. The renovation brightened up the home: we like the sun room facing the backyard and the large windows in the second bedroom. The listing also has a two-car garage out back.
- Full listing: 15 8th Street NE (map)
- Price: $1.4 million
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Year Built: 1908
- Listing Agent: Evan Johnson, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
