Best New Listings: Capitol Hill, Michigan Park and Logan Circle

by Mark Wellborn

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a three-bedroom within a block of the Capitol, a renovated bungalow in Michigan Park and a Logan Circle two-bedroom with wide-plank wood floors reminiscent of lofts in New York City.

A Three-Bedroom Within a Block of the Capitol


Homes within a stone’s throw of the Capitol building don’t come on the market all that often, which makes this three-bedroom house, which sits about a half block from the iconic DC building, a fairly rare opportunity for some buyer out there. The wood floors in the house are salvaged heart of pine that were brought from out of state, the main level is long and expansive with exposed brick and has a kitchen with custom cabinets and Viking appliances. The listing also has a landscaped backyard as well as a rear parking spot.

  • Price: $829,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1890
  • Listing Agent: Jennifer Myers, RE/MAX Allegiance

Three-Bedroom Renovated Bungalow in Michigan Park


This three-bedroom bungalow in Michigan Park is typical of the housing stock in the northeast neighborhood, but unlike a lot of homes in the area it has undergone extensive upgrades in the past couple years including a new kitchen, a finished basement, and a new central A/C system. (However, the original wood-burning fireplace and hardwood floors have been preserved.) The deep backyard and front porch are similar to what one might see in upper northwest DC, but the price is about a third of what a home in those areas cost.

Wide Plank Floors and Wood-Burning Fireplace in Logan Circle Two-Bedroom


Located on Corcoran Street just off 14th Street, this two-bedroom unit in Logan Circle has wide wood plank floors that remind UrbanTurf of the floors in some New York City lofts. The two-level condo also has a large living area with a wood-burning fireplace and vaulted beam ceilings, and the second level houses both bedrooms, a washer/dryer and gets a good deal of natural light from a large skylight.

    I’m afraid the third isn’t exactly a new listing.  I checked it out during an open house back in June of last year!

    I think the Logan Circle place was on the market last summer, then taken off, and relisted 3-4 days ago.

    The bungalow in mich park and the capitol hill house look very cool.

  1. Liz said at 12:47 pm on Monday March 21, 2011:

    I’m most impressed with the age of the second and third listings.  According to Urban Turf they were built before Columbus set sale for the New World.  I didn’t realize the Potowmack tribe built in the Federal style.

  1. Mark Wellborn said at 12:59 pm on Monday March 21, 2011:


    Thank you for pointing that out. Appropriate changes have been made.

    I would be interested to know if the Potowmack tribe would be fans of the latter two listings.
