Best New Listings: H Street, Chevy Chase and Adams Morgan

by Mark Wellborn

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a Maryland Avenue condo with a rather unique floorplan, the developer’s penthouse at Delancey Lofts and a seven-bedroom Chevy Chase Village home with a wrap-around porch.


Maryland Avenue Two-Bedroom Condo With Rather Unique Floorplan

The layout for this two-bedroom unit just south of H Street NE will have its proponents and detractors, but UrbanTurf likes that the 1,415 square-foot condo breaks away from a more ordinary floorplan. The unit, located in a four-level Victorian, has bedrooms on the upper two levels, the kitchen and a seating area on the main floor, and then a rec room/living area on the lowest level, which leads out to a small rear patio. The interior has been redone with a stairwell that runs through the middle connecting each level, and the listing price includes a parking spot.

  • Full listing: 1328 Maryland Avenue NE, #4 (map)
  • Price: $539,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 1,416
  • Listing Agent: Matthew Shepard, Keller Williams


Two-Bedroom Developer’s Penthouse at Delancey Lofts

The four-level, 48-unit Delancey Lofts in Adams Morgan was renovated in 2006 with huge casement windows, 11-foot ceilings, and barn-door room dividers. This 1,300 square-foot condo was the developer’s personal unit (and actually has 12-foot ceilings), and after the seller purchased it, they enclosed the loft space to make it a more traditional two-bedroom. In addition to a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows (see above), the unit has the largest terrace in the project, which wraps around the exterior.

  • Full listing: 1701 Kalorama Road NW, #410 (map)
  • Price: $599,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,300
  • Listing Agent: Richard Newton, Washington Fine Properties

Seven-Bedroom Chevy Chase Village Home With Wrap-around Porch

This seven-bedroom listing is the type of home people think about when they hear Chevy Chase (not to be confused with Chevy Chase DC). It sits on four levels, has a manicured front lawn bordered on one side by a row of hedges, a large wrap-around front porch and a slate patio in back. The main level has rooms that flow into one another, ending with a large kitchen, and the largest bedroom — the master suite — has a sitting room attached to it.

  • Full listing: 9 Primrose Street, Chevy Chase, MD (map)
  • Price: $2.1 Million
  • Bedrooms: Seven
  • Bathrooms: 4.5
  • Year Built: 1918
  • Listing Agent: J.P. Montalvan, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

    Strange that kids would need to share a bed room in a 7bd home…

    I’d like a property that combines the porch of the Chevy Chase house and the window wall of the Adams Morgan unit.

    On the AdMo loft: went to the open house; was wowed by the super-long balcony, not much else. It has good bones, a nice layout, and lovely finishes, but closet space is only average (and the master walk-in is awkward and tiny) and the 2nd bedroom (loft) is VERY small. If you don’t need the storage and a big 2nd BR, you’ll probably love it. That balcony is great.

    I saw the loft in adams morgan yesterday too. I loved it…the terrace is amazing, very long and very private. I also liked the high ceilings and the high-end finishes. The bathrooms were beautiful! The place is very sunny too. The closets were on the smaller side, but there were 4 or 5 closets, so it’s not that big of a deal for me. I also like the enclosed loft, which is small but very private. I think the place is a great deal and it has parking too! I wonder if there’s extra storage in the garage ( not sure)

    Will somebody rent me that balcony at Delancey, just for the weekends?

    $539K for a 2 BR condo at 14th & Maryland? Wow, how times have changed
