Best New Listings: LeDroit Park and Adams Morgan

by Mark Wellborn

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a three-bedroom home on the western fringe of LeDroit Park where the owner worked with the city to restore the facade to its original form and a two-bedroom condo away from the Adams Morgan hustle and bustle.

LeDroit Park Three-Bedroom Home Restored to 1905 Glory


The seller of this three-bedroom home on the western edge of LeDroit Park worked closely with DC’s Historic Preservation office to completely restore the façade to resemble how it looked when the house was originally built in 1905. However, the interior of the home has been completely renovated and the owner was able to gain approval to raise the roof line on the rear of the property to allow for a third level that now houses a second master bedroom. In addition to an all new kitchen and new bathrooms, the home also has a rear patio and fenced-in backyard that looks like it would make a good venue for barbeques. For the full listing, click here.

Two-Bedroom Away From Adams Morgan Hustle and Bustle


This 1,060 square-foot two-bedroom unit is located in The Gramercy, a condo project in Adams Morgan on Champlain Street that offers a quiet space away from the hustle and bustle of 18th Street. What caught our eye with this listing is the wide open living space (that probably exists in the floorplans of many units in this building) as well as the floor-to-ceiling windows that line one wall of the unit. The condo also has 11-foot ceilings, a gas fireplace in the living room, a large master suite with walk-in closets and there is a private patio just off the living area. The listing price includes a garage parking space. For the full listing, click here.

    Love that LeDroit Park place.  Wonderful restoration.

    Cosign. It is always refreshing when an owner takes history into account when doing renovations.

  1. Matt said at 2:38 pm on Monday January 24, 2011:

    I’m confused, what history did the person take into account for the T street house? The interior looks fairly generic to me.

  1. Mike said at 4:10 pm on Monday January 24, 2011:

    The history is on the outside, according to the above article, it was restored to look like it did when built in 1905.  Take a look at the pic on StreetView and you can see the difference in the renovation for sure.
