Best New Listings: Mount Pleasant and Chevy Chase

by Mark Wellborn

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a four-bedroom row house in Mount Pleasant that is filled with original woodwork and a deceptively attractive five-bedroom home in Chevy Chase DC.

Four-Bedroom Filled with Natural Woodwork in Mount Pleasant


Tucked away close to Rock Creek Park on the northern edge of Mount Pleasant, this four-bedroom row house will certainly appeal to some who likes a “woody” interior as the property is filled with rich, well-maintained woodwork. There are also some common features of Mount Pleasant homes including a small front porch and high ceilings, as well as numerous fireplaces (including two in the bedrooms) and large windows, including a set of bay windows in the master bedroom. On the lower level, there is an in-law suite that could be rented out. For the full listing, click here.

  • Price: $789,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1909

A Deceptively Attractive Five-Bedroom in Chevy Chase DC


From the outside, this five-bedroom home looks just like any other Colonial style house you would find in Chevy Chase DC. But the interior is surprising and caught UrbanTurf’s eye because of the high-end kitchen that flows nicely into the adjacent living room and the treehouse-like room on the third floor that looks like it makes a great home office. There is also a nice side patio and large backyard area. For the full listing, click here.

    Oakwood Terrace, its paralell Brown St, and the ally between them are filthy and rat infested. There are several abandoned houses there, as well as low rent apartments filled with drug users, other homes are owned by hippies/lazy trash who last mowed their grass and cleaned their porch when Clinton was in office - I’d want off Oakwood too!

    I just did a home inspection on this block and it didn’t seem as bad as maynard makes it out to seem. You should read the Prince of Petworth listing on this as well.

  1. TDS said at 1:48 pm on Tuesday August 3, 2010:

    I recently purchased a Victorian house with much of the original woodwork. The woodwork isn’t as attractive and well maintained as that of the Oakwood Terrace house.  Would painting over the woodwork detract from the value of the house? (Sorry for going off topic with this question.)

    @ TDS—I think you if you did it tastefully and professionally, it would not detract from the resale value. Is the woodwork in very bad shape?
