Best New Listings: Roy Lichtenstein’s Sister Puts Unit Up For Sale

by Shilpi Paul

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a two-bedroom corner unit near U Street, a three-bedroom Victorian a few blocks east of Lincoln Park, and a top-floor Van Ness co-op owned by Roy Lichtenstein’s sister.


U Street Corridor Two-Bedroom Corner Unit With a View

This third-floor renovated two-bedroom sits in a triangular, flatiron-style building on the corner of 16th and V Streets NW, and offers a pretty sweet view from the living room. While the corner unit’s 833 square feet isn’t very spacious by two-bedroom standards, the layout gives roommates some privacy as the bedrooms and bathrooms are on opposite sides of the listing.

  • Full listing: 2001 16th Street NW, #301 (map)
  • Price: $475,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 833
  • Listing Agent: Jay Murphy, Coldwell Banker


Hill East Three-Bedroom Victorian With All the Fixins

This three-bedroom, three-level Victorian a few blocks east of Lincoln Park has been restored in typical Capitol Hill fashion: open floor plan, exposed brick, gourmet kitchen and in-law suite downstairs. In the past two years, the current owners have given the property a new roof, new doors and a new master bedroom closet, among other changes. The lot is extra long, giving the home an extra deep backyard, with balconies on the first and second floors. At about 1,644 square feet, the house also has three well-sized bedrooms, and its detail oriented renovation has led to a fair amount of interest, the agent told UrbanTurf.

  • Full Listing: 1527 East Capitol Street SE (map)
  • Price: $639,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1919
  • Listing Agent: Lee Murphy, Coldwell Banker


Pop Art: Roy Lichtenstein’s Sister Lists Van Ness Two-Bedroom

The bold styling in the entrance and dining nook in the top floor unit of this 1960’s building looks ready to welcome Andy Warhol, and for good reason: the current owner happens to be pop artist Roy Lichtenstein’s sister. The listing near the Van Ness Metro has a living room that opens up to a balcony, which looks out above the treetops, and the building’s amenities include a sauna, pool and extensive library. However, the best part of this deal may be what conveys: the seller is throwing in four posters of her brother’s large-scale framed prints with the sale of the co-op.

  • Full Listing: 3001 Veazey Ter NW, #1617 (map)
  • Price: $469,808
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,385
  • Listing Agent: Sharon Gee, RE/MAX Allegiance

Update: Not surprisingly, this unit went under contract late on Sunday after just a couple days on the market.

    3001 Veazey #1316 is already under contract, I’m afraid. Lucky buyer!

    Yes, lucky buyer in this case, but the condo fees can be exhorbitant!
