Best New Listings: The Two-Bedroom Edition

by Mark Wellborn

In this week’s special edition of Best New Listings we look at two-bedroom properties around DC including a Columbia Heights unit with a spacious living area, a row house near the H Street Corridor that is made for a chef and a cozy property in Capitol Hill with a large garden and back patio.

Columbia Heights Two-Bedroom With One Heck of a Living Room


1309 Park Road NW, #202 (map)

  • Price: $519,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,111

The headline and photo above pretty much say it all. The best part of this Columbia Heights unit is undoubtedly the open living/kitchen/dining room space above. In addition to floor-to-ceiling windows and a gas fireplace, the room also a large kitchen island and high ceilings. The listing price for the unit also includes a parking space, but for the carless, the Columbia Heights Metro is just about a five-minute walk. For the full listing, click here.

Chef’s Special Near the H Street Corridor


1360 Emerald Street NE (map)

  • Price: $539,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1923

This two-bedroom row house not far from the H Street Corridor has undergone a number of renovations including a completely new and quite large kitchen that offers a lot of space for a buyer who likes to cook. There are windows throughout the property including bay windows in the master bedroom and living room. The home has central A/C, hardwood floors throughout and a small back patio. For the full listing, click here.

Cozy Row House With Large Back Patio in Capitol Hill


1406 South Carolina Avenue SE (map)

  • Price: $499,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1900

We don’t like to feature properties that could be off the market soon after we feature them, but we decided to throw caution to the wind for this quaint row house in Capitol Hill. In addition to a lovely landscaped garden and a large back patio area, the home has a good-sized living and dining area, an eat-in kitchen with exposed brick and a bright master bedroom. We are surprised that the listing price is as low as it is given the home’s location and plentiful outdoor space. For the full listing, click here.

    As a budding chef looking for a 2br on the Hill, the Emerald Street property is a dream come true.  Any chance they want to cut a deal with a first time homebuyer, to the tune of reducing the price by 100k? wink
