by Mark Wellborn

This weekend’s best open houses include a two-bedroom flat front row house in Capitol Hill, a well-priced three-bedroom brick colonial in Chevy Chase and a bargain of a three-bedroom in Mount Rainier.

Two-Bedroom Flat Front Row House in Capitol Hill


122 10th Street SE (see map here)

  • Price: $619,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Square Footage: 1,014
  • Price per SF: $610

This two-bedroom flat front row house in Capitol Hill just came on the market. The home has a living/dining area with a working fireplace and built-ins. Both bedrooms are pretty big with a good amount of closet space. The home has a deep garden and terrace in back, and its crowning amenity (what everyone wants in a popular DC neighborhood) is a parking space. The open house is Sunday, November 15th from 1 to 4pm.

A Well-Priced Three-Bedroom Brick Colonial in Chevy Chase DC


6120 32nd Place NW (see map here)

  • Price: $739,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Footage (Lot): 5,400

This three-bedroom brick colonial offers a lot of space for the price in Chevy Chase DC. Not far from Lafayette Elementary School, the home has a large main level with both a living room and family room, and a kitchen that has been completely renovated with stainless steel appliances and granite counters. A finished lower level includes a recreation room and a third bedroom. The property also has a detached one-car garage in back. The open house is Sunday, November 15th from 1 to 4pm. For the full listing, click here.

A Bargain in Mount Rainier: Three-Bedroom Renovated Home for Under $300,000


3814 33rd Street, Mount Rainer, MD (see map here)

  • Price: $279,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage (Lot): 6,000
  • Year Built: 1911

Mount Rainier is not just a neighborhood for the area’s budding artists. As this property illustrates, it is also a neighborhood where quality homes can be found at bargain prices. That listing price does not have a typo. This completely renovated three-bedroom home is on the market for under $300K, and features hardwood floors throughout, an expansive main level, a large kitchen, a formal dining room with a gas fireplace and three very spacious bedrooms. We give this home a week on the market tops. The open house is Sunday, November 15th from 1 to 4pm. For the full listing, click here.

    Love the Mount Rainier and Chevy Chase homes. A family is not going to do much better than Lafayette in the District when it comes to public elem schools.
