by Mark Wellborn

This week’s best new listings include a renovated three-bedroom rowhouse in the H Street Corridor, a large sun-filled, two-bedroom condo in Columbia Heights, and a four-bedroom bungalow in Del Ray.

  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Feet: 1,700
  • Price per SF: $288

You will be hard pressed to find a nicer three-bedroom home in DC for under $500K than this one. The rowhouse, located in the up-and-coming H Street Corridor, has exposed brick throughout, lofted ceilings and a fully finished basement with a large amount of storage. The master bedroom is the biggest of the three bedrooms with a full bath and separate soaking tub. There are balconies off both bedrooms on the second floor and a patio in back.

The real draw of this two-bedroom condo in Columbia Heights (beyond the price) is the living room. The south-facing living space has numerous windows that flood it with light, and is set up so that a desk/office area or breakfast nook could be configured and not intrude on the entertaining space. The renovation also includes new hardwood floors in the living/dining area, a gas fireplace, and a washer/dryer. For the full listing, click here.

There is a recreation room on the lower level which also includes a bedroom and full bath. For the full listing, click here.

    That home in the H Street Corridor looks awesome and I love that neighborhood, but is that a good price for the area?

  1. RL said at 4:59 pm on Wednesday May 20, 2009:

    No Rachel it’s not a good deal, considering its really a 2 bedroom with a finished basement and not a 3rd bedroom.

  1. EM said at 3:14 pm on Wednesday August 5, 2009:

    Well, you were wrong about that, RL, because we just sold it for more than 500K!
