The Best New Listings in the DC Area

by Mark Wellborn

This week’s best new listings include a three-bedroom row house in the U Street Corridor, a one-bedroom co-op in Dupont Circle with a hidden guest bed area and a three-bedroom cottage in Bethesda with a great front porch.

Three-Bedroom Row House in U Street Corridor


2234 13th Street NW (see map here)

  • Price: $639,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1895

The inviting feel of this three-bedroom row house in the U Street Corridor is noticeable as soon as you see the hardwood floors in the living room after walking through the front door. The living room then leads into the dining area and kitchen completing the open floor plan of the home’s main floor. The kitchen has silestone counters and a walk-in pantry, and there is a wood-burning fireplace in the living room. Although it is just three blocks from the U Street/Cardozo Metro stop on the Green line, the property has a secure parking space in back. For the full listing, click here.

One-Bedroom Co-op in Dupont Circle with Hidden Guest Bed Area


1734 P Street NW, #55 (see map here)

  • Price: $375,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1914

Perhaps Murphy beds are a reminder of the 1960s, but in this one-bedroom co-op in Dupont Circle we are reminded of their utility. The co-op sits on the top floor of the Avondale condo development on P Street between 17th and 18th. The master bedroom is large enough that the Murphy bed never has to go back into the wall, and the second Murphy bed is discretely placed near the front door and only needs to come out when guests come to visit. The unit has all hardwood floors, dual walk-in closets, central A/C and rental parking is also available. For the full listing, click here.

Three-Bedroom Cottage in Bethesda with Beautiful Front Porch


4611 West Virginia Avenue, Bethesda, MD (see map here)

  • Price: $739,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1928

The porch of this three-bedroom cottage in Bethesda is evidence of just how nice it can be to live right outside of DC. The home’s kitchen has also been remodeled and enlarged and now has an island with a built-in wine cooler. Two of the bedrooms are on this main level and the third is on the finished lower level. There is plenty of storage in the attic and there is also a shed in the back of the landscaped yard. For the full listing, click here.

    Love that porch, especially the beautiful floor. Those truly are some beautiful pieces of Washington DC real estate.

    This U street home is a beauty and the location is great. Nice renovation. Pricing seems good. Any ideas on trends in the area?
