The Best New Listings in the DC Area

by Mark Wellborn

This week’s best new listings include a relatively low priced, two-bedroom co-op in Kalorama, a beautifully restored four-bedroom home in Mount Pleasant and a three-bedroom townhouse near Eastern Market described as “MOMA on the Hill.”

Low Priced Two-Bedroom Co-op in Kalorama


2100 19th Street NW, Unit 303 (see map here)

  • Price: $440,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Coop Fees: $579
  • Year Built: 1928

This co-op is currently one of the lowest priced two-bedroom units in the Kalorama neighborhood. The floorplan (the largest in the building) includes a spacious living and dining area and a renovated kitchen. There are hickory hardwood floors throughout and a number of huge windows that flood the property with natural light. The unit has a washer/dryer and there is a communal roof deck, and perhaps the only thing that is missing from this deal is a parking space. For the full listing, click here.

Beautifully Restored Four-Bedroom Home in Mount Pleasant


1816 Irving Street NW, Unit 303 (see map here)

  • Price: $699,900
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1927

This restored four-bedroom home in Mount Pleasant still has many of its original details, as well as a number of new touches. The main floor has a living and dining area with the original fireplace and French doors that lead into a brand new kitchen. There are three bedrooms on the second floor, one with a private deck (see photo above), and another with a wall of windows, which makes it a great room for a home office. The basement has been completely finished and now includes a fourth bedroom, and there is a large private deck off the kitchen. For the full listing, click here.

Three-Bedroom Townhouse Near Eastern Market Described as “MOMA on the Hill”


212 13th Street SE (see map here)

  • Price: $749,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1978

The Museum of Modern Art is rarely used to describe homes in DC, but perhaps here it makes sense. Described as “MOMA on the Hill,” this three-bedroom townhouse near Eastern Market certainly caters to a specific buyer. A central atrium cuts through the middle of the property to illuminate a simple and contemporary design that includes a private patio off the main level, a third floor terrace and a very clean and sleek kitchen area.

    I was at the Mt. Pleasant open house this past weekend and it was packed. Home won’t be on the market very long.

    I also saw the Mount Pleasant house and loved it, however I am a little turned off that it sold just last month for $310,000. It’s a beautiful house, but I don’t understand the over 2x price increase in such a short period of time.
