Huge Petworth Home That Needs Updating

Right now, almost every element of the interior and exterior of this Petworth Vicrorian needs updating, but with a fair amount of work it could be restored to the stately mansion that it once was. With its turret, porch, white picket fence and 2,094 square feet, the home has the potential to be stunning. Here’s hoping a buyer with vision and skills snaps it up.

  • Full Listing: 4327 8th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $375,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1907
  • Listing Agent: Claudia Palacios, Fairfax Realty

Top-Floor Logan Circle Condo

Built in 1980, UrbanTurf likes the vibe of this one-bedroom in Logan Circle. Touches like semi-circular shapes above the windows and a separate kitchen differentiate the condo from the cookie-cutter units that can be found all over town. Other perks include an in-unit washer/dryer, tandem parking spaces and the relatively low HOA fee of $200 per month. Of course, many buyers will probably prize the unit’s location (just off of Logan Circle) above all else.

  • Full Listing: 1200 Q Street NW, #302 (map)
  • Price: $379,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 593
  • Listing Agent: Anthony Hain, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate

Update: This home went under contract late Tuesday.

Bright Takoma Park Bungalow With Raw Attic Space

We are fond of Takoma Park bungalows, with their wide porches and craftsman-style workmanship. However, unlike many of the bungalows this site features, this home still has an unfinished attic and basement. For the future owners, this means a lower ticket price and the opportunity to transform those spaces. The rest of the home is scrubbed up and updated in a light, breezy fashion.

    The first home looks like a challenge but I think it could be nice. It would take someone up to the renovation challenges.

    Agree with Carl. I think the Petworth house is a challenge, but could probably become amazing for someone willing to put in the work.
