For over a decade now, UrbanTurf has highlighted the best new homes to hit the market in the DC area in a given week.
But there are often individual features of a home that are also worth highlighting. Today, we are putting a spotlight on some of those features.
The Best View From a Tub in DC
Plenty of listings on the market tout the views that they offer, whether it be from a roof terrace or a balcony. But no home on the market likely offers the view that this West End condo provides from the bathtub. In the main bathroom of a penthouse at 2501 M Street NW (that is actually two units that were combined into one), the view from the bathtub is a sweeping panoramic that stretches from Rosslyn across the Potomac to Georgetown and all the way up to the National Cathedral. This view and the rest of the 3,500 square foot unit could be yours for $5 million.

A 1,500 Square-Foot Converted Pool House
There are pool houses and then there are converted pool houses, and based on the one above from a listing in Chevy Chase, we prefer the latter. Once a shelter for an indoor pool, the current owners of this five-bedroom house in Somerset renovated the space with the help of Barnes Vanze Architects. The pool house is now an amenitized living space with a bronze fireplace, a sitting area, a stone hot tub, a sauna and a kitchenette.

A Putting Green Over the Potomac
A 3,000 square foot penthouse on the market at 3303 Water Street has a feature that will appeal to the golf enthusiast. On its 1,400 square foot terrace overlooking the Potomac River, there is a private putting green. The green is set up with three holes and even offers a little bit of a fringe in case the owner and their guests prefer to practice another aspect of their short game.
