Best New Listings: A Dupont Circle Duplex, a Congress Heights Condo, and a Creek-top Ranch

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week, Best New Listings includes a cute Congress Heights condo, a rancher above Sligo Creek, and a house-sized Dupont Circle duplex.

A Cute Condo in Congress Heights

This 600 square-foot renovated condo is a chance to get into Congress Heights while it is still relatively affordable and before the redeveloped St. Elizabeths campus delivers. The unit enters into an open living room, where the kitchen is nestled into the far wall with generous cabinetry, a metallic tiled backsplash and a breakfast bar island. A protruding wall panel next to the entrance creates a small foyer on one side and a small dining area on the other, with the latter also next to the laundry closet. The subway-tiled bathroom has floating shelves with lights beneath. The bedroom has an office nook between two surprisingly deep closets. The building has a roof deck with grilling station, fitness center, separate storage units and a bike room.

A Hilltop House in Sligo Creek Park

An extensive wooden deck and paved patio serve as the front porch to this three-bedroom ranch house in the hills above Sligo Creek in Takoma Park. A wall of built-ins greets entrants to the foyer area, while the family room nook has an entertainment console and a stepped white brick fireplace between windows and built-in cabinets. The adjacent dining area has a built-in buffet, and the bright kitchen  is introduced by a bean-shaped breakfast bar extended from the countertops around the corner, which has an integrated oven and stovetop and a quartet of stacked windows above the sink. An office has a wall of built-ins and six windows that meet at the far corner of the room. A small paved walkway, accessible from the kitchen, dining room and owner's bedroom, is framed by a white stepped retaining wall concealing the terraced, woodsy backyard beyond. The house also has a driveway and two sheds.

A Huge Dupont Circle Duplex

A few blocks from Dupont Circle, the open concept main level of this 1,730 square-foot duplex unit features a sunroom-esque living area created by the convergence of two oversized grid custom Quaker windows. This sunroom effect is replicated in the dining room bay nook across from the kitchen, which has a concealed fridge, integrated cooktop, lacquered floating cabinets and a marble waterfall island breakfast bar. The main bedroom has a bay with clerestory windows and an L-shaped walk-in closet full of built-ins; the en-suite bath has a double vanity beneath a backlit mirror. There is dark-stained herringbone hardwood flooring throughout the main level, and the material and pattern also cover the walls of the powder room. The unit is also wired with a smart home system and surround sound.
