This week’s Best New Listings includes a top-floor co-op, a home in Woodridge, a semi-detached house in Capitol Hill.

A Top-Floor Corner Co-Op

This top-floor, corner one-bedroom sits among the Tudor-style co-op community of Hampshire Gardens.

The kitchen nook has terra cotta-colored tile floors, subway tiled walls, granite countertops, floating glass shelves, and a commercial hood above the stove. The bedroom has double exposure, a closet with built-in organizers, and a ceiling fan. The listing also comes with a separate storage unit, and the co-op fee includes heat, gas, and water.

Balconies, Bays, Bricks, and Bonus Space
