This week's Best New Listings includes a Victorian rowhome with a mismatched interior, a large loft in Eastern Market and a farmhouse style bungalow in the Palisades.

Victorian Rowhome On the Outskirts of AdMo

If you pass by this Adams Morgan rowhome with its brightly colored door you might be surprised to learn that the historic-looking Victorian facade doesn't match the modern design inside. When new owners first walk into the house, they'll be greeted with a small living room that looks into an open-concept kitchen with a light blue breakfast bar. Out back, there is a parking space protected by an open-air garage door and five steps lead up to the slightly elevated patio. On the top of the listing, a roof deck offers views of the surrounding neighborhood. 

  • Full Listing: 1736 V Street NW (map)
  • Price: $1,295,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1907
  • Listing Agent: Mattia D'Affuso, TTR Sotheby's International Realty

A 2,000 Square Foot Loft in a Former Schoolhouse

With 14-foot ceilings, this 2,100 square-foot loft sits on the top floor of what used to be a schoolhouse near Eastern Market. Ten large windows line the walls and UrbanTurf was particularly impressed with the listing's main room which measures 31-feet by 31-feet. An exposed brick wall separates the kitchen and living room, with cutouts for the breakfast bar space and an entryway. The second bedroom in the unit also makes for an office with a built-in desk and bookshelves. A private covered parking spot comes with the listing.

A Farmhouse-Style Home in Palisades

In the far corner of NW DC, this farmhouse-style home comes with a sizeable backyard and a wide front porch. Many original features of the house are still in place - including the high ceilings, pine floors, wall molding and radiators. The kitchen includes a granite countertop island that overlooks the living room. Sage color accents and recessed lighting throughout the house brighten up the space. A semi-finished basement currently serves as a multi-purpose room. One of UrbanTurf's favorite features is the home's proximity to the Potomac River and Capital Crescent Trail.

  • Price: $1,500,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Feet: 2,669
