This week’s Best New Listings includes an Eckington townhouse with an attached rental unit and a six-bedroom home in Takoma Park.

An Eckington Townhouse With Rentable Basement

This renovated Eckington townhome features lofted ceilings, lots of exposed acid-wash brick and a rentable basement unit. Walking in, new owners will be greeted by a sizeable living room - complete with a built-in entertainment center and large front-facing windows. The open concept kitchen features a marble island, white cabinetry, a fireplace, stainless steel appliances and open space for a formal dining set. The primary suite on the top floor is UrbanTurf's favorite feature - with 12-foot ceilings, artistic tile work, dual sinks, a private toilet area, shower, soaking tub and lots of closet space. The basement unit features a similar design to the main unit, and the wood floors and recessed lighting are reminiscent of its upstairs neighbor.

A Takoma Park Family Home 

This Takoma Park Cape Cod-style home is on the market for the first time in 50 years and could be the perfect fit for a family. Thanks to a screened porch, sunroom and deck - there's a chance to get some sun and connect with nature, no matter the season. Though there is no typical primary suite, there are two large bedrooms, in addition to the four slightly smaller ones. A spacious main living room includes a brick fireplace and sunroom access, and a large multipurpose space in the basement would be perfect for a home gym or activity room. For storage, the home has a shed by the back deck, a large utility closet on the top story and another workshop area in the basement. Though the home is only located on less than half an acre of land, it backs up to undeveloped forest space.

  • Bedrooms: Six
  • Bathrooms: Three
