Surprises at Every Angle in LeDroit

Today's largest listing is over in LeDroit Park, a federal rowhouse with 2,700 square feet of living space and nine-foot ceilings throughout. The T-shape of the front room, currently styled as a dining room, comes courtesy of a bay window, while a corner fireplace sits opposite a corner built-in cabinet. The next room just past the stairway has a stepped wall; the level ends with a U-shaped kitchen with breakfast bar. At the top of the stairs, a set of French doors open to the master bedroom, which also has an exposed brick wall and bay window. The English basement is a full in-law suite with an L-shaped kitchen that is a smaller version of the one upstairs. The bedroom downstairs has a white-painted brick wall and a corner decorative fireplace. A nice little bonus is that the house also has a solar panel installation.

  • Full Listing: 1803 4th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $999,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Feet: 2,700

Bountiful Bonus Space in Brookland Bungalow

Sitting on a corner lot in Brookland just across from Fort Bunker Hill Park, this bungalow offers much more living space than apparent from the street. The master suite sits on the main level, as does a roomy mudroom and a separate family room that can accommodate other uses. Upstairs, two bedrooms share a bath with a slanted ceiling that has a toilet and a bidet with a post forming a partial partition. The lower level has a full bath and bonus space that could serve as a fourth bedroom. The house also has a rear deck, a detached garage with parking pad, and garden-ready but small rear and side-yard areas are compensated for by the spacious front yard. A side patio area also sits next to additional entrances to the main level and the basement.

  • Full Listing: 1245 Perry Street NE (map)
  • Price: $759,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Feet: 2,214
  • Year Built: 1925
  • Listing Agent: Kathryn Schwartz, Wydler Brothers

Park-Like Yard Space in Cleveland Park

This Cleveland Park home has the most impressive outdoor space of the listings featured today, with stone steps and small garden areas from the side of the house into and throughout the backyard. Inside, just across the foyer from the front door, a large built-in nook takes up most of a column abutting the staircase. A sun-drenched family room sits at the back of the main level, stepping out to the rear patio. Upstairs, the master bedroom has five windows on two sides and a nook that neatly fits the bed. The en-suite bath is reminiscent of a spa, with skylights, wood plank beams and a glass-enclosed shower and toilet on either side of the sink. The finished attic level has a trio of skylights and an inset wall bench. The partially-finished basement also has a full bath.

  • Full Listing: 3102 Rodman Street NW (map)
  • Price: $1,175,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Feet: 2,000
  • Year Built: 1926
  • Listing Agents: Catherine Czuba and Marian Lobred, Compass
