This week’s Best New Listings include a six-bedroom historic home in Woodley Park, a schoolhouse loft and a refurbished Chevy Chase three-bedroom.

A Woodley Home With Private Basement Unit 

Just outside the hustle and bustle of downtown DC, this Woodley Park home offers a nice balance of city life and proximity to Rock Creek Park. Built in 1910, traces of the home's historic origins can still be seen today, including the original hardwood floors, radiators, moldings, and leaded glass. UrbanTurf’s favorite aspect of the listing might be the spacious library near the front of the home, which features several windows and a fireplace. For those who need some privacy, or who want some rental income, there is a separate one-bedroom English basement apartment in the basement. This modern unit comes with an independent Certificate of Occupancy and has private entrances in the front and back.

A Sunny Capitol Hill Schoolhouse Loft
