Best New Listings: H Street, Seminary Condo, Sunny Rowhouse: Figure 1

Narrow Rowhouse in the H Street Corridor

At some point, a renovation opened up the floorplan of this H Street rowhouse to make the most of a narrow layout. The living and dining room are in one open space, and the kitchen is tucked away. A skinny upstairs hallway is open to a balcony, lessening the potential for claustrophobia. Aside from the new finishes and appliances, the location just half a block from the epicenter of H Street activity will likely attract attention.

  • Full listing: 813 12th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $499,999
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1900
  • Listing Agent: Robert Williams, DC Home Buzz

Turreted Condo in National Park Seminary

The rare homes in our area that have been converted from schools, churches, or other unusual properties usually garner a great deal of attention. The residences at the National Park Seminary, formerly a private girls finishing school, fit this trend. The campus, near Rock Creek Park in Silver Spring, was converted to residences in 2003 with turreted buildings, a variety of architectural styles, walkways and gardens. This three-bedroom condo is bright, large and full of historic details.

  • Price: $870,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Footage: 2,951
  • Condo Fees: $885/month
  • Listing Agent: Dodie Butler, Long and Foster

End Unit Just South of Tenley Circle

Besides the nice renovation, the best thing about this Tenleytown home is its location at the end of a row, which means that it has windows all along one side and is filled with significantly more light than a typical rowhouse. Other highlights include a walk-in closet, sunroom off the kitchen, carpeted basement office and a fenced-in backyard with stepped gardens.

  • Full listing: 4224 40th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $725,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1939
  • Listing Agent: Diane Lewis, Long and Foster
