In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at a rowhouse half a block from the H Street Corridor, a condo in a former girls finishing school, and a sun-filled rowhouse just south of Tenley Circle.
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.
- Full listing: 9610 Dewitt Drive, #PH 101 (map)
- 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
