Best New Listings: A Capitol Hill Favorite, A Lot of Exposed Brick and A Fancy Tub

by Shilpi Paul

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a Capitol Hill house tour favorite, a LeDroit Park Victorian with lots of exposed brick, and a Brookland row house with a fancy bathtub.


A Favorite on the Capitol Hill House Tour

For those that have been on the Capitol Hill House and Garden Tour, this Federal-style three-bedroom home may look familar. In a recent write-up, the current owners are praised for restructuring the dining room into one that now seats twenty, moving the family room closer to the kitchen, and turning an unfinished basement into a so-called ‘junior man cave.’ They also touched up the kitchen, adding white subway tile to the walls and painting the cabinets. The master bedroom has an expansive built-in shelving system in the hallways and the large walk-in closet, and UrbanTurf was also quite taken with the back patio.

  • Full listing: 812 C Street SE (map)
  • Price: $999,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Footage: 2,074
  • Listing Agent: Christopher Cushman, Coldwell Banker


LeDroit Park Victorian With Lots of Exposed Brick

In 2006, this four-bedroom Victorian underwent a renovation that brought new floors and occasional patches of exposed brick to the living room, bathroom, basement and kitchen. The house is well-maintained, and we liked the rustic-looking fireplace in the kitchen and high ceilings in the master bedroom. There is also an in-law suite downstairs with a full kitchen and bathroom. The house is located close to the LeDroit Park community garden and the new restaurants popping up around the Howard Theatre. We hear from the agent that the home has already received a couple offers.

  • Full listing: 1805 4th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $650,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1906
  • Listing Agent: Sheryl Blank-Barnes, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty


Brookland Row House with a Fancy Bathtub

This two-bedroom has some vintage appeal, like beadboard paneling and a couple retro-looking light fixtures, and the bathtub of a much larger home; the master bathroom is outfitted with a two-person, fully jetted tub. The home is relatively small and modest, but has an in-law suite in the basement with a kitchen and bathroom. It’s located just around the corner from Brookland’s commercial strip, which is slowly improving: besides the excellent Menomale Pizza, news just broke today that a new bar, grill and coffee shop will be opening up.

  • Full listing: 1033 Irving Street NE (map)
  • Price: $375,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,112
  • Listing Agent: Andi Fleming, Keller Williams Capital Properties

    I’m so excited that my listing made UrbanTurf today. However, can you please correct my name to say Andi rather than Andrea. I’m not sure where you pulled that from.
