In this week’s Best New Listings, UrbanTurf takes a look at three new homes to hit the market that sit on some of DC’s lesser-known streets.
A Two-Bedroom on Logan Circle’s Old Industrial Row
This two-bedroom sits in a three-story loft-like building on Johnson Avenue, a one-block street right near 14th Street that used to be populated with garages and auto shops. The unit has a galley-style kitchen that’s open to a generously-sized shared living and dining space with a fireplace and a large wall of industrial windows. The bedrooms aren’t enclosed, but sliding doors shut each one off for privacy. The building has a cool, large garden on the roof, and the unit comes with one garage space.

- Price: $720,000
- HOA Fee: $488/month
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: Two
- Square Footage: 1,041
- Listing Agent: Meredith Margolis, Long & Foster Real Estate
A Home on the Hill’s Friendliest Block
Walter Street is a 48-house block tucked away on Capitol Hill where new residents receive “Welcome to the Neighborhood” packets, and there are widely attended Halloween and July 4th parties. This renovated two-bedroom sits on the middle of the block, and has a main level with a living room and a wood burning fireplace, a renovated eat-in kitchen, a powder room, and a dining area that leads out to a deep rear yard and shed. Upstairs are two good-sized bedrooms, as well as an office space off the master.

A Cape Cod in Chevy Chase DC
This Chevy Chase home has a farm-style layout, with a large open kitchen and living room with a separated galley-style pantry. It’s clearly been renovated, though some areas look like they could use another update, including the finished basement. The master bedroom is generously sized with a vaulted ceiling, and the two other bedrooms are on the same floor. There’s a cozy side porch and, best of all, a huge outdoor patio with lots of room for entertaining. If that’s not enough, the home is a short walk to Rock Creek Park.
- Full Listing: 2927 Northhampton Street NW (map)
- Price: $1,045,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Three
- Year Built: 1933
- Listing Agent: Kimberly Cestari, W.C. & A.N. Miller
