In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at a Capitol Hill rowhouse, a two-bedroom unit in the U Street Corridor; and a four-bedroom Victorian in Silver Spring.

Best New Listings: A Fairy-Tale Capitol Hill Rowhouse: Figure 1

A U Street Corridor Top Floor Two-Bedroom

This home bordering the U Street Corridor and Columbia Heights has a living space with a large bank of windows and an adjacent fireplace.Though the living, dining and kitchen areas are open, we like the current owner’s dining nook off the galley-style kitchen. The listing has a study that looks like it might fare better in a university’s office building, but the space could be used to create a more comfortable space for reading or working. The two bedrooms are spacious, particularly the master, which has an en suite bath.

  • Price: $769,000
  • HOA Fee: $367/month

A Victorian Four-Bedroom in Silver Spring

This Ritchie Avenue four-bedroom has a classic Victorian look with a wrap-around front porch and upstairs deck. Inside are four bedrooms — one on the main floor is fairly small — with a nicely-updated kitchen and a family room, where sliding doors lead out onto a deck and a very deep backyard. The home also has a formal dining room and living room separated by a fireplace.

A Capitol Hill Rowhouse with Plenty of Nooks

This home, last sold in 2008, has been immaculately renovated in the last six years. Throughout the house, multi-level spaces and careful use of exposed brick make a visitor feel like they’re exploring a castle, with cozy places to chat, window seats to read, built-in bookshelves, a loft in one bedroom, a study with a library at the top of the stairs and a built-in breakfast nook in the updated kitchen. An outdoor patio and a lower level suite round out a listing that won’t be around for very long.

  • Full Listing: 1004 D Street SE (map)
  • Price: $1,079,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1908
  • Listing Agent: Peter Raia, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
