Best New Listings: A Jungle Bungalow and a Capitol Hill Cottage: Figure 1

A Takoma Park Bungalow with a Jungle Outside

This Takoma Park bungalow needs some work on the inside and functions more like a two-bedroom than three-bedroom, but the garden’s already been taken care of for the eventual buyer. The shingled bungalow has an attic space and an unfinished basement, as well as a charming exterior the looks like it belongs in northern California. The home has plenty of outdoor space with a generous front porch, and a gravel walk out back bounded by garden beds, plus a garage and a large patio. The price isn’t too shabby either.

A Kalorama Condo with a Balcony and Plenty of Updates

Given its price and layout, we can’t see this Kalorama condo, located in a small Federal-style multifamily building, lasting on the market much past the weekend. There are two nicely-sized bedrooms sharing one bath, and the large combined living and dining room has a wall of built-in bookcases that add character to the space. The unit has a charming balcony that wraps around the side of the building and an assigned parking space.

An 1806 Capitol Hill Rowhouse

This cottage-like home was built in 1806, and it’s wider than the typical Capitol Hill rowhouse. Improvements have been added over time that make the interior pop. Inside, the layout also differs from the traditional set-up of a similar house on the Hill. There’s a separate living room with a fireplace on the first floor, with a combined kitchen-and-dining room in the back leading onto the patio. Upstairs are two generous bedrooms and a laundry room.

  • Price: $748,500
