A Three-Bedroom Langdon Cape Cod

This three-bedroom Cape Cod is located in Langdon, a hilly (by DC standards) neighborhood in Northeast that may not be on every city resident’s radar. At some point, the interior of the home was renovated, which means that it carries a higher price tag than similarly sized properties in the neighborhood, but it spreads out nicely over its almost 2,000 square feet. There is a finished lower level, a front porch, a good-sized backyard and off-street parking.

  • Full Listing: 2020 Douglas Street NE (map)
  • Price: $569,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1929
  • Listing Agent: Jonathan Eng, Century 21 Redwood Realty

A Two-Bedroom For Those Looking at One-Bedrooms

This Adams Morgan two-bedroom is the kind of listing that someone in the one-bedroom price point may want to take a look at. The unit looks larger than its 800 square feet, but space is sacrificed in the main living area to make up for two good-sized bedrooms. At just under $400,000, the one thing the listing is missing is a parking space.

  • Full Listing: 1763 Columbia Road NW, #301 (map)
  • Price: $399,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 800
  • Condo Fees: $293/month
  • Listing Agent: Catherine Czuba, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate

5,000 Square Feet on the Hill

Owned by the same couple for 50 years, this Capitol Hill house was purchased, renovated and expanded over the last 12 months by Ditto Residential into a 4,870 square-foot, five bedroom home. In the past, the property served as a primary residence with two rental units. Now, there is an expansive main level with large bedrooms upstairs. In addition to the terraced rear garden, UrbanTurf’s favorite part of the home is the large loft-like space on the third level that could serve a number of purposes.

  • Full Listing: 541 7th Street SE (map)
  • Price: $2.495 million
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: Seven
  • Square Footage: 4,870
  • Listing Agents: Pamela Wye and Claudia Donovan, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

A Patio, Lockers and A Great Rec Room on the Hill

There are a variety of cool things about this three-bedroom Victorian on the Hill. Renovated by the owner, a landscape architect, the home has a very cool kitchen with a wood-beamed ceiling, a screen porch lined with lockers that leads out to a patio and the original pine floors have been preserved throughout the listing. We are also big fans of the rec room downstairs that offers up a bit of a 1960s surfer vibe.

  • Full Listing: 120 10th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $885,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 1,526
  • Listing Agents: Maria Strylowski, Coldwell Banker
