Best New Listings: A Bungalow, Conveying TVs and a Capitol Hill Koi Pond

by Lark Turner

In this week’s Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at a bungalow in Takoma Park with a screened-in back porch; a central two-bedroom condo for the media-loving buyer; and a Capitol Hill rowhouse with a koi pond out back.

A Takoma Park Bungalow with a Generous Backyard

This three-bedroom may be a little rough around the edges inside, but it is a lot of house given the sub-$450,000 price tag. Perhaps the best part of the Takoma Park bungalow is the screened-in back porch that looks out on to a big backyard. We also like the look of the two-story front porch, and the eat-in kitchen.

A Mount Vernon Square Two-Bedroom Where the TVs Convey

Located just to the north of New York Avenue, this 1,130 square-foot, two-bedroom sits in The Chatham, a stately rowhouse converted to condos several years ago. In addition to 11-foot ceilings, a steam shower, a fireplace and a private deck, the unit comes pre-wired with a recessed speaker system. For the media loving buyer, three TVs convey with the listing.
