by Lark Turner

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at a Capitol Hill rowhouse built 15 years ago, a loft in a former Capitol Hill schoolhouse and a Palisades bungalow.


Best New Listings: A Young Rowhouse, A Capitol Hill Loft and a Palisades Bungalow: Figure 1

A Light-Filled Rowhouse Between Eastern Market and H Street

This relatively young (built in 1999) Capitol Hill rowhouse is dotted with skylights, has a colorful exterior, and the living room, set in the back of the house, has large windows leading out to a deck, patio and parking. It’s recent construction is evident in the wide-open plan. The kitchen is galley-style but opens out onto the living room, which features a fireplace. The lower level is unfinished, but spreads out over 1,200 square feet, making a good project for an industrious buyer.

  • Price: $949,000
  • Bedrooms: Three

A Loftier Vibe in Capitol Hill

A stone’s throw away from the rowhouse above lies this renovated loft-like unit, which sits in the historic Lovejoy school building, which was converted into condos about a decade ago. The condo has high ceilings with exposed ductwork, but the bathroom and kitchen hew to a more traditional style, with granite countertops and the usual fixings. The second bedroom is on the smaller side, and is currently set up as an office.

  • Price: $448,500
  • HOA Fees: $302/month

A Palisades Bungalow For the Family That Wants to Stay in DC

This bungalow in the sleepy Palisades neighborhood is the type of home that couples, who want to stay in DC once they have kids, hope to find. While the kitchen will need to be updated at some point, the home has a main floor with a living room, dining room and office, as well as a wide front porch and a backyard with a garage. The lower level is unfinished, but like the Capitol Hill rowhouse, it could end up being a project for the eventual buyer.

  • Full Listing: 5815 Sherier Place NW (map)
  • Price: $869,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1923
