Best New Listings: An All-American Farmhouse, A Home on the Hill and a Summertime Special

by Lark Turner

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we check out a wide front porch in Chevy Chase DC; a luxe colonial with a pool in Observatory Circle; and a Capitol Hill rowhouse with a charming exterior.


Best New Listings: An All-American Farmhouse, A Home on the Hill and a Summertime Special: Figure 1

A Tenleytown Farmhouse with an All-American Front Porch

This farmhouse right near Fort Reno has a wide-open, updated interior that’s great for entertaining, since the dining room is center stage while the kitchen is a bit closed-off in the back. The basement is finished with its own full bathroom and bedroom. French doors off the dining room open onto a deck wide enough for a couple of seating areas and a tall fence that grants privacy from the neighbors. The front porch brings a little bit of a country feel to the city as well.

  • Full Listing: 5031 41st Street NW (map)
  • Price: $799,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1926
  • Listing Agent: Suzanne Goldstein, Long & Foster Real Estate

A Charming Two-Bedroom Rowhouse on the Hill

This updated rowhouse in northeast Capitol Hill sits walking distance between H Street and Eastern Market. Though many similarly-sized rowhouses on the Hill only squeeze in one bathroom, this one comes with a half-bath on the main level. Upstairs, the master is big enough for a seating area and a hallway of closet space. The brick patio out back doubles as a parking pad. The only con? The street can be busy during the morning commute.

  • Price: $524,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1912
  • Listing Agent: Kira Epstein, Beasley Real Estate

An Elegantly Updated Colonial in Observatory Circle, Pool Included

Given the recent arrival of DC’s infamous heat and humidity, this new listing doesn’t look to bad right now. The pool in the backyard of the Observatory Park colonial near some of the District’s toniest schools and embassies is hardly the only thing to love about this house, though. The inside has clearly undergone a recent renovation, and both the kitchen and every bathroom look carefully done. (Sometimes only the master bath gets the attention.) We like the tiled bonus space in the attic, the covered two-car parking and yes, that pool, too.

  • Price: $1,795,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
