by Shilpi Paul

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at a Capitol Hill studio with a porch, a Kalorama rowhouse big enough for two families, and a Lincoln Park home with preserved historic details.

Capitol Hill Studio With A Smart Layout and a Porch

This Capitol Hill studio made the list because of its interesting layout in a small space. It’s a bit of a squeeze, but in the 475 square feet there is room for an office nook, a comfortable living area, a full-sized kitchen, a queen-sized bed and a normal-sized bathroom. The limited square footage is only apparent in the fact that you are inches away from every other “room.” Additionally, a back porch offers breathing room.

  • Full listing: 101 North Carolina Avenue SE, Unit G (map)
  • Price: $269,000
  • Bedrooms: Studio
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 475
  • HOA Fees: $342/month
  • Listing Agent: Joseph Zorc, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Kalorama Rowhouse Big Enough For Two Families

The layout of this 4,468-square-foot home would accommodate a two-family situation very easily. Though there is only one main entrance, the first floor has a kitchen, living room, and a couple bedrooms, while the second and third floors have another kitchen, living room, family room, dining room and two more bedrooms. The home is stately, and the backyard is so well-groomed it can be called a courtyard.

  • Full listing: 1835-1837 Wyoming Avenue NW (map)
  • Price: $1.345 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1912
  • Listing Agent: Lindsay Reishman, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate

Historic Details Preserved Near Lincoln Park

This Capitol Hill rowhouse has been well maintained, and many historic details remain intact. Detailed woodworking, original mantles with embedded mirrors and arched doorways keep the home feeling like a 1912-built structure. As poet realtor Thomas Faison said, “Of all who’ve lived here, over 100 years, not one high-strung soul, but a string of light-handed habitants with gentle intentions who’ve left alone what was and is simple perfection.”

  • Full listing: 142 Kentucky Avenue SE (map)
  • Price: $738,500
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1912
  • Listing Agent: Thomas Faison, RE/MAX Allegiance
