A Kalorama One-Bedroom on the Top Floor

Located on the cusp of Kalorama in the Altamont, a Beaux Arts mid-rise building designed by renowned DC architect Arthur Heaton, this penthouse one-bedroom has a personality of its own. Delicate details abound, from the lionshead door-knocker at the entrance to the living room with skylight and coffered ceilings. French doors divide several areas of the unit, and the eat-in kitchen features an ornamental pressed tin backsplash as well as a thoroughly-modern wine refrigerator. The bedroom is also skylit and offers views of the National Cathedral.

A Picture-Perfect Kitchen at Pinehurst Park

Fronting Pinehurst Parkway Park in the Hawthorne neighborhood, this three-story Cape Cod-style house is a recent renovation, complete with a set of solar panels. The interior has lots of storage courtesy of walls of built-in cabinetry, and even the master suite has a set of walk-in closets. The modern chef’s kitchen was featured in Cook’s Illustrated, with its leathered granite countertops and six-burner stovetop. Picture windows flood the living and dining rooms with natural light, and there is also a stone paved patio in the bi-level landscaped backyard.

A Book-Lover’s Bliss on the Hill

The complementary Little Free Library on the sidewalk outside this four-story Victorian rowhouse may well be foreshadowing what awaits in inside. With nearly 3,500 square feet of living space over four floors, a rear screened-in porch, and large bay windows facing Lincoln Park, there is plenty to love in the house. However, a second bedroom with wall-to-wall shelving and an attached sunroom may certainly catch the eye of anyone with an extensive book collection. The basement level also has a valid certificate of occupancy which allows it to function as a separate one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment.

  • Full Listing: 1229 Massachusetts Avenue SE (map)
  • Price: $1,299,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 4.5
  • Square Feet: 3,472
