In this week’s Best New Listings, UrbanTurf takes a look at a bungalow in Friendship Heights, a rare three-bedroom condo in Truxton Circle and a home on Arizona Avenue that will bring to mind a classic 1980s movie.
A Friendship Heights Bungalow
Bungalows are usually found in Takoma Park and Palisades, so it is nice to find one in another DC neighborhood. The bedrooms in this four-bedroom listing are on the smaller side but the high ceilings make the spaces feel larger. The kitchen needs updating but leads to a nice rear living space with two skylights and double glass doors that lead to the home’s yard. Outside, there is a deck and the deep backyard.
- Full Listing: 4406 Fessenden Street NW (map)
- Price: $819,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1922
- Listing Agent: Greta Nicoletti, Long & Foster Real Estate
Almost 1,500 Square Feet in Truxton Circle
Two-story ceilings, tall windows in each room and hardwood floors are the main features of this almost 1,500 square-foot condo in Truxton Circle. The bedrooms are spacious and there is a small lofted area that the current owners are using as an office space. In addition to a roof deck, the listing comes with a parking space, a nice amenity in a neighborhood currently grappling with developments that feature little parking.
- Full Listing: 449 R Street NW, #302 (map)
- Price: $700,000
- HOA Fees: $528/month
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Square Footage: 1,489
- Listing Agent: Arynne Crane, DCRE Residential
Ferris Bueller on Arizona Avenue
Fans of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off may take a liking to this home as it will bring to mind one of the movie’s most memorable scenes. Designed by a protege of Mies van der Rohe, the three-bedroom along Arizona Avenue has a boxy design with a glass-walled, back room that looks out on the trees surrounding the home. (Probably not enough room for a Ferrari and the furniture, though.) A modern theme can be seen throughout the rest of the home, with above-the-counter sinks in the bathroom, track lighting and a sleek gray kitchen with flat cabinets and dark-colored appliances. Outside, the backyard space mimics west coast design with a pebbled lawn and a walkway that winds through the small bit of greenery.
- Full Listing: 3025 Arizona Avenue NW (map)
- Price: $1,899,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Four
- Year Built: 1961
- Listing Agent: Sean Satkus, Long & Foster
