Best New Listings: Columbia Heights, Capitol Hill and Logan Circle

by Mark Wellborn

This week’s best new listings in the DC area include a renovated three-bedroom rowhouse in Columbia Heights, a vintage three-level Victorian in Capitol Hill and a two-bedroom condo in Logan Circle inspired by this past weekend’s house tour.

Renovated Three-Bedroom Rowhouse Near Red Rocks Pizza in Columbia Heights


3331 11th Street NW (map)

  • Price: $499,990
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1913

It seems that there are a growing number of well-priced, renovated properties springing up in Columbia Heights these days, and this three-bedroom home is evidence of that trend. While the original architectural details of this 1913 row house were kept intact, it has a new gourmet kitchen with recycled glass countertops and an open main floor (see above) that would be great for entertaining. It also doesn’t hurt that this property sits right next to RedRocks Pizza, one of DC’s better pizzerias. For the full listing, click here.

Three-Level Vintage Victorian in Capitol Hill


1235 Independence Avenue SE (map)

  • Price: $849,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1908

This three-bedroom Victorian will likely remind you of the classic Capitol Hill homes that you see when you stroll down the main blocks like East Capitol Street. The property has three levels, a new garage, an enormous master bedroom suite on the top floor, and “one of the best gourmet kitchens on Cap Hill,” according to the listing description. Our favorite touch: the sun room off the kitchen that is framed by two glass doors leading out to the backyard. For the full listing, click here.

Editor’s Choice: Two-Bedroom Condo in Logan Circle Victorian


1707 13th Street NW, #1 (map)

  • Price: $618,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 1,102
  • Price per SF: $561
  • Year Built: 1899

After viewing the spectacular housing stock on display at Sunday’s Logan Circle House Tour, this two-bedroom on 13th Street is admittedly more of an editor’s choice than usual. However, with 11-foot ceilings, a great gourmet kitchen and a couple of good-sized bedrooms, we think that it deserves a mention in this week’s installment of Best New Listings.

    Man, I looked at that 11th St one back in September when it was just a shell going for <200K and I was going to make an offer, but it got snapped up *immediately* by an investor. Sigh…
