In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at a Petworth Wardman with a covered porch, a two-bedroom plus den near the Calvert Street Bridge, and a semi-detached, owner-renovated home in Brookland.
Petworth Wardman With a Covered Porch and Finished Attic
Last on the market nine years ago, this rowhouse has the stylish, lived-in feel of a well-loved home. Though updated, the home retained historic wooden trim, a heavy staircase, and a brick fireplace in the living room. Touches like a decorative wooden plate rail in the dining room, a 1920s ice box in the kitchen, and a covered porch add a lot of charm. Like many Petworth Wardmans, this home has a sun room attached to a back bedroom on the second floor. We also liked the finished attic, with its peaked roof, built-in shelves and cozy atmosphere.

Two-Bedroom Plus Den Near the Calvert Street Bridge
This Adams Morgan condo, located on Calvert Street just before the bridge, is in a 1906-built building with lots of turn-of-the-century charm. The living room and adjacent den have decorative floor-to-ceiling windows, and there are transoms above several interior doorways. Glassy french doors close off the living room and master bedroom, and heavy pocket doors separate the dining room. The layout is generous, and there is a covered patio accessible through the kitchen.

Owner Renovated Semi-Detached in Brookland
Over the past five years, the owners of this semi-detached home in Brookland have been making improvements: they renovated the kitchen, put in new hardwood floors, renovated a bathroom and installed a new washer/dryer system. There is still some unfinished space in the basement if the new owners want to make their mark. There are also several “extra” rooms, like a couple sunrooms and small third bedroom that could be used creatively. A garage and a driveway with space for two cars offers plenty of parking.

- Price: $475,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Year Built: 1927
- Listing Agent: Robert Lizardi, RE/MAX Allegiance
