Best New Listings: Cozy, Contemporary and Cottage Core

  • November 9th 2023

by Ashley Hopko

This week's Best New Listings includes a condo in Logan Circle that was renovated in 2018, a Takoma Park cottage and a studio apartment just a block from Kalorama Park. 


Contemporary Condo in Logan Circle 

This two-story condo, renovated in 2018, includes open living space, ten-foot ceilings, a programmable gas fireplace and recessed lighting throughout. UrbanTurf's favorite feature is the circular den-type room; though not fully enclosed, it offers a sense of privacy from the main living space. A shiny metallic kitchen backsplash behind the stove catches the eye and contrasts with gray cabinetry and white counters. The lower level includes another entertainment space and both bedrooms, which have walk-in closets and en-suite baths.

  • Bedrooms: Two

A Blue Takoma Park Cottage

This three-bedroom in Takoma Park has a countryside feel thanks to its original oak hardwood floors and wooden planked walls in the bedrooms. In the living room, there's a wood-burning fireplace with teal-painted brick and soaring wooden ceiling beams. What was previously the back porch, has since been transitioned into an enclosed and conditioned flex room. The covered front porch is the perfect place to lounge on fall days.

455 Square Feet in Kalorama

The entryway features a nook to hang jackets and bags, along with space for a desk. The primary living area is open with nine-foot ceilings and includes a long closet for storage on the back wall. Limestone counters and stainless-steel appliances help the kitchen stand out and a breakfast bar island takes the place of a formal dining area. Seven designated parking spaces are shared by building occupants.
