Best New Listings: Draper’s DC Digs With an Artist’s Studio

by Lark Turner

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at some of the best five-bedroom homes on the market, including a mid-century modern home fit for an artistic Don Draper, an eclectic charmer in 16th Street Heights and a semi-detached renovated rowhouse in Woodley Park.

A Mid-Century Modern Home with an Artist’s Studio

The listing for this mid-century five-bedroom on a large lot between Kent and the Palisades lets sellers know they can “renovate or build new!” But we here at UrbanTurf would spring for the former every time. Sure, the bathrooms and kitchen look like they could use some updating. But the design of the home makes its 2,800 square feet look palatial, especially in the living room, where floor-to-ceiling windows let in filtered green light from the lot’s private trees. Perhaps the coolest aspect of the listing is the attached artist’s studio, which features high ceilings with a skylight and exposed wood beams.

  • Full Listing: 2905 University Terrace NW (map)
  • Price: $850,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1962
  • Listing Agent: Margaretha McGrail, Long & Foster Real Estate

A Renovated Five-Bedroom in Woodley Park

This renovated Woodley Park listing has some features that many row houses in the city lack: A side wall dotted with windows, for starters, plus a large garage out back. Inside, a wider profile lends plenty of space to the living room and open concept kitchen and dining room. A cozy landscaped rear patio completes the residential package just a short walk from the Red Line — but it will cost you about $1.5 million to buy in.

  • Full Listing: 2848 27th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $1,450,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1910
  • Listing Agent: Sheila Mooney, Beasley Real Estate

A Pop of Color and a White Picket Fence in 16th Street Heights

This Craftsman in 16th Street Heights offers a bit of a suburban feel with its white picket fence and wraparound porch, and UrbanTurf loves the pop of color the red door brings to the house. Inside a grand entry complemented by a good color scheme highlights the home’s traditionally-separated living spaces, which — thanks to big, open doorways — manage to avoid a closed-off layout. The kitchen, however, is compact, and a buyer may want to upgrade it.

  • Full Listing: 5017 13th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $700,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1916
  • Listing Agent: Arynne Crane, DCRE Residential
