Best New Listings: Dupont Circle, Bloomingdale and Chevy Chase

by Mark Wellborn

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a condo in Dupont Circle that has a rare amenity for a one-bedroom unit, a Bloomingdale five-bedroom with “all large rooms, no skinny spaces”, and a four-bedroom Joseph Eichler-inspired listing in Chevy Chase.

Dupont Circle Unit With Rare Amenity for A DC One-Bedroom


This 626 square-foot one-bedroom is located in a boutique building called The Lindsay on S Street between 16th and 17th in Dupont Circle. Units this size in DC don’t usually have very large private outdoor spaces, but this condo has a pretty spacious deck off the living room. It has also been fully renovated and gets a fair amount of light from the south-facing windows.

  • Full listing: 1618 S Street NW, #4 (map)
  • Price: $375,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 626
  • Listing Agent: Lindsay Reishman, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate

A Bloomingdale Five-Bedroom With “All Large Rooms, No Skinny Spaces”


Bloomingdale residents that live near the intersection of 1st and W Streets NW are probably familiar with the exterior of this five-bedroom Grande Dame, however the interior may be even more noteworthy. The 3,700 square-foot listing has an enormous living and dining area on the main level, a second-floor library, another family room on the top level with a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows, and a large master suite. There is also a lower-level apartment that could be rented out and the property has off-street parking. As the description notes, the home has “all large rooms, no skinny spaces.”

  • Full listing: 2200 1st Street NW (map)
  • Price: $975,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Footage: 3,660
  • Listing Agent: Suzanne Goldstein, Long & Foster Real Estate

Four-Bedroom Eichler-Inspired Listing in Chevy Chase


Joseph Eichler was a real estate developer who built a distinct style of modern home in California from the 1950s to the 1970s, and this four-bedroom home near Rock Creek Forest in Chevy Chase was built with that design in mind. The interior has an open and airy feel and there are glass walls on almost every side of the property. The living room and master bedroom open to large outdoor spaces that look out on Rock Creek Forest, and like the Bloomingdale home, there is an au-pair suite on the lower level.

    Nice round up. The Dupont one seems under priced though?

    This is a great grouping of new properties on the market. The Dupont Circle unit is priced competitively so it will sell quickly.

    I would probably have picked this house instead of the bloomingdale house:  http://pix1.homevisit.com/tourLite/?id=51315&skin;=&ver;=

    $150k cheaper, rentable basement, solar panels, carriage house, and cool space closer to metro.  IMHO—better listing for the shaw/bloomingdale area.  Went to the open house yesterday and it was pretty sweet.
