In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a four-bedroom Cape Cod in Mount Rainier, a Dupont Circle two-bedroom for under $500,000 and a commercial building turned three-bedroom house in Capitol Hill.

Four-Bedroom Cape Cod in Mount Rainier

Best New Listings: Dupont Circle, Capitol Hill and Mount Rainier: Figure 1

Mount Rainier is a century-old community known for its arts district, its food co-op, and its active e-mail listserv. It also has an attractive and affordable housing stock that includes homes like this four-bedroom Cape Cod. The kitchen may be small and the home is being sold as-is, but the listing has good-sized bedrooms, a large basement, as well as a front porch, and a deep backyard. It is right next to the Glut food co-op and just one block from the neighborhood’s main drag.

Dupont Circle Two-Bedroom For Under $500,000

This two-bedroom condo located on the northern edge of Dupont Circle just below U Street may be a bit small, but it is pretty hard to find any two-bedroom in the neighborhood priced for less than $500,000. The top-floor unit has hardwood floors, a living area with bay windows, an updated kitchen, and a wood-burning fireplace. The listing also has an in-unit washer/dryer, there is a shared roof deck for the building, and the condo fees ($250/month) are relatively low for the neighborhood.

  • Price: $490,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1910

Originally a commercial storefront with living quarters above it, this building a few blocks northeast of Eastern Market has been converted into a three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home. The coolest feature of the home may be the soaring skylight that shines natural light down into the dining area (see photo above). The master bedroom has a small alcove for a bed as well as a covered balcony, and there is a large patio and a shed for extra storage off the back of the house.

  • Full listing: 310-312 11th Street SE (map)
  • Price: $799,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 2,208
  • Listing Agent: Lindsay Reishman, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate
