In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a family-sized home in Columbia Heights, a Wardman-built row house near the Zoo, and a renovated condo near Bloomingdale’s main retail center.
Family-Sized in Columbia Heights
For house hunters with dependents, this four-bedroom home may satisfy. In addition to the large master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms upstairs, the finished basement, with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and second living area, may be a good place for in-laws. The home is a block away from 14th Street and a few blocks south of the main hub of activity in Columbia Heights. The listing still has some of the Victorian charm from when it was built in 1911, and we particularly like the full-sized entry mirror surrounded by extensive woodwork.
- Full listing: 2627 13th Street NW (map)
- Price: $725,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Year Built: 1911
- Listing Agent: Valerie Blake, Prudential PenFed Realty
Wardman Row House Near the Zoo
This Wardman-built rowhouse is on Woodley Place, a leafy street very close to the zoo. The high price tag is likely due to the location in the swanky area, but UrbanTurf spied a few features that betray the high-end nature of the home, like extra plush carpeting in the finished basement and a hot tub. We also liked the sunroom and the partially finished attic, whose dark exposed beams could frame a very cool space.
- Full listing: 2745 Woodley Place NW (map)
- Price: $1.129 million
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Three
- Year Built: 1925
- Listing Agent: Laura Steuart, Washington Fine Properties

Condo Near Bloomingdale’s Tavern and Bakery
This sunny unit is a block away from the Bloomingdale retail strip that includes Boundary Stone, Rustik Tavern and the brand new Grassroots Gourmet. The condo building, The Providence, was gutted and renovated in 2003, and this unit has a fireplace, oak floors and a generally solid feel. The southern exposure makes for an extremely sunny home, and the square footage is ample.
- Full listing: 70 Rhode Island Ave NW #403 (map)
- Price: $299,900
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
- Square Footage: 766
- Listing Agent: Thomas Castagnola, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
