Affordable Adams Morgan Condo With a Pretty Little Patio

The main selling points of this Calvert Street condo are the affordable price and the location steps from Adams Morgan and Rock Creek Park. While the interior, decently-sized at 636 square feet, is pretty plain, the buyer(s) will have access to a rooftop deck and a cute front area. The current owner appears to have many flower and herb pots on the pretty grey patio, which faces the street.

  • Price: $319,000
  • Bedrooms: One

Takoma Park Contemporary With Many Glass Walls

In a neighborhood full of bungalows, this mid-century contemporary stands out with its interior and exterior glass walls. The three-bedroom home was designed by Charles Goodman, the architect responsible for the distinctive homes in Hollin Hills and at River Park in Southwest DC. Like the homes in Hollin Hills, the windows face natural, tree-filled scenes rather than neighbors’ homes. We also liked the sunroom and angled ceilings throughout the house.

  • Full listing: 7906 Takoma Avenue, MD (map)
  • Price: $475,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1951
  • Listing Agent: Arlene Koby, Weichert, REALTORS

  • Price: $614,900
