Best New Listings: Grassy Yard, Pointy Roof, and Windows Galore

by Shilpi Paul

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at a pointy-roofed Chevy Chase Colonial, a Brightwood rowhouse with extra windows, and a colonial in Chillum with a carpet-like yard.


Best New Listings: Grassy Yard, Pointy Roof, and Windows Galore: Figure 1

Chevy Chase Colonial With a Pointy Roof and a Finished Attic

This five-bedroom colonial greets guests with a tall, narrow, and pointy facade. All four levels have been renovated and carpeted, including the basement and attic, which, as you may expect from the roof, has a steeply vaulted ceiling. It looks like there is enough room for a play room and a bedroom on the top floor. The basement, which opens directly to the backyard and has more windows than a typical lower level, is also set up with a bedroom. A white picket fence completes the suburban-feeling charm.

  • Full listing: 3215 McKinley Street NW (map)
  • Price: $849,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1929
  • Listing Agent: Julie Roberts, Long and Foster Real Estate

Federal Style in Brightwood

This four-bedroom is a family-sized, solidly-built federal style rowhouse in Brightwood. The house sits at the end of a row, giving it an extra wall of windows, and generally the house feels spacious and wide in comparison to a typical rowhouse; several rooms span across the width of the house. There is also a potential “au pair suite” on the lower level.

  • Full listing: 7124 9th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $534,500
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1923
  • Listing Agent: Mynor Herrera, Keller Williams Capitol Properties

Three-Bedroom in Chillum With a Grassy Yard

Grass lovers might be interested in this three-bedroom home in Chillum; not only is the yard large and grassy, but the home also looks directly onto Fort Slocum Park and its much larger grassy expanse. The home is not huge, but has cute rooms (no open floor plan here), well designed closet systems for the bedrooms, and a finished basement with a bedroom.

  • Full listing: 231 Oglethorpe Street NW (map)
  • Price: $485,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1936
  • Listing Agent: Shani Walter, Central Properties

    I thought the below redfin link was one of the best new listings this week. I love the "bike nook". Plus, I always get a kick out of this agents listing write up. He is certainly, shall say, "creative"? http://www.redfin.com/DC/Washington/903-2nd-St-NE-20002/home/9890939

    Why isn't such obvious spam such as the comment above removed immediately? Is this a forum for self-promotion, or?
