Best New Listings: High Design in the District and a Takoma Park Dutch Colonial

by Lark Turner

In this week’s Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at an old-fashioned interior in Takoma Park; an exacting condo in Forest Hills; and a high-end rowhouse renovation in LeDroit Park.

A Luxe Two-Bedroom in Forest Hills

This unit on Connecticut Avenue in Forest Hills has been updated to an exacting standard; the kitchen in particular looks nothing like what you’d find in most DC condos. The bedrooms are large, as are the living room and den. The separate dining room off the kitchen makes this a great space to entertain a group. The 1,600 square-foot unit also comes with its own parking space.

  • Full Listing: 3901 Connecticut Avenue NW #301 (map)
  • Price: $814,750
  • HOA Fee: $692/month
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1920
  • Listing Agent: Christopher Sanders, Century 21 Redwood Realty

A High-End Renovation to a Bloomingdale Townhouse

This renovation in Bloomingdale near the eastern edge of LeDroit Park has a wonderfully-designed small kitchen, with a tucked-away bar-height breakfast nook. The first floor has lots of entertaining space, and upstairs the bedrooms are fairly spacious; downstairs there’s a finished basement that could use a bit more finishing in the future. The home has a deep backyard with a deck, a stone path leading from a parking pad and a mature tree. Bonus: See if you can spot the mannequin in the listing.

  • Full Listing: 61 W Street NW (map)
  • Price: $729,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1912
  • Listing Agent: Christopher Bulka, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

A Takoma Park Dutch Colonial with Character

This Dutch colonial looks a lot like a larger bungalow inside. It’s retained a lot of its original character, including wood trim (and, less charmingly, radiators). We are fans of the layout on the first floor, which is open from the living room into a sitting area and kitchen. There’s a large backyard with raised garden beds out back.
