In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a few modestly sized houses: a Silver Spring bungalow, a Columbia Heights row house, and a Capitol Hill row house from the 1800’s.
White Picket Fence Living in Silver Spring
This Silver Spring bungalow makes up for a lack of interior space with a large yard, which is surrounded by a white picket fence. In addition to the landscaped yard, the two-bedroom house has a retro-looking kitchen, a claw-foot bathtub, a separate dining room, and a wide front porch. We also liked the sun room, which would be a great reading nook, office, or, in a pinch, extra bedroom. The house is very close to Jesup Blair Park and downtown Silver Spring, and is half a mile from the Metro.
- Full listing: 815 Islington Street, Silver Spring, MD (map)
- Price: $339,000
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: One
- Year Built: 1923
- Listing Agent: Judith Kogod Colwell, Long & Foster
Row House With a Peaceful Patio on the Edge of Columbia Heights
Slightly larger than the home above, this Columbia Heights row house is adorable in its own way. It makes the most of the outdoor space that it has, with a front porch, back patio and room for two parking spaces. On the inside, the house has a typical row-house layout and has been updated, with recessed lighting, nice floors, and a modern kitchen. The U Street and Columbia Heights Metro stations on the Green and Yellow Lines are both about half a mile away.
- Full listing: 2709 Sherman Ave NW (map)
- Price: $415,900
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: One
- Year Built: 1916
- Listing Agent: Robert Spicer, Spicer Real Estate
Capitol Row House with History
This is the fanciest of our small homes (and the biggest at 1,336 square feet). Built in 1880, the Federal-style home close to Barrack’s Row has been protected by the Capitol Historic Trust. The first floor has an open living and dining area, large kitchen, and a family room that leads to a back patio. The master bedroom is fairly spacious, with a cathedral ceiling and exposed beams, and the one downside to the house is that the two remaining bedrooms are a bit smaller.
- Full listing: 515 5th Street SE (map)
- Price: $779,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Year Built: 1880
- Listing Agent: H. Ryall Smith, Coldwell Banker
