Dupont Circle Co-op Built By Wardman

This Dupont Circle co-op will check a lot of boxes for one-bedroom hunters: big rooms, a well-maintained feel, lots of light, a location close to the Metro, and just enough charm — like a pretty tile backsplash and French doors — to make it feel different from the other units this size on 17th Street. Copley Plaza, the building where the unit is located, was constructed by Harry Wardman, which may explain the stately architecture. Like all co-ops, the monthly fees are on the high end at $603, but that includes property taxes, as well as amenities including front desk staff and a common roof deck.

  • Full listing: 1514 17th Street NW, #215 (map)
  • Price: $354,555
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 800
  • Listing Agent: David Getson, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Swanky Four-Bedroom Townhouse in Hillandale

This four-level townhouse is in Hillandale, the tony gated community just north of Georgetown. Homes in this exclusive enclave generally sell for upwards of $1 million, and residents include senators and other DC bigwigs. If a buyer comes along soon enough, they’ll be able to enjoy the listing’s community pool, as well as the tennis courts and clubhouse, with their illustrious neighbors. The nicest room in this four-bedroom house is the living room, which rises up two stories and is bounded by a wall of glass.

  • Full listing: 3956 Georgetown Court NW (map)
  • Price: $1.125 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1981
  • Listing Agent: Russell Firestone, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

U Street Corridor Row House with an Industrial Feel

A renovation turned this skinny 10th Street row house into something that feels more like a very tall industrial loft. The door opens to a cement-looking floor and metal piping in the kitchen and dining room, and the entire home is wired for audio. Going up, the second floor is comprised of one open space, used as a living room, and the top level has a spacious master bedroom and a tiny second one. One of the cooler features is a hatch on the ceiling of the top floor, which opens to reveal a pull-down ladder leading up to the roof.

  • Full listing: 1812 10th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $549,999
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1910
  • Listing Agent: Thomas Lewis, Redfin
