Best New Listings: Landscaped Garden, Clawfoot Bathtub, and East of Trinidad: Figure 1

A Capitol Hill Rowhouse With a Landscaped Garden

At some point, this federal-style Capitol Hill rowhouse, located just above Lincoln Park, was renovated and landscaped. The main level is open and flowy, the master suite has an extensively organized walk-in closet, and the backyard is an inviting outdoor room, with a large deck and a yard with intentionally-placed plantings and a small grassy area. We also liked the skylight in the upstairs hallway.

Dupont Circle Condo With a Clawfoot Bathtub

The listing for this one-bedroom condo doesn’t reveal the square footage, but what it may lack in size, it makes up for in cute details, like a decorative backsplash in the kitchen, a stained glass light fixture in the bedroom, darkly wooded doors, and a clawfoot bathtub. There is also built-in shelving and cabinetry hidden in various places, like by the front door and between the kitchen and living room.

  • Full listing: 1725 17th Street NW #415 (map)
  • Price: $359,900
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • HOA Fees: 644
  • Listing Agent: Jennifer Smira, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate

Rowhouse East of Trinidad and the H Street Corridor

This listing caught our eye because of its asking price below $300,000. For a well-renovated three-bedroom home, that price point doesn’t show up too often. A half-mile east of the intersection of H Street NE and Bladensburg Road, the home is beyond where much of the real estate appreciation and development in that part of town has reached. There are three parking spaces, a large patio and backyard, and an open floor plan on the main level.

  • Full listing: 1820 H Place NE (map)
  • Price: $299,555
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1941
  • Listing Agent: David Getson, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

    The "East of Trinidad" listing is one block from my house on the 800 Block of 20th ST. I bought there last July. Two things: first, while this neighborhood is technically called Carver-Langston (The same neighborhood as the high-end Flats at Atlas), it is part of Trinidad for tax-division purposes, and therefore, many of the homes are marketed as Trinidad. Second, while it is true that this area has not (yet) experienced the radical real estate appreciation that other areas have received, my house has appreciated somewhere in the range of 80-100,000 since last year - so appreciation is happening rapidly, but the price points had been so low that prices are still (relatively) low. Finally, this area is directly across Benning Road from the much-touted Kingman Park/Rosedale, and it backs up to the Arboretum/Langston Golf Course thus, it is the last remaining "affordable" neighborhood west of the river, and the streetcar is coming soon. Therefore, as Kingman Park rapidly appreciates, and the streetcar goes into operation, I would think that rapid appreciation is inevitable. Indeed, other houses nearby (and further east) are already going for above $400,000: http://www.trulia.com/real_estate/Carver_Langston-Washington/1810/
