A Victorian Rowhome on Capitol Hill

Over the past three years, the seller of this Capitol Hill home installed around $25,000 worth of modern upgrades, but many original features remain, including the fireplaces with colorful tiling and most of the woodwork. A dining room on the main floor includes French glass doors, offering a dramatic entrance, and the primary bedroom on the top floor has views of the street below. On the ground level, an open-concept kitchen with exposed brick, a white subway tile backsplash, light wood cabinetry and tile flooring opens to a back patio and a small, concrete yard beyond.

Mid-Century Modern Next to American University

Located on a lot next to American University, this mid-century modern home hasn't been on the market in sixty years. With the exception of a few updates for modern conveniences, the design and finishes haven't been touched - and still exude that classic feel. UrbanTurf's favorite feature of the home is the library, with floor-to-ceiling shelving, backed by wood panels. The bedrooms are all fairly spacious and the primary suite includes two closets and an en-suite bathroom with colorful tiles. Downstairs, the basement is semi-finished and also includes floor-to-ceiling wooden planking, similar to what is seen in the library. The yard includes lots of bushes and a stone path. 

  • Full Listing: 4400 Springdale St NW (map)
  • Price: $1,150,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Feet: 2,057
  • Year Built: 1953
  • Listing Agents: Caroline Heinen & Michael Heinen, TTR Sotheby's International Realty

A Sunny Dupont Condo

This front-facing condo in The Cairo along 16th Street includes exposed brick and lots of sun thanks to windows on multiple sides of the unit. Built in an L-shape, the open living space is accessible through the kitchen - which has lots of wood cabinetry storage, dark counters and stainless-steel appliances. The primary suite opens with two French doors and includes a long closet along one of the long walls. The best feature of The Cairo may be the roof deck, which features 360-degree views of the city, as the building was erected before DC height limits were enacted.

  • Price: $565,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Feet: 735
