Georgetown Victorian With a Narrow Footprint

Though this Georgetown Victorian isn’t the largest home, it makes good use of its limited square footage. The kitchen table is pushed up to a cushy banquette, making room for a dining area in a smaller space. The lower level is finished and is usable as a guest room, and the master bedroom’s bay window area creates room for a small reading nook. We also liked the backyard, which is paved with flagstone and edged by tall trees.

Columbia Heights Rowhouse with Exposed Brick

This four-bedroom rowhouse was renovated in a cozy, urban style: the wood trim around the windows and doorways has been painted a glossy black, there is a wall of exposed brick in the kitchen and adjacent sunroom, and many of the rooms are painted with bold colors. One of the bedrooms opens up to a sizable second-story deck, which sits on top of the sunroom. Finally, the lower level has been converted into a one-bedroom in-law suite, complete with a kitchen, bathroom and laundry area.

A Tiered Backyard North of Hillcrest

The largest of our options today, this home is located just north of Hillcrest, the suburban-feeling neighborhood east of the Anacostia River. The home has an adorable curb appeal: the facade is 100 percent brick with steeply peaked roof lines, and the house sits on a well landscaped lot. The main living area offers a compromise between an open floor plan and separate rooms: the living room, dining room and kitchen are separated by walls that have large cut-outs in the them. The back of the home is a standout area: a family room with three walls of glass looks onto the backyard, which is tiered, with stone steps leading up to two distinct areas.

  • Price: $449,900
  • Bedrooms: Six
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
