Kalorama One-Bedroom With Park Vistas

This one-bedroom is in Valley Vista, a Beaux Arts building located in Kalorama with many long-time residents. Perhaps the best thing about the 736-square foot unit is the sunroom next to the living room; the plentiful windows look directly into Rock Creek Park.

  • Price: $369,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 736

Capitol Hill Rowhouse With a Butcher Block Island

The 2008 renovation of this Wardman-style rowhouse opened up the floorplan, restored the pine floors and revamped the kitchen, which now has a very cute butcher block island. A finished lower level has a kitchen, a separate bedroom and offers a source of rental income. Other features include a porch and a grassy, landscaped backyard (complete with a croquet setup).

  • Full listing: 751 12th Street SE (map)
  • Price: $749,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1916
  • Listing Agent: Joel Nelson, Keller Williams Capital Properties

Mid-Century Modern in Palisades

This Mad Men-era home is rectangular, breezy, and sits on a secluded street on DC’s western edge. The layout means that there are a lot of rectangular rooms where the narrowest wall ends in a generous set of windows. The living room opens to the kitchen, and the styling feels stylish from a 1960’s point of view, with glossy-looking, white cabinets. The fourth bedroom is optimized as an office, and has a wall of built-in shelves.

  • Full listing: 4813 Bending Lane NW (map)
  • Price: $1.2 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1956
  • Listing Agent: Heidi Hatfield, Washington Fine Properties
