In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a restored Victorian in Capitol Hill, a condo between Dupont Circle and Logan Circle, and a Chevy Chase Tudor surrounded by shade trees.
Pocket Doors in Capitol Hill
Unlike some renovations that tear down walls to create open floor plans, this Capitol Hill Victorian has maintained separation between rooms and retains a certain gravitas as a result. A vestibule with a checkerboard floor, a front parlor and pocket doors closing off the dining room feel elegant and old world. Other appealing features including a finished basement with a wall full of storage space, a light and breezy kitchen and a grassy backyard.
- Full listing: 133 E Street SE (map)
- Price: $798,500
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Year Built: 1907
- Listing Agent: Thomas Faison, RE/MAX Allegiance
Condo Sandwiched Between Dupont and Logan Circles.
Undoubtedly, this condo’s location between Dupont Circle and Logan Circle will attract plenty of interest. In exchange for the prized location, however, the buyer will have to live without too many windows, as the 1,150-square foot condo sits at the basement level of a boutique building. Though the main living area will need artificial light, each of the two bedrooms has something to bring in light — one has a window looking out, the other a glass door opening up to outside.
- Full listing: 1704 16th Street NW, #1 (map)
- Price: $574,555
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1,150
- Listing Agent: David Getson, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
Chevy Chase Tudor Behind a Black Iron Fence
We’ve long been fans of Tudors, with their asymmetrically sloped roofs and vaguely European charm. This Chevy Chase five-bedroom also has an addition on the back that looks like it is being used as a narrow but sunny sitting room. A fence surrounds the lot, which is grassy with a giant shade tree in the front and stone grill and garage-like structure in the backyard. A full gut renovation at some point brought in fancy flooring, tile and kitchen amenities.
- Full listing: 5616 Nebraska Ave NW (map)
- Price: $1.199 million
- Bedrooms: Five
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Year Built: 1932
- Listing Agent: Kelvin Reaves, RE/MAX Allegiance
