Two-Bedroom Condo Alternative in Shaw

As far as condo alternatives go, this two-bedroom row house in Shaw is a pretty good option. Built around 1880, the 1,212 square-foot listing has a narrow, railroad-like main level that leads back to a rear garden and patio. The upper level has two bedrooms and a third small room that could be used as an office or, in a pinch, another bedroom. Condos in this area fetch about the same price per square foot as this listing.

  • Full listing: 617 Rhode Island Avenue NW (map)
  • Price: $515,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 1,212
  • Listing Agent: David Sprindzunas, Central Properties, LLC

Four-Bedroom Row House Near Lincoln Park With Roof Deck and Deep Garden

This four-bedroom Capitol Hill home doesn’t sit very far from the northwest corner of Lincoln Park. The Victorian row house has four finished levels, and the very top floor consists of a master suite with access to a roof deck. The home also has a recently renovated kitchen, a dining room with a wall of exposed brick, and a second level family room with a fireplace. The one downside to the home is that the listing price does not include parking.

  • Full listing: 1016 Massachusetts Avenue NE (map)
  • Price: $1.295 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1900
  • Listing Agent: John Parker, Coldwell Banker

The Tree House in The Palisades

The Tree House is a deserving nickname for this four-bedroom home in The Palisades because of its contemporary design and the fact that there are windows in almost every room. The house has a living room with a wall of windows, a walk-out basement with an au-pair suite, and a large deck that looks out on a nearby park. However, if you are not into contemporary, edgy design, this property is probably not for you.

  • Full listing: 5607 Potomac Avenue NW (map)
  • Price: $999,900
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Footage: 2,120
  • Listing Agent: Kristin Gerlach, Gerlach Real Estate
