In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at a Takoma Park Victorian built in a shotgun-style, a Woodley Park Wardman, and a penthouse on Logan Circle’s Church Street.
Shotgun-Style Takoma Park Victorian
Because the layout of this Takoma Park home is long and narrow, the rooms, at least on the main floor, are arranged in a “shotgun” style: each room is the width of the house and opens up directly to the next. The three-bedroom was built in 1853, but is nicely updated and bright, with many windows. The master bedroom has a peaked ceiling, and an extra window in the triangular portion where the wall meets the ceiling, making the room feel airy and more spacious than it would otherwise seem.
- Full listing: 7213 Holly Avenue, Takoma Park, MD (map)
- Price: $785,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Year Built: 1853
- Listing Agent: Meg Finn, Long & Foster Real Estate
Renovated Woodley Park Wardman
While updated, this four-bedroom Wardman-built rowhouse has maintained much of its original charm and layout. The fireplace and mantle in the living room showcase the original wood, and the layout keeps each room distinct, rather than opting for an open floor plan. One wall has been knocked out above a kitchen counter, however, allowing the cook to look into the dining room. A sunny family room sits at the back of the house, overlooking the backyard. The basement is finished, with another bedroom, family room and bathroom.
- Full listing: 2702 Woodley Place NW (map)
- Price: $1.075 million
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Year Built: 1924
- Listing Agents: Martin Toews, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
Logan Circle Penthouse on Quiet Church Street
The one-way Church Street is a desirable Logan Circle address, with its quiet atmosphere and industrial lofts. This penthouse unit takes up the upper two stories in a rowhouse, and has been renovated in a stylish manner. Many rooms are optimized for particular uses: the library is several walls of floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving, the living room is equipped with a custom audio system, and the walk-in closet has an efficient, organized feel to it. We also liked the roof deck, which has room for a cushy “living room” area, as well as an outdoor dining room and a grill.
- Full listing: 1517 Church Street NW, Unit C (map)
- Price: $1.475 million
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Three
- Square Footage: 2,431
- HOA Fees: $325
- Listing Agent: Charles Holzwarth, Washington Fine Properties
