Between Bloomingdale and Shaw

Located just below Florida Avenue on 4th Street NW, this home is within a three block radius of several cool neighborhood amenities, including the Shaw Metro station, Big Bear cafe, and the Howard Theater. The renovated four-bedroom has a short, narrow footprint, but spreads out nicely over three stories of living space. The back patio adds additional square footage (and looks like it was used as a play area for the seller’s children.) Another space-increasing measure is the laundry room tucked beneath the staircase.

  • Full listing: 1706 4th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $575,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1900
  • Listing Agent: Susan Berger, Evers & Company Real Estate

Modernized Columbia Heights Rowhouse

While this Columbia Heights rowhouse looks pretty traditional from the front, there is a surprise inside: a renovation replaced the back walls with floor-to-ceiling windows, which flood the master bedroom, dining room and kitchen with light. The rest of the house has historic elements like pocket doors and original woodwork around the fireplace, doorways and windows. The lower level has also been turned into a comfortable in-law suite.

  • Full listing: 1338 Meridian Place NW (map)
  • Price: $739,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1909
  • Listing Agent: Tony Hain, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate

Chevy Chase Colonial With a Finished Attic

With four bedrooms, 2,286 square feet and a large lot, this Chevy Chase colonial feels like the kind of home a family could stretch out in. The listing is set behind a fence and a few mature trees, and has a front porch spanning the width of the house. Inside, several sitting areas are spread throughout the main floor, two with fireplaces. Additionally, a finished attic area could be an office, playroom or guestroom.

  • Price: $1.235 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
