Stylish Row House in the H Street Corridor

Though many of the rooms are small, the renovation in this three-bedroom highlights the home’s charm and coziness and every inch feels thought-through. The kitchen, in a dusky blue, has details like cookbook nooks and a wide counter that opens up to the dining room. The basement is now a TV-watching room with walls of exposed brick and a ceiling with exposed beams. Finally, we liked the master bedroom, which connects to an enclosed porch that is now being used as an office.

Cleveland Park Victorian With Only Two Previous Owners

Built in 1918, this five-bedroom Victorian has only changed hands once in almost a century. In 2005, the current owners led an extensive renovation that gave the home a breezier, lighter look, an up-to-date kitchen and a bathroom with a soaking tub. The home still retains some of its old-fashioned features, though, like pocket doors separating the kitchen and wainscoting in the dining room. At this price point, you would probably expect perfect finishes and extra rooms, and this house delivers: we loved the enclosed porch, office, and second kitchen attached to the downstairs rec room.

  • Full listing: 3403 Macomb Street NW (map)
  • Price: $2,095,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1918
  • Listing Agent: Claudia Donovan, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

Affordable Four-Bedroom Bungalow in Brookland

All too often, residents who want a family-sized home find themselves priced out of DC proper. This home, however, has four bedrooms, a deep backyard, a Brookland location within blocks of a Metro station, and a price tag under $400,000. Some features include a wide front porch looking onto a quiet residential street and upstairs bedrooms with cool sloping ceilings. While the future owners could freshen up details around the house, the bungalow is ready to move into.

  • Full listing: 1030 Girard Street NE (map)
  • Price: $399,900
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1923
  • Listing Agent: Kymber Lovett-Menkiti, Keller Williams Capital Properties
