Best New Listings: The Hip Corridors and a Tenant-Ready Rowhouse

by Shilpi Paul

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at a condo near the 14th Street corridor, a rowhouse near the H Street Corridor, and a Glover Park home with an income-producing lower level.

Best New Listings: The Hip Corridors and a Tenant-Ready Rowhouse: Figure 1

Logan Circle Condo In a Renovated Rowhouse

This T Street one-bedroom is in a large rowhouse that was divided into separate units, and sits about a half block away from the bustling 14th Street Corridor. The renovation was fairly straightforward, and the unit doesn’t have too many frills: the kitchen is plain, though with granite countertops and nice appliances, the walls are unadorned with moldings, and the bedroom has rough carpeting. The living room looks like a cozy space, with its rounded bay window and brick fireplace.

  • Full listing: 1421 T Street NW, #5 (map)
  • Price: $399,900
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 669
  • HOA Fees: $353
  • Listing Agent: June Gardner, Evers & Company Real Estate

H Street Corridor Rowhouse With a Private Garden and Open Third Story

One of the coolest things about this three-bedroom south of the H Street Corridor is the third story: the stairs open up to a wide area that is currently being used as an office and family room. The bright windows and open space make it a maleable space that could be turned into a playroom, TV-watching area, or studio. We also liked the fenced-in patio in the back, which is edged by trees and shrubbery. A garage is included.

  • Full listing: 633 4th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $899,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1905
  • Listing Agent: Shelley Gold, Long & Foster Real Estate

Glover Park Rowhouse With a Rental Unit (and a Tenant)

Homes that have a rental unit to help offset the mortgage are some of the most attractive pieces of real estate to buyers these days. This Glover Park home has that, with an added convenience: the current tenant would be happy to stay on with the new owners, so there would be no need to interview potential renters, check credit reports and risk letting the unit remain vacant. The house itself is handsome, with bold paint choices, many windows, and attractive design elements on the walls. Our favorite room is the kitchen, which is connected to a smaller sitting area at the back of the house: the black and white checkerboard floor is highlighted by black and white tiles, counters, cabinets, and a spiral staircase that leads to the second story. A tin ceiling completes the look.

  • Full listing: 3756 Benton Street NW (map)
  • Price: $779,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1929
  • Listing Agent: Dillon Clark, RE/MAX Allegiance
