by Lark Turner

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a Takoma cottage, a Chevy Chase home with a great backyard and a corner store turned home on Capitol Hill.


Best New Listings: The Perfect Backyard in Chevy Chase DC: Figure 1

A Former Corner Store on Capitol Hill

This home on Capitol Hill was once Johnston’s Corner Market, meaning it’s brighter and accommodates a more open layout than the typical Capitol Hill rowhouse. The market’s old wooden meat locker has been converted into a wet bar. The property could use some cosmetic work in places, but the brick arches and other architectural details give it an almost loft-like feel, a rarity in D.C. We previously took a look at the home in 2012, when it last sold.

  • Price: $799,000

A Takoma Cottage

While a little rough around the edges, this 1920s Takoma cottage has a great layout and original features like pine trim throughout the ground floor. There’s an unfinished basement that could provide extra living space and a deep backyard. For under $500,000, it is a good option for those looking at two-bedrooms in the city.

  • Price: $489,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1923

The Perfect Backyard in Chevy Chase DC

This 1928 Sears catalog home has been carefully renovated throughout, but this autumn, one of its selling points will be outside: the large, landscaped backyard that has ample room for a dining area and a fire pit. Inside, there is an eat-in kitchen with French doors leading to a screened-in porch, along with a dining room and a living room replete with built-ins. There’s an attached garage in the front of the house, and the home is about a 20-minute walk from the Friendship Heights Metro and about a block off of Connecticut Avenue NW.

  • Full Listing: 3604 Morrison Street NW (map)
  • Price: $849,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1928
  • Listing Agent: Claudia Donovan, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
