In this week’s special edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at three new two-bedroom options in the DC area.

Best New Listings: The Two-Bedroom Edition: Figure 1

Chopped Up in a Columbia Heights Victorian

Many of the DC’s two-bedroom options can be found in rowhouses and Victorians that have been split up into condos. This Columbia Heights listing is one such option. One perk of these homes is that the condo fees tend to be on the lower end of the spectrum: for this unit, monthly fees are at just above $200 a month. The 1,050-square-foot unit has a bay window and an open floor plan, with a renovated kitchen opening up to the dining area and living room.

  • Full listing: 1303 Clifton Street NW, #2 (map)
  • Price: $540,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,050
  • HOA Fees: $203
  • Listing Agent: Richard Prigal, RE/MAX Realty Group

Logan Circle Co-op in a Historic Building

This co-op is in The Hawarden, a mid-sized Logan Circle building that is on the National Register of Historic Places along with its neighbor, The Gladstone. The building went up in 1901 and still has some period details, including an ornate fireplace and a clawfoot bathtub in this 1,350 square-foot listing. The living room sits at the front of the unit, while the kitchen and dining area are on the opposite end of the layout, connected by a long hallway. As a co-op, the monthly fees are on the high side, but include property taxes.

  • Full listing: 1419 R Street NW, #33 (map)
  • Price: $625,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 1,350
  • HOA Fees: $600
  • Listing Agents: Carlos Garcia, Keller Williams Capital Properties

Detached in Takoma Park

Finally, Takoma Park has a few two-bedroom homes on the big, tree-filled lots that the area is known for. This home was built in 1920; the facade looks classically suburban while the interior is quite modern, with a spiral staircase sitting in the center of an open floor plan. The upstairs bedrooms are carpeted and cozy, though one wonders how to move a bed or dresser up the spiral stairs. Of course, perhaps the biggest perk of this option is the massive yard, bordered by mature trees.
