by Lark Turner

In this week’s Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at two modern renovations of District rowhouses and a historic home in Old Town.


Best New Listings: East Capitol Street, A Shaw Loft and Teddy Roosevelt: Figure 1

A Spacious Rowhouse Near Lincoln Park

This rowhouse facing the historic car barn on East Capitol Street has a number of things going for it, but our favorite aspect is the landscaped patio/backyard that leads to a one-car garage. Inside is an updated kitchen matched with many of the home’s original historic details intact, including wood moulding and floors. The bedrooms on the second level are roomy, and the master bathroom looks newly renovated. Look for this one to go above the asking price.

Lofty Living in a Shaw Rowhouse

This two-bedroom unit in a converted rowhouse is about the closest thing to a true loft that a buyer will find in DC. The hardwood floors, exposed brick, high-ceilinged living space and big windows help achieve the open, loft-like feel. Upstairs are two bedrooms with a spacious master. The property has sole access to the roof deck, storage space in the basement and parking out back.

The Home of Teddy Roosevelt’s Barber

This historic colonial house is in the heart of Old Town Alexandria and sits within easy walking distance to the neighborhood’s shops and restaurants. The home is full of historic details, from the chair moulding, fireplace and built-ins in the dining room to the low-ceilinged top floor. Out back there’s a large garden, a patio and a small shed. Its big claim to fame? It was once home to Teddy Roosevelt’s barber, William Dulaney.
