Best New Listings: Three Homes, Three Different Lifestyles

by Lark Turner

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at three houses offering different lifestyles: One in the heart of the city, one on the Hill and a third in Takoma Park.


An Old Home with a Modern Interior Surrounded by the City

This four-bedroom Victorian near the Foggy Bottom Metro sits sandwiched between two much larger and more modern neighbors on L Street NW. Though the exterior hearkens back to a very different L Street, inside the home has been remodeled from top to bottom. A fireplace serves as the centerpiece of the living room and kitchen, and the master bedroom has a very casual looking sitting area. The coolest part of the home may be the deep patio in back that wouldn’t look out of place in Manhattan. Though the price is on the high side, there’s a sweetener; the lower level is ready for renters.

  • Full Listing: 2150 L Street NW (map)
  • Price: $1,995,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1900
  • Listing Agent: Jeffrey Wilson, Washington Fine Properties


A Two-Bedroom Rowhouse on Southeast Capitol Hill

Another Capitol Hill rowhouse makes it into Best New Listings this week. This one stands out for its homey interior, including the oft-used fireplace in the cozy living room. The kitchen is small, but has updated appliances and leads out onto a back patio with room for a dining set and a grill. The basement is unfinished, but there is a nice looking patio out back.

  • Full Listing: 403 Kentucky Avenue SE (map)
  • Price: $595,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1905
  • Listing Agent: John Smith, Prudential PenFed Realty


A Takoma Park Craftsman with a Big Backyard

It’s hard to deny the allure of this yellow Takoma Park craftsman, which sits on a lot with a matching yellow shed and large trees. The house has been redone with attention to historic details, like the main bathrooms’ black-and-white tiled floor and footed tub. The basement is finished and the kitchen has been redone. The only con? The home has just one full bathroom, and some of the bedrooms look cramped. There’s always that yard, though…
