Restored Bloomingdale Victorian with a Rental Unit

This five-bedroom Bloomingdale listing sits just north of the neighborhood’s bars and restaurants, and a few blocks south of the McMillan Reservoir. It underwent a full restoration in recent years, and many original features, like a stained-glass transom, carved ceramic tile in the vestibule, original pine floors, mantels around three fireplaces, and six pocket doors, remain. A well-designed rental unit in the basement will help with the mortgage, and an attic offers some storage space. The house comes with two parking spaces.

  • Full listing: 2010 1st Street NW (map)
  • Price: $759,900
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1906
  • Listing Agent: Suzanne DesMarais, Keller Williams

An Office, an Apartment and a Playhouse in Bethesda

At some point during its 100+-year history, this Bethesda Victorian was expanded and now has almost 4,000 square feet of interior space. The main part of the first level has a formal living room, dining room, study and a large family room; the rest of the floor is dedicated to a professional-looking office area with two rooms that could be used by the new owners as the master suite. The wraparound porch is spacious enough for a swing and a dining area, and looks out onto the property’s 16,000 square-foot lot. One section of the house is also ready to be rented out as an apartment, with a full kitchen. The last, but perhaps coolest, addition is a playhouse in the backyard.

Newly Renovated in Truxton Circle

Truxton Circle, the small neighborhood east of Shaw and south of Bloomingdale, is starting to catch up with its rapidly developing neighbors, and this row house is indicative of that trend. The five-bedroom has been renovated with Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors and a butcher block in the kitchen, and has a semi-open floor plan. The appliances and fixtures are high quality, but the style choices are a little unusual; warm wooden trim seems to be the only accent in the house and borders all the windows, the refrigerator, some bathroom mirrors and closets. The back patio feels private, and the house comes with two off-street parking spaces.

  • Full listing: 118 Bates Street NW (map)
  • Price: $592,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1924
  • Listing Agent: Sina Mollaan, W.C. & A.N. Miller
