In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a Dupont Circle condo with house-like qualities, a Mount Pleasant condo on beautiful grounds, and a Kensington Victorian with an Americana trademark.

Dupont Circle Condo with Space for a Grand Piano

This new two-bedroom listing, at the intersection of Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan and the U Street Corridor, has the qualities of a house in the warmth of a converted condo. Surrounded by ample exposed brick, the unit has a large kitchen than opens up to an outdoor area, parking right next to the building and a living room with enough space for a grand piano. The kitchen is particularly attractive and the master bedroom has a creatively organized closet. On the downside, the second bedroom is fairly small.

  • Full listing: 1717 T Street NW #12 (map)
  • Price: $649,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,136
  • Listing Agent: Phyllis Alexander, Long & Foster Real Estate

Mount Pleasant One-Bedroom with a Reasonable Price Tag

The most appealing aspects of this one-bedroom condo are its location in the middle of Mount Pleasant, the beautifully landscaped gardens of the building where it is located, the well-maintained condition of the unit and the relatively low price-per-square-foot. (The walk-in closet and private balcony also help.) The Adams House was built in 1900 and converted into a 13-unit condo building a few decades ago; the building has a bike room and a storage space for every unit.

  • Full listing: 1801 Park Road NW #4 (map)
  • Price: $299,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 750
  • Listing Agent: Kelly Williams, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

White Picket Fence in Kensington

This four-bedroom in Kensington seems like the kind of place where a family could grow for decades; there’s a white picket fence, wraparound porch, big yard with a swing set, grand piano in the living room and two child-sized bedrooms on the third floor with tent-like pitched ceilings. The kitchen is fairly large, with an L-shaped island big enough for a second sink and a handful of bar stools. For the parents, the master bathroom is trimmed with marble, and an office with rustic wainscotting offers a quiet place to work. The home just hit the market for the first time in over a decade.
