Best New Listings: Two Lofts and a Large Lot

by Shilpi Paul

This week in Best New Listings, we found a penthouse loft in a former laundry used by The White House, an industrial one-bedroom on the fringe of Columbia Heights and a home on one of the larger lots in Glover Park.


Two-Bedroom Penthouse at Yale Steam Laundry

This 1,115 square-foot penthouse at Yale Steam Laundry maximizes its location: the living room windows point right at the Capitol and the master bedroom has two walls of windows offering a lofty view above the DC skyline. The story of Yale Steam Laundry is fairly well known. Formerly one of the largest steam laundries in the city, the property was transformed in recent years into luxury lofts and condos. The main building has 16 loft-style condos, a fitness center, billiards room, and a rooftop pool. The second building has approximately 130 units that offer more traditional floorplans.

  • Full listing: 437 New York Ave NW, #1210 (map)
  • Price: $599,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,115
  • Listing Agent: Rachel Valentino, Keller Williams

One-Bedroom Industrial-Style Loft on the Fringe of Columbia Heights

The 38-unit Lamont Street Lofts doesn’t just have an industrial feel — it’s one of the only residential buildings among warehouses near the the intersection of Lamont Street and Georgia Avenue. Designed by Bonstra Haresign Architects in 2004 and completed in ’05, the loft is full of urban, industrial trimmings like concrete walls, barn-door dividers and exposed brick and ductwork. The 839 square-foot one-bedroom unit has a very open, rectangular floor plan that ends in a balcony, and the building is about a 13-minute walk from the center of Columbia Heights.

  • Full listing: 701 Lamont Street NW, #27 (map)
  • Price: $349,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Square Footage: 839
  • Listing Agent: Philip DiRuggiero, Long & Foster


Four-Bedroom Home on One of the Largest Lots in Glover Park

This four-bedroom makes good use of its lot (one of the largest in Glover Park) with a generous backyard and deck. The size in addition to the house’s placement at the end of a row means tons of light floods through the rooms. The home is well suited for a family, with spacious rooms, a high-end kitchen and an au pair suite downstairs. It is also just a five-minute walk to the restaurants and grocery stores along Wisconsin Avenue.

  • Full listing: 2324 Huidekoper Place NW (map)
  • Price: $795,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Four
  • Year Built: 1936
  • Listing Agent: Bonnie Roberts-Burke, Evers & Company

    The Yale Steam penthouse looks amazing.  But at a $600k asking price and $600/month in condo fees, you could afford to buy an $750k rowhouse!  The current owner also purchased this place in 2010 - what’s with the constant turnover in condos?
