Best New Listings: U Street Corridor, Dupont Circle and Takoma Park

by Mark Wellborn

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we feature a large two-bedroom in the U Street Corridor with 18-foot windows, a Dupont Circle condo with amenities necessary to live in the neighborhood and a renovated three-bedroom in Takoma Park.

Large Two-Bedroom Condo in the U Street Corridor With 18-Foot Windows


The two-level, two-bedroom condo is part of The Visio, a seven-unit condo development in the U Street Corridor. The most striking thing about this unit are the 20-foot ceilings and the 18-foot walls of glass in the living room that give the unit an enormous amount of natural light. At 1,300 square feet, the unit has a lot of space and both bedrooms are very good-sized. The condo has additional storage space and also comes with a parking space. For the full listing, click here.

  • Price: $699,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,300

Dupont Circle Condo With Necessary Amenities for the Neighborhood


Located on P Street between 17th and 18th, this two-bedroom condo offers a number of crucial amenities for buyers that have their eyes set on Dupont Circle. The unit is in a beaux-arts row house with a large living area, marble fireplace, a balcony overlooking P Street, an in-unit washer/dryer and a kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances. It seems a little expensive at $729K, but it compares favorably to other two-bedrooms in the area when you factor in the included parking space, and that it is just a block from Dupont Circle. For the full listing, click here.

  • Price: $729,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,100

Three-Bedroom Renovated Home in Takoma Park


For those that like the Silver Spring and Takoma Park sections of Maryland, this renovated three-bedroom home could be a good option. The house has about 1,600 square feet of living space and at $318 a square foot it is a good deal for a home that is nearly all-new construction. The listing description also notes that the seller will provide a landscaping budget for the backyard “based on owner preference.” For the full listing, click here.

    If the Dupont listing compares favorably to two other units in the area, how can it be considered too expensive? Given that it has a parking space and a lot of nice features I think that $/sqft is not out of the ordinary for a property like this in the area.

    I wouldn’t consider those appliances top of the line, though.  The stove is electric, not gas and look like they’re at least a few years old and are not even stainless.

    What is with the ridiculously high HOA fee on that unit? $453/month in a rowhouse?
