In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a Capitol Hill row house shrouded in woodwork, a condo alternative in Georgetown, and a brightly colored Victorian in Takoma Park.
Warm Wood on Capitol Hill
The most notable feature of this Captiol Hill home is the warm, oak-y wood that seems to be everywhere: besides the hardwood floors, cabinets, built-in benches, and staircases, the same medium shade can be found around windows, doorways and bathtubs. The resulting effect is cozy and warm. Otherwise, this well-maintained row house has a fireplace, an oversized bathtub and a finished basement with a full kitchen that could have some income potential.

A Condo Alternative in Georgetown
Framed as a condo alternative, this two-bedroom Georgetown row house is skinny and tight. The living and dining rooms are at the back of the house, and are surrounded in exposed brick. An extensive built-in storage system surrounds the bed in the master bedroom, obviating the need for too much furniture. UrbanTurf particularly liked the back patio, which is essentially an outdoor dining room complete with a pergola.

Brightly Colored Victorian in Takoma Park
Though Takoma Park is partially known for its bungalows, the neighborhood is also full of Victorians in a wide array of colors that have fireplaces, substantial staircases and a general stately feel. This one has been painted in pretty colors inside and out, and boasts a wide front porch. The most striking room is the master bedroom, which looks like it takes up most of the top floor. The bed fits between a crevice of sharply angled walls, and the room is full of nooks.

- Price: $759,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 2.5
