Best New Listings: West End, Marshall Heights, 16th Street Heights

by UrbanTurf Staff

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a West End two-bedroom that does not carry the hefty fees normally associated with that neighborhood, a recently-renovated three-bedroom home near Marshall Heights and a four-bedroom in 16th Street Heights fit for all seasons.

1,100 Square-Foot West End Two-Bedroom Bargain

Two-bedroom units in the West End and Foggy Bottom usually have discounted price tags when they hit the market because of their high monthly fees, which makes this condo on 25th Street stand out. Located down the block from Trader Joe’s, the condo fees are just $113 a month, and the pet-friendly unit also has a price per square foot of $476, which is also pretty low for the neighborhood. In addition to being pet-friendly, the 1,100 square-foot listing also has the holy trinity by condo standards — a fireplace, washer/dryer and hardwood floors throughout.

  • Full listing: 1112 25th Street NW, #2 (map)
  • Price: $525,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,103
  • Listing Agent: Leigh Reed, Long & Foster

Three-Bedroom Home in a Rather Unfamilar Section of the City

Located along the edge of Marshall Heights about midway between the Benning Road Metro and the Capital Heights Metro, this three-bedroom home lies in a section of DC that is not familiar to many city residents. The house has been renovated including the installation of central A/C and a newish kitchen (given a facelift in 2006). There are two large bedrooms on the second floor (and one smaller), and the listing comes with off-street parking.

  • Full listing: 4944 East Capitol Street NE (map)
  • Price: $239,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1928
  • Listing Agent: Thomas Faison, RE/MAX Allegiance

16th Street Heights Four-Bedroom For All Seasons

This four-bedroom home sits on a pretty large fenced-in lot near 16th and Crittenden Streets. In addition to the front porch, the home has a sun room on the second floor (with screens and sliding glass doors) that overlooks the backyard. The rooms are not enormous, but they will stay warm when it gets cold without much help from Pepco: the home has double-brick walls that provide better insulation.

  • Full listing: 4705 16th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $609,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1942
  • Listing Agent: Amber Wason, Coldwell Banker

    Not sure about anyone else, but I am tired of the same old granite/stainless package you see. Something a little interesting goes a long, long way. Fireplace is great and I’m always in favor of hardwood floors.

    That first two-bedroom looks like a crazy deal, but the fees almost seem too low. I don't love the fact that I pay $300-some a month for my condo fees, but am happy to know that my building has a lot in reserves as a result. I would worry that the low fees mean that the building doesn't have that much on hand in case of emergency.

    I've always loved the house on 16th St, NW. Been driving by it for years and wondering what it looked like inside. Thanks for posting.

    >holy trinity by condo standards — a fireplace, washer/dryer and hardwood floors throughout I thought that "trinity" was granite, stainless, and hardwoods... maybe that's only on HGTV.
