This week’s Best New Listings include a former UrbanTurf Best Listing of the Year and two turn-of-the-century transformations.
A Corner Rowhouse Near H Street with Curb Appeal
Located just north of the H Street Corridor, this two-story Federal-style corner rowhouse has plenty of curb appeal. A stone-paved path to the front door also bends along the side of the house, leading to a large patio area in the spacious, landscaped side-yard. The yard also has direct access to the sleek new kitchen, which overlooks the living area. Skylights brighten up the stair landing and both bedrooms, each of which also has an en-suite bathroom.

- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Square Feet: 1,020
- Year Built: 1900

Classic Architecture and a Carriage House Just Below U Street
This Victorian-style home near T Street NW and Vermont Avenue is a true-to-period restoration, where a traditional layout boasts painstakingly restored original finishes throughout, from the intricate carved doorknobs and ornate wood molding and mantels, to sconces, chandeliers and sliding pocket doors. The unique circular bay adds extra living space across every floor, including the basement in-law suite. A two-story carriage house currently functions as a garage with upper-level storage, although new zoning rules permitting accessory dwellings might leave some room for repurposing the upper floor.

A Best Listing in a Hidden Place
UrbanTurf christened this house one our favorite of the year back in 2010. At the time, the hidden gem on 12th Place sold for $22,000 above the asking price of $485,000; six years later, it’s on the market for nearly $200,000 more. A brick fireplace in the living room gives way to an exposed brick wall that continues through to the painted dining nook. The master bedroom also has an exposed brick wall and a loft-like storage area. However, the second bedroom is a stand-out, playing with space with its window cut-outs and attached office area. And, of course, the exterior of the home is still bright yellow.
