A Corner Rowhouse Near H Street with Curb Appeal

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.

  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 4.5

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.

  • Full Listing: 2255 12th Place NW (map)
  • Price: $699,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Feet: 1,090
  • Listing Agent: Jennifer Myers, Dwell Residential
