In Hidden Places, UrbanTurf takes a look at some of the charming but lesser-known one- and two-block streets in the District. This week, we check out Dent Place NW, a two-block stretch of eclectic houses in Georgetown.
Dent Place (map) sits between 33rd and 35th Streets NW, north of Q Street and south of Reservoir Road. Its homes are a mix of architecture from just about every era, from Victorians to federal-style rowhouses to clearly modern interpretations of rowhouses. There’s also a corner store and a firehouse estimated to have opened around 1900.
Prices around here are what you’d expect in Georgetown. One of Dent’s more historic homes, a four-bedroom built in 1910, recently went under contract. The asking price: $1.4 million.
There are also several smaller condo buildings on Dent, most built in a traditional red-brick style. One newer building that looks like a condo at first glance, seen below, turns out to be a 1941 single-family home with six bedrooms and 4.5 baths. It last sold in September 2008 for $2.65 million.
There’s another very modern interpretation along Dent: a three-bed, 3.5-bath townhouse. It was built in 1968, and you can tell from the funky exterior.
Some of the homes are the sort of thing you’d mostly find in northwest DC.
But in one stretch full of traditional Victorian rowhouses, a visitor could be almost anywhere in the District.
