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 Warner Street, a one-block stretch in Shaw.
Warner Street (map) is a remarkably quiet two-way street near the busy intersection of Rhode Island and New Jersey avenues, and is dominated by Victorian and federal-style rowhouses, most of which appear to have been built around 1900.
The homes are primarily two bedroom, two-baths, with the exception of a three-bedroom, three-bathroom pop-up on the block that sold in May for $685,000. Most of the block’s homes seem to fall in the $600,000s — a two-bed, three-bath home on the block sold last summer for about $600,000, and a two-bed, two-bath home sold in May for $675,000.
The homes are more set back and have larger gardens than many narrower one-block streets we’ve looked at in Hidden Places. That means homeowners get a little more chance to express themselves, and many have risen to the challenge. One homeowner clad the staircase leading up to their entry entirely in scraps of marble.
Beyond its charm, the best part of Warner Street may be its location near several metros and some of DC’s most desirable neighborhoods.
