3803 Legation Street NW

In Multiple Bids, UrbanTurf showcases homes that we think will attract the attention of several potential buyers.

This Chevy Chase colonial is a solid brick home with a cute front yard that is moderately priced (for where it is located) at $463 per square foot. While none of those details make the listing particularly special, there are a few things that make us believe that house hunters will be fighting over it.

First, is the in-law suite with a kitchenette and several rooms, which may be able to bring in rental income. Next, there is a brick patio with a built-in grill that leads out to a two-car garage with storage on the second level.

Most impressively to us, the owners have built something that may make the residents feel like they live in a spa: a sauna. More details and photos below.

    The coolest thing about this is the text in the ad. "Walk to everything" and "Metro!" I don't think walkability was advertised in upper NW homes even 5 years ago. Thoughts?

    No it likely wasn't, and awesome to see that it now is. This home is about a 12-minute walk to the Red Line and a 4-minute walk to the bus, which is pretty good by Chevy Chase DC standards.
