It's that time of year again when UrbanTurf reflects on some of the DC area's most interesting real estate topics from the last 12 months. This week, we refresh your memory on some of the best, most intriguing and most peculiar things we came across throughout 2023. Enjoy.


For those of us who aren’t pulling in the money for a multi-million dollar house, UrbanTurf sorted through the hundreds of more reasonably-priced listings featured on the site this year to come up with our favorite. The winner: a cozy one-story cottage in Silver Spring. 

Silver Spring has become one of the most popular locales for buyers looking for a relatively affordable single-family home. And this listing is prime example of that property type. 

With a carefully curated garden and a warm living space, the three-bedroom home along Dennis Avenue spent just three days on the market in May before selling at an $80,000 premium. A fireplace and white wood ceiling panels are found in the main room, and the corner dining room features a serving window connected to the kitchen and a back door leading to the large wood patio. With a built-in study, bookshelves and new carpet, the primary bedroom is perfect for multitasking. At nearly 1,500 square feet, the home is also quite spacious for its approximately $660,000 purchase price.
