This two-bedroom condo in Kalorama just hit the market after undergoing a $220K renovation. (The owner is an architect.) There are cherry hardwood floors and exposed brick throughout the main level and the ceilings are nine-feet tall in most places. The kitchen and bathrooms are brand new and the property comes with a parking space and access to a community roof deck. The condo fees are high but include all utilities, central A/C and cable.

Three-Bedroom Cape Cod in Bethesda

This three-bedroom, two-bath brick Cape Cod in the Crestview section of Bethesda is a great cottage for a small family.

    It’s actually in Park View, not Petworth, though it’s very close to the Petworth metro.

  1. Tiffany said at 6:57 pm on Thursday March 5, 2009:

    What is the neighborhood in Park View like?  I’m quasi-familiar with Columbia Heights, but not much north of there.

    I’ve been tempted to look at houses around there, but have yet to based on my ignorance of the area.

  1. Mark Wellborn said at 7:17 pm on Thursday March 5, 2009:

    Hey Tiffany,

    We haven’t profiled Park View yet, but we have done a write-up about Petworth, which is just to the north of the neighborhood.
