The Best Open Houses in DC: Logan Circle, Columbia Heights and Capitol Hill

by Mark Wellborn

This weekend’s best open houses include a sunny two-bedroom condo near 16th and P Streets, a large two-bedroom condo in Columbia Heights and a renovated three-bedroom rowhouse in Capitol Hill that comes with its own man cave.

Sunny Two-Bedroom Condo at 16th and Q Streets


1527 16th Street NW, #5 (map)

  • Price: $483,500
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 900
  • Price per SF: $537
  • Year Built: 1939

This two-bedroom condo is located on 16th Street just north of P in one of the first Victorian rowhouses that PN Hoffman renovated back in the mid-1990s. The main attraction is a living room that has a large set of bay windows overlooking 16th Street, a small dining area, a fireplace and a tall set of built-in shelves. The second bedroom is more of a home office, but the master bedroom is large with good storage. The location for this home could not be much better as it is a five-minute walk from Whole Foods and the Dupont Circle Metro. The open house is Sunday, January 10th from 1 to 4pm.

Huge Two-Bedroom Condo in Columbia Heights

  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 1,680
  • Price per SF: $369
  • Year Built: 1912

The eye-catching feature of this Columbia Heights two-bedroom condo is the wide-open main level. The gourmet kitchen, dining area and living room all flow together seamlessly and make use of the floorplan quite well. There are two bedrooms upstairs as well as a study that could serve as a home office. The original price for this listing was $650,000, and its new price tag compares favorably to similar properties in the area. The open house is Sunday, January 10th from 1 to 4pm.

419 7th Street SE (map)

  • Price: $975,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1900

Just about a stone’s throw from Eastern Market, this Capitol Hill rowhouse has been completely renovated and now has a large chef’s kitchen, a landscaped, two-level backyard and patio, and an enormous master suite. The lower level has been converted into a “man cave” with a separate kitchen and living room. Homes this large in this section of Capitol Hill usually fetch over $1 million. The open house is Sunday, January 10th from 12 to 2pm. For the full listing, click here.

    So, ‘man cave’ is the term now used to describe an English Basement apartment without an occupancy permit? 

    Because that’s not what I call a man cave.

    there is no bedroom on the lower level, so no occupancy permit is needed.
