The Best Open Houses in the DC Area this Weekend

by Mark Wellborn

This weekend’s best open houses include a four-bedroom Tudor in AU Park, a three-bedroom row house on the edge of Capitol Hill and a three-bedroom home in Alexandria with an over-sized great room.

Four-Bedroom Tudor in AU Park


4313 Brandywine Street NW (see map here)

  • Price: $849,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1925

This four-bedroom Tudor in AU Park has been on the market for about a week. Remodeled in 2007, the entire front yard of the house is a garden split by a stone walkway. When you enter the home, you walk into the living room that leads into a small dining area, and on to a remodeled kitchen. Off the kitchen is a sun room, that opens up to a large back deck. The master bedroom (pictured above) has a layout that some will take issue with, but we like. It is set up with the bed area on one side and a small sitting area on the other that has a nice skylight. The open house is Sunday 7/26 from 1 to 4pm. For the full listing, click here.

Three-Bedroom Row House on the Edge of Capitol Hill


216 16th Street SE (see map here)

  • Price: $569,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Footage: 1,675
  • Price per SF: $340
  • Year Built: 1925

With its first open house this Sunday from 2 to 4pm, this recently renovated three-bedroom on the edge of Capitol Hill will have its fair share of visitors. The entire first floor has been redone, and now offers a very open floorplan and kitchen/dining room combo. All three bedrooms are on the second floor and the lower level has been finished and could serve as an additional bedroom. For the full listing, click here.

Three-Bedroom Home in Alexandria with Over-Sized Great Room


106 East Linden Street, Alexandria, VA 22301 (see map here)

  • Price: $669,500
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Square Footage: 1,520
  • Price per SF: $440
  • Year Built: 1918

The listing description for this three-bedroom home in the Rosemont section of Alexandria notes that the property is best described as a home with “charm and character.” It proves that point by listing the various all-American fatures that the home offers: front porch swing, landscaped fenced-in back yard and hardwood floors throughout. The addition of a huge great room (see above) with vaulted ceilings and skylights complements the rest of the home well. The property is just an eight-minute walk to the Braddock Road Metro. It will be open this Sunday from 1 to 4pm. For the full listing, click here.
