The Best Open Houses in the DC Area this Weekend

by Mark Wellborn

This weekend’s best open houses include a two-bedroom condo in Shaw with a $45K price reduction, the lowest-priced two-bedroom, two-bath condo in Dupont Circle and a four-bedroom colonial in Silver Spring.

Two-Bedroom Condo in Shaw With $45K Price Reduction


1543 6th Street NW, #101 (see map here)

  • Price: $399,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Condo Fees: $150/month
  • Year Built: 1912

We have it on good authority that this two-bedroom, two-bath condo in Shaw is going to have a crowded open house this weekend. The 1,000 square-foot unit was completely remodeled in 2005, but still has the original pine floors throughout and exposed brick, but also new recessed lighting and a built-in bar and pantry in the kitchen. A dining area provides ample space for meals, and the master bedroom opens up to a balcony while the second bedroom has enough space for a queen-size bed, desk and a bookcase. Originally priced at $445,000, this unit is not going to be on the market very long at its current price. The open house is Sunday 8/2 from 2 to 4pm. For the full listing, click here.

Lowest Priced Two-Bedroom, Two-Bath Condo in Dupont Circle


1740 18th Street NW, Unit T-5 (see map here)

  • Price: $449,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 846
  • Price per SF: $531
  • Condo Fees: $317

Currently the lowest priced two-bedroom, two-bath condo in Dupont Circle (as determined by MLS), this unit is located in The Hampton, a recently-renovated boutique condo building on 18th Street. The open kitchen/living room/dining area provides good space for entertaining, and the king-sized master suite has a full bath and walk-in closet. The property is just a five-minute walk from the Dupont Circle Metro stop on the Red Line. The listing price was recently reduced by $10K, and the open house is Sunday from 2-4pm. For the full listing, click here.

Four-Bedroom Colonial in Silver Spring


8011 Piney Branch Road, Silver Spring, MD (see map here)

  • Price: $479,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 6,205
  • Year Built: 1992

This four-bedroom colonial in the Silver Spring/Takoma Park area is a good option for anyone that is tired of living in DC, but still wants easy access to the city. Just a few blocks from the Takoma Park Metro on the Red Line, the home has a great kitchen and living room space and three good-sized bedrooms (the fourth is rather small). The property also has a great back deck. The open house is Sunday (8/2) from 1 to 4pm. For the full listing, click here.

    I’ve toured 1543 6th Street NW, #101, and I can vouch that this unit is simply gorgeous.  Everything is up-to-date and well thought out.  We ended up not bidding on it because I don’t feel like that part of Shaw is a good place to raise small children.  If that’s not an issue for you, though, then this is a pretty good deal.

    I have been looking for a two-bedroom condo in Dupont and Logan Circle for the past two months, and admit that that is a very good price for a two-bedroom, two-bath.

    We looked at this condo too.  It’s beautiful but the neighborhood is sketch.  Great price though.
