A Week for a Rowhouse Near Lincoln Park

We predicted that this rowhouse, which faces the historic car barn on East Capitol Street, would go above asking. We don’t know the sold price yet, but it certainly flew off the market. Among its best features: the landscaped patio and backyard and the one-car garage. Inside, many of the home’s original historic details are intact, including wood moulding and floors. The bedrooms on the second level are roomy, and the master bathroom looks newly renovated.

  • Full Listing: 1429 E Capitol Street NE (map)
  • Price: $799,000
  • Days on Market: 7
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1914
  • Listing Agent: Christal Goetz, Dwell Residential

The Same for a Shaw Loft

This two-bedroom unit in a converted rowhouse was offered for sale and under contract on the same dates as the Capitol Hill rowhouse above. The listing is about the closest thing to a true loft that a buyer will find in DC, which may help explain its quick exit from the market. The hardwood floors, exposed brick, high-ceilinged living space and big windows help achieve the open, loft-like feel. Upstairs are two bedrooms with a spacious master. The property has sole access to the roof deck, storage space in the basement and parking out back.

  • Full Listing: 1523 3rd Street NW, #2 (map)
  • Price: $699,900
  • HOA Fee: $200/month
  • Days on Market: 7
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
