A Kalorama Condo with a Balcony and Plenty of Updates

Given the price and layout of this Kalorama condo, we didn’t see it lasting on the market much beyond the weekend it was listed. It did, but was off the market after five days. There are two nicely-sized bedrooms sharing one bath, and the large combined living and dining room has a wall of built-in bookcases that add character to the space. The unit has a charming balcony that wraps around the side of the building, as well as an assigned parking space.

An 1806 Capitol Hill Rowhouse

This cottage-like home was built in 1806, and it’s wider than the typical Capitol Hill rowhouse. Improvements have been added over time that make the interior pop. Inside, the layout also differs from the traditional set-up of a similar house on the Hill. There’s a separate living room with a fireplace on the first floor, with a combined kitchen-and-dining room in the back leading onto the patio. Upstairs are two generous bedrooms and a laundry room. It found a buyer in just under a week.
