A Hill East Three-Bedroom Moves After a Price Reduction

This two-story Federal semi-detached home just a few blocks from Stadium-Armory Metro offers a lot of living in a compact space. Features like hardwood floors throughout, three upstairs bedrooms and a laundry nook, and a paved patio and surface parking spot in the backyard made the home a great value. The narrow rowhouse was on the market for a little over two weeks and found a buyer just after a small price reduction.

  • Full Listing: 309 16th Street SE (map)
  • Listing Price: $619,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Days on Market: 15

Preserved Details in Dupont Circle

This condo-townhome spent just under a month on the market, but is also a home where time seems to stand still. The home has preserved original details like the center hall staircase and wooden mantels, leaded glass windows and tile work throughout its 3,000 square feet. With four bedrooms, an in-law suite, a large back deck and off-street parking, the new owner is getting a lot of bang for their buck.

  • Full Listing: 1717 P Street NW, Unit A (map)
  • Listing Price: $1.7 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • HOA Fees $101/month
  • Days on Market: 27
  • Listing Agent: Jo Ricks, City Houses
