A Five-Bed Kent Bungalow on a Hill

This five-bedroom, three-bath house in Kent is set on a forested hill, and there’s a welcoming front porch where you can survey your domain. Inside it’s brighter and more modern than many bungalows, with white trim and exterior French doors to let more light in. The updated kitchen leads out onto a back deck facing a large yard. The bathrooms have been updated, but the basement is unfinished.

  • Price: $1,175,000

A Townhouse in Alexandria’s Ford’s Landing

This townhouse in Ford’s Landing, built by EYA on the site of an old Ford plant in the late ’90s, has a fairly traditional layout. The shared living space includes a formal living room, a study or informal living room, a dining room space that’s open to the living area and an eat-in kitchen. The building has an attached two-car garage, as well as a small rear balcony.

A Rowhouse Just Off Lincoln Park on The Hill

This red-brick Capitol Hill rowhouse is just off of Lincoln Park and not far from Eastern Market and the H Street Corridor. The home’s renovation looks to have been nicely done, with coffered ceilings, a big kitchen open to the living space, a finished basement with an in-law suite and kitchenette and updated bathrooms (though we wish the bathrooms had a little more variety between them). There’s a balcony off one bedroom and a small back deck facing a rear parking pad.

  • Full Listing: 139 13th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $1,249,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1911
