70s Style Rambler Near Potomac

With views of the Congressional Golf Course, this Potomac rambler rambles on for 3,158 square feet. The three-bedroom home, in its updated 70s style, is set on a couple grassy acres, with large windows overlooking a tree-filled backyard. Some retro features, like a stone fireplace and gold trim around the shower, mix with more modern ones, like a renovated kitchen.

Castle-like Tudor in Colonial Village

For luxury buyers who want a more classical look, this Tudor in Colonial Village resembles a stately manor home (the grand piano and grandfather clock keep the feeling going on the interior). With six bedrooms and a castle feel, the listing seems almost Downton Abbey-big. We liked the wood paneled office, the screened-in porch, the landscaped patio, and the sunken pool.

  • Price: $1.5 million
  • Bedrooms: Six
  • Bathrooms: Four
  • Year Built: 1941

Two-Story Penthouse in Logan Circle

This penthouse right at 14th and P Streets NW may cost much more than other two-bedroom condos in the neighborhood, but it has something that the others don’t: an 1,100-square foot roof terrace. In addition to this amenity, the unit, in the Cooper Lewis, a condo building that went up in 2006, is filled with other high-end amenities including a built-in sound system. There is also a loft space in addition to the two bedrooms.

Update: This home went under contract shortly before we featured it.

  • Full Listing: 1413 P Street NW #603 (map)
  • Price: $1,499,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 2006
