A Shell With Potential in Truxton Circle

If you were intrigued by our recent profile on Truxton Circle, you might be interested in this address on the eastern end of that neighborhood. However, you’ll have to be ready to work. The four-bedroom needs a full renovation, and weekend warrior home buyers might be turned off by the fact that the agent suggests that its best use may be a condo conversion. It must look pretty intimidating: the property has been on the market for several months and has dropped in price from $450,000 to $400,000.

  • Full Listing: 29 Florida Avenue NE (map)
  • Price: $400,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1905
  • Listing Agent: James Downing, Darjas,LLC

One-Bedroom Condo One Block From Dupont Circle

This one-bedroom is in Imperial House, a high-rise condo about a block north of Dupont Circle. The building gets good reviews and is well maintained, and this unit has a very hotel-esque vibe. The muted neutrals are soothing, the lights are recessed, and even the windows look like they belong in a Marriott. A gut renovation brought in the luxury elements that can be seen in the kitchen, bathroom, flooring and closet system.

  • Full Listing: 1601 18th Street NW, #403 (map)
  • Price: $399,900
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 658

A Bright Cleveland Park Co-op

This two-bedroom co-op sits in a prewar Cleveland Park building with cool details like arched doorways and a nicely tiled bathroom. The kitchen and floors are a bit dated, but could be updated. A narrow dining room leads to an even narrower kitchen, but strategically placed built-in cabinets help avoid it feeling to cramped. With 900 square feet, the home is also reasonably sized with fairly good-sized bedrooms. The building is located on a quiet street, just behind the Washington International School.

  • Full Listing: 2802 Devonshire Place NW, #205 (map)
  • Price: $399,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1939
  • Listing Agent: Mary Addison, Washington Fine Properties
