Van Ness Co-op in a Spanish Revival-Style Building

This third-floor unit is in the classy Ponce de Leon co-op on Connecticut Avenue, in between the Van Ness metro station and Politics and Prose bookstore. The building was designed in the Spanish Revival style, which explains the exotic name. The two-bedroom makes good use of the space, with an eat-in kitchen in addition to a dining room and a bright sunroom off of the living room. While the listing spreads out over 1,486 square feet, the monthly co-op fees are on the high side.

  • Full Listing: 4514 Connecticut Avenue NW #308 (map)
  • Price: $525,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 1,486
  • Listing Agent: Jay Murphy, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Eckington Victorian Ready for a Renovation

While this Eckington four-bedroom is in livable condition, a renovation could turn it into a beautiful family home. Pocket doors, an elegant staircase and a claw foot bathtub offer hints at what used to be. New floors, kitchen, bathrooms and a really good scrubbing would do a lot to bring the house back to life, but this property is not for a buyer who isn’t looking for a bit of a project.

  • Full Listing: 14 R Street NE (map)
  • Price: $515,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 2,080
  • Listing Agent: Shirley Lokeman, Long and Foster Real Estate
