Contemporary Two-Bedroom Condo in Lanier Heights

This two-bedroom condo is in Lanier Heights, the surprisingly quiet neighborhood nestled between Mount Pleasant and Adams Morgan that is very close to the action in both neighborhoods, but gets hardly any thru traffic due to its location. The unit is spread out over two floors with two bedrooms upstairs and a bright living room and small galley kitchen downstairs. Built in 1994, the architecture is pretty modern and residents have access to a shared patio and garage parking.

Bloomingdale Two-Bedroom Renovated By Someone With Particular Taste

In 2008, this 1,400 square-foot Bloomingdale two-bedroom was renovated by someone with very particular tastes; what the listing describes as “European-style” means a built-in espresso maker in the kitchen, body jets in the shower, and white textured moldings, brick and tile everywhere. The unit sits on the lower two levels of a row house, and comes with parking and an installed security system. It has been jumping on and off the market since last October.
