A Tudor Near Rock Creek Park

This Tudor has a charming exterior, and a living room that flows into a sunroom, which in turn flows to the backyard. The home hasn’t been updated in a while, so the floors are worn down and the tiling is a bit out of date. However, at some point, the owner (or previous owner) finished the upper and lower levels and created some extra usable spaces, like an attic that could be an office, and a basement with a fireplace.

  • Full Listing: 6416 Luzon Avenue NW (map)
  • Price: $524,500
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1939
  • Listing Agent: Mynor Herrera, Keller Williams Capital Properties

Four-Bedroom With a Renovated Main Floor

The main floor of this four-bedroom has been renovated and is now more open with a new kitchen. While the home also has new windows and new systems, the upper level has been well maintained, for the most part. A little bit dark on the inside, this home will likely need a number of lamps around to brighten things up.

  • Price: $524,999
  • Bedrooms: Four

Detached and Renovated In the Last Year

As with many homes in this section of northwest DC, this listing on Longfellow Street was purchased at a low price nine months ago and then renovated from top to bottom. Though it is close to its neighbors, the home is detached with windows on all sides. The floors, porches and lighting systems have all been refreshed, and the main level has the open layout no common in renovated rowhouses across the city.

  • Full Listing: 908 Longfellow Street NW (map)
  • Price: $549,999
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1920
