Condo in South Adams Morgan, or “SoMo”

This condo is located in the area south of Adams Morgan and north of Dupont Circle, which some are trying to stick with the dubious nickname “SoMo.” It is also steps from UrbanTurf headquarters. Needless to say, we think this location is quite great, and this two-bedroom is in a classy building, and has a renovated kitchen, hardwood floors and washer/dryer.

2005 Renovation in Petworth With an In-Law Suite

This rowhouse was renovated in 2005, at the height of the open-floor-plan, gut-job renovation trend. The main floor is completely open, with a kitchen at the back. The master bedroom also has an opened-up ceiling, bringing in a bit more light. A finished basement with a second kitchen offers a potential in-law suite. The best thing about the home is its placement on the end of a row, which means it has quite a few more windows than a typical rowhouse.

  • Full Listing: 707 Ingraham Street NW (map)
  • Price: $525,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1931
  • Listing Agent: Erich Cabe, Coldwell Banker

Private Rooftop in Capitol Hill’s Carry Lofts

Longtime readers of UrbanTurf may remember Carry Lofts, the boutique project we wrote about back in 2009 that honors Albert Carry, the German immigrant who brought beer and ice cream to the Hill. And if you like stairs, vertical space and rooftop decks, this condo may appeal to you. The two-bedroom unit has only had one other owner, and notable features include 18’ ceilings, an open floor plan, and a sizable private deck.

  • Full Listing: 257 15th Street SE, Unit D (map)
  • Price: $537,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,026
  • Listing Agent: David Mayhood, The Mayhood Company
