Bloomingdale Victorian Near a Community Park

Though this Bloomingdale row house has been renovated, it retains a few old-fashioned features, like a separate dining room and a stately staircase. There are also some nice outdoor spaces, like a second story balcony and a back patio, but perhaps the best part about this home is what is outside its back door — Crispus Attucks Park, the neighborhood park hidden in the alley space between 1st Street NW, North Capitol Street, U Street NW and V Street NW.

  • Full Listing: 5 U Street NW (map)
  • Price: $629,900
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1906
  • Listing Agent: Suzanne DesMarais, Keller Williams

Four-Bedroom in Family-Friendly Shepherd Park

Shepherd Park is a suburban-feeling neighborhood on the northern tip of DC with big houses, a good elementary school, and a cool history of intentional diversity. While this four-bedroom rambler-like home has some dated features, it’s a nicely-sized listing with a huge living room, a sunny den, a two-car garage and a lower level complete with a second kitchen and a sauna. We also are big fans of the large front porch.

  • Full Listing: 7707 13th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $636,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1927
  • Listing Agent: Alexa Goulding, Long & Foster

Arlington Bungalow with Historic Charm

Both the most spacious and the least expensive of our options, this four bedroom home is located not far from Glebe Road and Arlington Boulevard. With a front porch, a back deck and large bedrooms, the house looks like a place where you can spread out a bit, except for the “his and her” offices that appear to be located in adjacent walk-in closets. Gardeners take note: the backyard also has vegetable and fruit trees.
