Logan Circle Condo Designed By The Cairo’s Architect

This two-bedroom condo is in The Iowa, one of several projects designed by Thomas Franklin Schneider at the turn of the 20th century; Schneider also designed The Cairo, the city’s tallest apartment building (perhaps forever, after last night’s ruling by the NCPC). The generous amount of square footage makes for a spacious living room with two sitting areas, a kitchen with room for a family to cook together, and a separate dining area. A terrace looks out onto an inner courtyard.

  • Full Listing: 1325 13th Street NW, #35 (map)
  • Price: $649,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,232
  • HOA Fees: $542
  • Listing Agent: Justin Kitsch, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

Takoma Park Craftsman With Ample Woodwork

Like many craftsman-type homes, this is a good option for buyers who like woodwork. The doors, window frames, staircase, cabinetry and floors are all constructed in pine, giving the house a warm, unified look. We also liked the clawfoot bathtub, and the finished and carpeted basement with a cushy reading nook. Though it’s not spelled out in the listing info, a photo of the back gives the impression that an addition was added to the home at some point, bringing the full square footage to 2,200.

  • Full Listing: 99 Elm Ave, Takoma Park, MD (map)
  • Price: $649,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1920
  • Listing Agent: Margaret Bresler, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Columbia Heights Rowhouse With a Double Deck

While the view just looks into the alley, the double decks on the back of this Columbia Heights rowhouse are shaded, spacious enough for several chairs, and allow the owners to hang charming plants from the canopies. The interior of the home has been renovated, with a semi-open floor plan, a new kitchen, a finished basement, and some built-in shelving in the master bedroom closet. The home was last on the market in 2005, but has been on the market currently for a few months.

  • Full Listing: 1342 Perry Place NW (map)
  • Price: $659,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1911
  • Listing Agent: Denise Champion-Jones, Long & Foster
