Renovated Row House on Capitol Hill

This two-story Victorian looks like it was renovated at some point in recent years, given the opened up floor plan and restored pine flooring. Despite the generally open flow, there is a bit of a demarcation between living and dining areas, and the kitchen is completely separated. Charming details include a brick fireplace, radiators and a couple cool chandeliers. We also liked the backyard, accessible through French doors and landscaped with a pond surrounded by greenery and stone.

Takoma Park Three-Bedroom With a Carpeted Attic

UrbanTurf has long been a fan of homes in Takoma Park. This one has a couple extras, like a sitting room off the master bedroom and a carpeted attic that is described as a playroom/yoga room; there is also an office area overlooking the yard. The three-bedroom home is family-sized, with 2,000-square feet, and the fenced-in grassy backyard looks inviting.

Modern Penthouse on the U Street Corridor

On the higher end of today’s range, you can find a penthouse in The Lacey, a very modern condo building that went up in 2009 above the Florida Avenue Grill. The building is made of concrete, glass and a steel frame, and this unit’s aluminum piping gives it even more of a contemporary edge. The 1,075-square foot unit has two levels connected by a spiral staircase, and the private terrace has nice views into Cardozo High School’s athletic field.
