Capitol Hill Victorian Not Far From Congress and Eastern Market

Unlike other Victorians on the Hill, the front door of this listing opens to the ground level, which has a den and laundry area floored with Mexican tile. From there, interior stairs take you up to the main living space, a much cozier story with hardwood floors, a renovated kitchen that opens up to a private backyard, and a more formal living room. The top level has two sunny bedrooms and a large bathroom, and there is long, brick patio and garden area in the back of the home.

  • Full Listing: 332 E Street SE (map)
  • Price: $749,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1870

Columbia Heights Three-Bedroom With A Private Terrace

This unit is in Girard Crossing, a condo conversion that delivered back in 2007. The main living area has a long, open floor plan and with generous square footage — 1,750 — the openness feels expansive. The master bedroom is also large, with a sitting area and doors that lead out to perhaps the best feature of the home: a private terrace. With benching along all sides and views of the row houses tucked together, the space seems like it would be well-loved. Current owners have outfitted it with a pretty outdoor rug and cushy furniture.

  • Full Listing: 1326 Girard Street NW, #3 (map)
  • Price: $749,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,750
  • Condo Fees: $206/month
  • Listing Agent: Andrew Riguzzi, DCRE

Deceptively Small Facade in Kensington

This suburban Maryland home has a deceptively small facade; the layout of the home goes much farther back than one would expect, and all three levels are finished and usable. The main floor has a living room, kitchen, separate dining room and a large family room that opens to the patio, as well as a couple bedrooms. The top floor was renovated into one very long room, currently used as a bedroom and a sitting area, while the lower level has a TV-watching room and an office.
