End-of-a-Row Victorian

This price point on Capitol Hill seems to pull up three and four-bedroom rowhouses that are move-in ready or need a little TLC. Our first option is located a few blocks to the northeast of Stanton Park, close to the action on the H Street Corridor. The lower level has been finished, and has a bedroom, bathroom and laundry, but no kitchen or separate entrance. The grassy backyard feels almost suburban, but the new owners may eventually want to update the kitchen.

  • Full Listing: 717 E Street NE (map)
  • Price: $849,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1900
  • Listing Agent: Jeanne Harrison, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Historic with Copper Accents

Our next option is about one block closer to Stanton Park. This home has retained many historic details, like woodwork and hardwood floors, and has an updated kitchen with a copper backsplash. The lower level has been nicely finished, with hardwood floors, a large kitchen, and a carpeted bedroom. It is smaller than the option above, but also a little more polished.

  • Full Listing: 663 Maryland Avenue NE (map)
  • Price: $829,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1911
  • Listing Agent: Peter Lane, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

An Open Floor Plan Near H Street

Of the three choices, this rowhouse appears to be the most renovated option. The main floor is quite open, though the kitchen is around the corner and not visible from the living room. There is a second sitting area behind the kitchen, at the back of the house. The lower level is a legally rentable unit, with a separate entrance, a kitchen, a living area and a bedroom with a closet.

  • Full Listing: 1313 E Street NE (map)
  • Price: $799,900
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1926
  • Listing Agent: Kymber Lovett-Menkiti, Keller Williams Capital Properties

    I predict that at least two of these will be part of a '"sold above asking price" article sometime in July. 😃
