The second floor has three bedrooms and in the backyard are raised garden beds and fruit trees.

A Brookland Farmhouse With a Deep Backyard

There are far too few farmhouses within the DC borders, but here is one that will look quite attractive with a little TLC.

Upstairs are three good-sized bedrooms and downstairs the basement is unfinished.

Two-Bedroom Penthouse in Mount Vernon Square

The top-floor unit in a rowhouse that was converted into four condos in 2009, this two-bedroom has the makings of a listing that will move fast. Exposed brick frames one side of the large, bright living and kitchen space and there is a nice window nook where two chairs are currently positioned. If there is a downside to this penthouse unit it is that there is just one bathroom.

  • Price: $574,900
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
