Best New Listings: Solar Panels, a Swimming Pool and a Contemporary Condo

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a 16th Street Heights home with solar panels, a Capitol Hill colonial with a pool, and a modern Logan Circle condo with windows to spare.


16th Street Heights Four-Bedroom with Solar Panels

Built in 1913, this four-bedroom Arts and Crafts-style home has some very 21st Century additions, like solar panels, an irrigation system, and a climate-controlled garage that the current owner uses as a wood shop. The four-story, 2,934-square foot house sits on a double-sized lot, and the master bedroom, kitchen and living room are extremely spacious. Rock Creek Park is half a block away.

Capitol Hill Colonial With a Pool

This three-bedroom colonial near Lincoln Park has one very unique feature: a swimming pool in the backyard. While the pool doesn’t look too big, it couldn’t be more inviting this week. The house is also an end unit with significantly more windows and light than your average row house. There are a few other charming features, like front and back porches and exposed brick in the kitchen. The owners turned an unfinished basement into an in-law suite with a full kitchen and bathroom four years ago. The house also comes with two off-street parking spaces and a one-car garage.

Modern Two-Bedroom Condo Near Logan Circle
This two-bedroom condo is in Logan Park, a 16-unit condo building developed in 2008. The contemporary design means that the living room is essentially a sun room with two walls of windows. The master bedroom also has floor-to-ceiling windows. A entrance hallway and a second bathroom cut into the 1,050-square feet and some rooms are pretty small. A breakfast bar creates extra counter space in the tight kitchen, and the second bedroom is currently being used as an office. Another appealing amenity is the rooftop deck.

  • Price: $549,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 2008
