Bloomingdale: $774,900

Rowhouse: 1817 First St. NW

This gutted D.C. rowhouse has all the classic attributes that buyers might expect from a brand-new home located in a turn-of-the-20th-century building. Spacious and well-lit with hardwood oak floors and granite countertops, the approximately 2,500-square-foot home has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms (one of each in the tiled basement). Ample closet space and an attic — somewhat rare for a D.C. brownstone — are apt to cause organization envy in visiting friends who are lured to the block and its surroundings by a burgeoning abundance of hot spots, including Big Bear Cafe and a Sunday farmers market.

West End: $749,000

Condo:  2555 Pennsylvania Ave. NW #809

A balcony that overlooks Georgetown and stretches the entire length of this eighth-floor condo makes the view the focal point of the unit’s living room and two bedrooms. Located in the residential portion of the Westbridge building, which also houses offices of the Patton Boggs law firm, this property has all the requisite niceties that a condo fee of $949 per month can buy, including a pool, exercise room, concierge, parking, storage space and roof deck. Granite kitchen counters, parquet floors, stainless steel appliances and two bathrooms round out this 1,375-square-foot property. (Listed by Sotheby’s)
