Two-bedroom apartments are possibly the toughest market to shop for in DC: the price jump after a one-bedroom is enormous, the quantity is scarce, and the second bedrooms are often scary sub-hallways that would present a challenge for even a twin-sized bed. So when one comes on the market that looks this good, you better put your bids in quickly.

Featuring built-in bookshelves, hardwood flooring, and a rounded little Hobbit door, this historic beauty happens to be located on Crescent Place, the quiet, gingko-lined street just off 16th that features some of the area’s most beautiful architecture—and views of the stunning Meridian House.
