231 8th St

Where: 231 8th St., SE

How much: $1,249,000

When: Sunday, 1:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.

Why: This restored 1864 home has three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. Tray ceilings, crown molding, fireplace mantels, and built-in bookcases (even in the kitchen!) add texture to the space. There’s a spa tub in the master suite for luxury bathing inside and an in-ground pool on the private patio out back.




Where: 537 7th St., SE

How much: $949,900

When: Saturday and Sunday, 1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.

Why: With three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths less than two blocks from the Eastern Market Metro stop, this brick row house offers a lot for the price. There are also granite countertops, wood floors, and a private, oversized garage with parking and storage space.



Where: 209 3rd St., SE

How much: $1,949,900

When: Sunday, 1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.

Why: Four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, three fireplaces, two-car garage, and a partridge in a pear tree. Just kidding about that last one, but there is a magnolia tree in the rear courtyard. High ceilings and broad door- and window-casings are true to the 1890 period this row house was built. A back patio and two-car garage serve the busy modern family.
