This Weekend’s 3 Best Open Houses: November 19–20

We love these modern coffered ceilings.

619 Morton Pl., NE. All photos courtesy MRIS.

H Street Corridor



Where: 619 Morton Pl., Northeast

How much: $739,900

When: Saturday, Noon to 2 PM.

Why: It was love at first sight with those dark, hardwood floors. And the metal railings give a modern, non-cabin feel to this 1924 town house. The place was fully renovated in 2016, bringing a swanky Calacatta countertop and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, modern fixtures in the three-and-a-half bathrooms—including a sink that looks like a birdbath, but in a good and fancy way—plus a finished basement and large rear deck for classy cookouts. Plus, there’s a garage with an automatic opener. Score.

H Street Corridor




Where: 715 Florida Ave., Northeast

How much: $799,900

When: Sunday, 1 to 3 PM

Why: The living room, dining room, and kitchen make up one expansive hall, renovated with marble, reclaimed wood, and recessed and funky, suspending lighting. An island dominates the kitchen section, so you can entertain your guests while you sauté on the range and sip from your collection in the built-in wine fridge. Upstairs, there are two spacious bedrooms—windows to wake you up with the birds, an office, and a private roof deck.




Where: 2207 Flagler Pl., NW

How much: $899,900

When: Sunday, 1 to 4 PM

Why: Ever wanted to live in a modern art museum? The custom ceiling on the main level looks like a geometric sculpture  paired with the gray exposed-brick walls and a chic, contemporary kitchen. There’s a back patio, a bow window, and a striking tray ceiling in the master bedroom. The house also a cozy office, private balcony, and a separately metered two-bedroom basement unit.
