The Three Best Open Houses This Weekend: October 21-22


Where: 3915 5th St., NW #1
How Much: $699,900
When: Sunday, 1 to 3 pm
Why: With two stories, this two-bed, two-and-a-half-bath condo has a layout that’s more like that of a town house. High ceilings, natural light, and wood floors that starkly contrast white walls add to the home’s spacious, open feel. A breakfast bar in the kitchen can double as an eating and working area. Other features include a den, a master walk-in closet, and a back deck. The walk to the stores and restaurants on Upshur Street is less than 20 minutes, and the Georgia Avenue-Petworth Station is only nine minutes away.

Columbia Heights

Where: 1248 Fairmont St., NW #2
How Much: $450,000
When: Saturday, 1 to 4 pm and Sunday, 1 to 4 pm
Why: Located in the newly constructed Mansarte, a development with a chic mix of modern architecture and classic French design, the interior of this one-bed, one-bath is just as stylish as its exterior. The kitchen features clean and sleek designs, with custom cabinetry, a four-seat island, and a farmhouse sink. The 760-square-foot property has two outdoor patios, a fireplace, and wood flooring throughout. Both travel and recreation are easily accessible, with Columbia Heights metro station an eight-minute walk away and Meridian Hill Park just 11 minutes from the condo.

Capitol Hill East

Where: 225 20th St., NE #4
How Much: $649,900
When: Sunday, 1 to 4 pm
Why: This condo, which has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, is a great place for both living and entertaining. The private rooftop deck and marble chef’s kitchen are just two of the home’s impressive aspects. The master bathroom offers a space for relaxation with its freestanding tub and a roomy separate shower. Forward-thinking features like the Nest thermostat and parking with an electric charger make the condo modern in aesthetic and function. Recreation is located in all directions; Eliot Recreation Center and Kingman and Heritage Islands Park are within walking distance, as is RFK.
