The Three Best Open Houses This Weekend: October 28-29


Where: 1804 1st St., NW #1
How Much: $845,000
When: Sunday, 1-4 p.m.
Why: Though this Victorian town home has been remodeled as a duplex condo, spaciousness was not compromised in the new layout. The 2,000-square-foot, three-bed, three-bath home includes an outdoor patio and quaint balcony. Notable features include a freestanding tub, double vanities, a wet bar in the large media room, and stranded bamboo floors. The 19th-century exposed-brick accents complement the sleek, modern redesign of the interior. Dine out at nearby Basio Pizzeria or Boundary Stone, which are only a short walk away.

Capitol Hill

Where: 425 5th St., NE
How Much: $775,000
When: Sunday, 2-4 pm
Why: This two-bed, one-and-a-half-bath town home built in 1870 maintains hints of the Victorian-era construction, seen in the oak wood floors, exposed brick, built-ins, and crown molding. Modern updates include a washer-dryer in the master and quartz countertops in the compact kitchen, which leads out to a fenced-in backyard and patio area. The home is walkable to the Capitol building and the sights and museums on the Mall.

U Street Corridor

Where: 1312 Florida Ave., NW #2
How Much: $675,000
When: Sunday, 11am-1 pm
Why: Hardwood floors, exposed brick, two fireplaces, and crown molding are highlights of this two-bed, two-bath Victorian, an end unit that also features an open floor plan. The master suite has a walk-in closet and updated bathroom with stone accents. The home is a short walk to Meridian Hill Park, Busboys and Poets, and Marvin.
