Woodley Wardman Condominiums
2818 Connecticut Ave, NW Washington DC 20008
This boutique condo has emerged and has had healthy sales in the highly desirable Woodley Park neighborhood. The Woodley Wardman Condominium‘s 7-story “tower” is being transformed into four luxurious townhomes (condo flats). The end result will be a total of 39 units, with almost as many different floor plans, from studios to three bedroom, three bath residences. An eco-efficiency design includes natural gas appliances and heating systems, energy star appliances, energy efficient windows, recycled core materials in doors and more.
A two block walk gets you to the Woodley Park Metro, and you are only a 10 minute walk to Adams-Morgan. Also close by are the vibrant neighborhoods of Dupont Circle and Cleveland Park where you’ll find a host of great restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, banks, fitness studios, a library and post office and the Uptown Theatre.
With the National Zoo and Rock Creek Parkway a stone’s throw from the Woodley Wardman, there is plenty of leisure activities to accommodate the outdoor enthusiasts as well.
When looking for an oasis in the city, DC home buyers need look no further than Berkley. The picturesque area is surrounded by parks on many sides and the resulting feel is that of a quaint neighborhood. But being just a stone’s throw from Georgetown, and the shops of Macarthur Blvd and the Palisades, Berkly, DC remains true city living. It has all the benefits of a downtown urban area, including easy access to major commuter routes and airports, but retains a sense of charm as well.
Not only is this one of the nicer areas to live in all of Washington DC, but it has also been great in terms of investment. The average home prices in Berkley have remained more stable than many other DC neighborhoods, with the average home value indexed at just over $1.3 million in July of 2011. Further, adding to the good news for investors who are lucky enough to have the option to purchase in this area, is the relatively low turnover. Recent years have see a shortage of good inventory in this desirable neighborhood, which has stabilized home prices even in declining markets.
As the autumn has fallen upon us in DC, one of the fruits of the area harvest in terms of real estate has been a few good options in Berkley. Investors would be wise to take advantage of these properties while they can. The Koitz Group at Keller Williams Capital properties is pleased to represent one of these special properties. This is one of the flagship homes for the DC Area Luxury division that we are proud to be a part of, and is one of the most distinctive and charming residences on the market in the city. The home is perfect for families as well as for the discerning diplomat looking for a proper residence in the city.
A very special offering in AU Park – 4527 44th Street, NW Washington DC 20016
Located in the highly desirable neighborhood of American University Park, within 3 blocks of the Tenley Metro stop, a property for sale on 44th Street, NW offers tremendous charm combined with many modern updates. A wonderfully landscaped lot provides great curb appeal as you approach the house and enter a covered front porch. The entry opens immediately into a generous living/dining space, with a large kitchen (complete with center island) just beyond. Behind the kitchen is a covered back porch that opens into a private back yard (again, beautifully landscaped) and an oversized one car (two small cars!) garage.
Back inside the house, there is a full, updated bath on the first floor and a partially finished lower level, with tons of storage space and an outside exit. On the second floor, you’ll find three bedrooms (the master has a separate dressing area), an office and another full bath.
In some of the most prestigious and exclusive neighborhoods in the Greater Bethesda area, Mansions are “coming in a box”. The thought leaders behind this ever growing trend of Greater Bethesda luxury modules is Spring Builders — one of the DC Metro’s most highly regarded custom build and remodeling firms. The video below, (courtesy of Sandy Spring via The washington Post) is a time elapsed video of one of their creations in Northwest Washington DC — just a few days after some relatively heavy snowfall last winter.
I’ll add videos, pictures, and commentary on more of the finished Multi Million custom modular products (they don’t dissapoint!). It’s especially remarkable to see them going up in Edgemoor (near Downtown Bethesda), where you’d be hard pressed to find a lot (or tear-down) for less than $1.3M. Enjoy the video and stand by for more on Sandy Spring’s innovative approach to Bethesda & DC luxury builds. Please note, since “The Post” needs to “pay their bills” there’s a 15 second commercial before the good stuff. And just a a kind warning, there’s some “noise”…so if ou’re at work, you may want to mind the volume 🙂 For what it’s worth I tried to get rid of it through nifty programming. 🙂
The small neighborhood of Massachusetts Avenue Heights is home to the Washington National Cathedral as wall as a small, triangular residential section located between Garfield Street and Massachusetts Avenue. Its prime location (picture Hollywood Hills of DC) and its exclusive number of available homes are just two of the reasons why Massachusetts Heights is such a desirable neighborhood.
Cleveland Park, Washington DC
Cleveland Park, DC real estate features some of the finest homes and townhomes in the DC Metro area, but its personal properties aren’t the only reason so many people are attracted to this neighborhood. Rather, the extensive amount of green space that surrounds the neighborhood and its rich history are certainly major draws as well. In fact, the neighborhood was listed as a Historic District in 1987. A variety of exquisite architectural styles reflecting this history can be found within the neighborhood, including Queen Anne, Victoria, Mission and Classical Revival homes.
