Welcome to Bar Crawl Living where we find some worthy domiciles within stumbling distance of a neighborhood hotspot. If there's a place you want us to scope out, leave a comment or send word to our tipline.
This is a painful post. Oh, it's so painful. Scoping properties in around Nats Stadium would feel a helluva lot better if the Nats had thrown one more (just one more!) strike against the Cardinals on Saturday. So to drown the sorrows of a agonizing loss, head to the campy drag bar Ziegfeld's where the ladies will dish out sass and make the patrons smile. And for those seeking more adult adventures, head upstairs to Secrets. Once the game becomes a fuzzy memory, there's something for every buyer's price range in the Navy Yards and SW Waterfront nabes to wait until the Nats come back next year to bring the championship home. Well, fingers crossed.
1. 1311 Delaware Ave SW
Asking Price: $102,000
Square Feet: 488
What It's All About: It's not often a DC property in good condition is on the market for nearly $100K. Looking for a buyer for about 2 weeks, this studio coop is in the River Park development and bills itself as "affordable convenience". Given its access to amenities and a coop fee of $390/month (includes utilities and property taxes), it's hard to argue that it's not affordable or convenient.
2. 31 O St SW
Asking Price: $325,000
Square Feet: 1,063
What It's All About: Straight. Simple. To the point. The listing is a little more than a week old for a 2 (large) bedroom, 2.5 bath "immaculate townhouse" that sits "in the shadows of Nationals Park". None of the pics include the home's exterior, so no commentary there.
3. 1273 Delaware Ave SW
Asking Price: $499,900
Square Feet: 2,112
What It's All About: With three levels of renovated interior, the 2 bedroom condo is located in the "gated community of Carollsburg Square". With a "great new kitchen", plenty of natural light, and "assigned parking in the rear", the multi-level condo is part of a "vibrant community" near the SW Waterfront Metro.
4. 1025 1st St SE
Asking Price: $599,900
Square Feet: 1,202
What It's All About: Keepin' it luxe in SE. Here's a 2 bedroom, 2 bath end-unit condo with so much natural light it'll make you melt in the morning. The condo has a "HUGE patio" that adds about 400 sq.ft. of outdoor space for sipping hot chocolate this fall. And to make sure this unit is all about class, not only is the kitchen fancy, but the custom walk-in closets will make any aspiring fashionista and Racked readers drool. Plus, this condo comes with 2 parking spaces for the luxe wheels.
5. 1114 3rd St SE
Asking Price: $968,770
Square Feet: 2,079
What It's All About: Yes, baby. Keep it hot on these cool autumn nights. With a fireplace on the rooftop, you and your boo can snuggle up and enjoy the sites and sounds surrounding this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath townhouse at Capitol Quarter. Living in "the hottest new Capitol Hill neighborhood" sounds perfect in a four-level townhouse with garage parking. But to scope out the rooftop terrace and everything else inside this abode, make an appointment.
