GOPer Or Dem, Union Pub And Capitol Hill Are Cool For All Political Persuasions

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.

Post-Frankenstorm, pre-Election 2012, it's time to come together under one big tent. Or not. That's probably just wishful thinking. But there is a spot on the cusp between Union Station and Capitol Hill that welcomes all no matter what the political stripe. And while grabbing a pint at the Union Pub with a mate from across the political aisle, there are plenty of spots to crash in the nabe. From non-profit price points all the way to oil industry lobbyist, there's something for every wonk and assistant director policy research associate blah, blah, blah in this DC hood.

1. 333 2nd St NE
Asking Price: $204,000
Square Feet: 360
What It's All About: By far the cheapest and smallest property on this week's list, here's a studio on the top floor that's an "excellent starter home and easy to rent for investors". Even though the floor space is minimal, the shower is "huge". Maybe it'll be big enough to make into a partial den.

2. 605 2nd St NE
Asking Price: $699,000
Square Feet: 900
What It's All About: A townhouse with a C2A zoning along the future buyer of this property to mix it all up. (We're told a C2A zoning is pretty rare.) With parking in the rear, this listing let's us know who this is perfect for: "Non-Profits/Lobbyist/Lawyers/Rest". And "Rest" means "restaurant" and not "restroom".

3. 409 6th St NE
Asking Price: $739,900
Square Feet: 1,602
What It's All About: Fresh to the market, this historic district row house has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 4 levels. And for those who are closeted hoarders, there's a "place for everything and everything in its place". With "Old World charm galore" (aka lots of wood), this is a home for those looking to "fall in love".

4. 210-B 3rd St NE
Asking Price: $859,000
Square Feet: 1,242
What It's All About: Location is a "Wow". And that's the only thing that has a "wow" factor with this home since there are no interior pics. But the listing gives us a what's what when it comes to interior offerings: "Renovated with strking cabinetry and granite; miele, bosch, conserve, --Open floor plan. working fireplace; moldings, chair rail; wood floors, beautiful mstr suite w/ 2headed shower; soaking tub; dbl vanities; w/ d on Br level; good closet space..." Sounds like a "wow".

5. 312 6th St NE
Asking Price: $1,199,900
Square Feet: 2,212
What It's All About: "Character & period details" sell this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath Victorian home. In a "prime location" with a one-car garage, the three-story home has everything a well-connected political animal needs, including a double parlor (because who wants a single parlor?), a bonus room (yeah, bonus!), and an in-law suite for those that overstay their welcome. On the market for less than 2 months, this catch may not be around for too much longer.
