Built in 1933, this three-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom brick Colonial in Southeast’s Hillcrest neighborhood has no shortage of vintage charm. Located at 2311 33rd St. SE, just off Alabama Avenue SE, the home has hardwood floors and original molding throughout.
The property went up for sale this past weekend and is listing for $499,900. Like other single-family homes in the area, it sits on a sizable lot—7,333 square feet, according to public records. The front lawn is deep, and the backyard is grassy, expansive, flat, and fenced. This makes it a great place for “furry friends to run,” as the listing agent puts it.
Inside, the living room has a brick fireplace, and a screened-in porch on the side of the house provides space fit for entertaining on warm nights. Both the finished attic and the basement offer additional living and storage space. Still, prospective buyers may want to update the kitchen and other interior features of the home. It last changed hands in 2006.
Once home to former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, Hillcrest is known for its big lots, tree-lined streets, and relatively affordable single-family homes. The listing agent is Anita Moore with Hyattsville-based Trammell Real Estate Group.
