2021 has brought a lot of change to the District already and this week brought one of the biggest changes. In typical DMV fashion, a new administration means an influx of new residents as well as others skipping town and amongst all these changes there’s one thing that hasn’t changed — the DMV real estate market. With 230+ open houses in the District this weekend, throw on your jacket and mask and get to finding your next home! Make sure your agent has a strategy to keep you safe while searching for your next home. To see the full Open House List, click here.
- 701 Lamont Street NW #20 — $469,900 — Park View/Columbia Heights
Open Sun. 12-2 p.m. — Fernando Garcia
“At the Petworth edge of Columbia Heights, this 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath condo offers a genuine mid-20th Century aesthetic as vibrant as ever. The exposed ductwork, 11-foot ceilings, walls of windows and polished-concrete floors illustrate the building’s integrity, while the new appliances and conveniences — double gas oven with convection cooking, walk-in closet with Elfa organizer, bamboo flooring in the bedroom, and so much more — showcase a home’s comforts. More practically, consider the newer appliances, the *very* new HVAC, garage parking and fitness room. Or, for inspiration, visit the rooftop deck for sweeping views of the nation’s capital. Back at street level, take in some of the city’s best venues, from bagels across the street at Call Your Mother, fabulous Filipino offerings at Bad Saint, or get Georgian — *khachapuri*, not collards — on Georgia Avenue with Tabla by Supra. At Lamont Street Lofts, Unit 20 brings it all together with an affordable-yet-authentic midcentury aesthetic and outstanding location, along with all the comforts and convenience you crave.”
