Homes Currently On The Market in Colonial Village:

Colonial Village DC home for sale NEW. 7947 Orchid St NW — $1,039,000. Great house in beautiful shape. 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths. Stately features and a few somewhat eccentric finishes.

Days on Market: 6
Colonial Village DC home for sale NEW. 1639 Myrtle St NW — $899,900. Nice, solid  colonial on a nice block. Perhaps a bit ambitiously priced, given that it sold for $610k in 2011. Granted, the current owners fixed some of the problematic issues (steep, wild backyard now transformed into pretty and usable space with large patio/retaining walls) and updated the bathrooms, added fresh paint and carpeting, etc.), so we’ll see. 3 br, 2 full and 2 half baths. Listed with Rory S. Coakley Realty. Days on Market: 6
Colonial Village DC home for sale REDUCED ONCE MORE, to $899,000 — 2254 Sudbury Rd NW.

Price reflects updates, but on high end for size of home. 4BR/3FB on a  7,877 s.f. lot. A block from Parkway Deli and RCF Sports. Perched against Rock Creek Park. Listed with Citylights Realty Group.

Home for sale in Colonial Village Portal Estates Washington DC BACK. 1715 Tamarack St NW — $769,000.
(Original LP: $799,000.) This one could use some loving, but it wouldn’t take much to spruce it up. 4BR/3FB on a large 8,999 s.f. lot. The challenge is the bedroom placement, with 2 on the main floor and another 2 in the lower level. For some, just perfect. For others, not so much. Listed with Long & Foster. Days on Market: 128 (1)
Remodeled home for sale in Colonial Village DC ALSO POSSIBLY COMING BACK: 1709 Kalmia Rd NW — Officially showing as “WITHDRAWN.” Not sure why. Last price was $1,287,500.

Colonial Village DC Homes For Sale 2/2/2014

IMG_0013Update for February 2nd, 2014. Still pretty much… nothing. No new listings. No price reductions. One listing withdrawn after 138 days on the market; not sure if/when it might be coming back. (Please note that the home in the picture, while representative for Colonial Village architecture, is NOT for sale.)

All homes and condos in this post are currently for sale in the Colonial Village neighborhood of Washington, DC. The top of the list features the newest listings. We will be updating this post every Sunday, so be sure to check back to see what’s new, what’s gone, & what might be coming. While most of these might not be our own listings, we’ve taken the time to inject our opinions on the condition, features, quirks and pricing. Cati has lived (and sold real estate) in Rock Creek Forest and Colonial Village for 8 years (after residing in NW Washington DC for the previous 11 years). If you have a question or want to chat, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at anytime!
