Colonial Village DC Homes For Sale 3/18/2014

Homes in Colonial Village Dc -- Rock Creek Forest MDUpdate for March 18th, 2014.  Yet more snow! At least there were two new Colonials that came on for this past weekend, and both are lovely houses in their own way. One price reduction; one off-market sale, and one that–as previously predicted–came back on the market. Currently, there are three homes under contract. You can follow them here.

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 usually update this post every Sunday or right after the weekend, 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!

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. Easy walk to Metro. The only drawback for some is the lack of a backyard, but for others it will be more than made up for by a gorgeous patio. Listed with Lee Goldstein of our own Evers & Company. 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.
(Original LP: $980,000.) MCM-style home, beautifully renovated with great design choices for kitchen and baths. Nice open spaces on main level, large rec room and guest suite on lower. 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. Days on Market: 100
Large home in Colonial Village DC 2125 Yorktown Rd NW — $1,399,000.

Did we mention that it backs to Rock Creek Park! Recent $100K price reduction. Listed with our own Evers & Company Real Estate, Inc. Days on Market: 154
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.
5 BR/3.5 Baths. Lovely renovation with lots of nice touches. House is perched quite high on the hill, so the views are magnificent. Nice kitchen opening to family room. Attached garage. Recent price reduction. Listed with John C. Formant Real Estate. Days on Market: 138
