Why Choose Kenwood House?

The Coops at Kenwood House Are A Well Kept Secret!

Built in 1962, the Kenwood House is a small building of five floors and approximately 70 in total.  Located on Dorset Avenue at the entrance to the Kenwood community, the Kenwood House sits quietly between Little Falls and the Capital Crescent Trail.  In the rear of the building are the sports fields of Washington Episcopal Day School, so from every window of Kenwood House are lovely views of trees and green space. The Kenwood House offers traditional floorplans with enclosed kitchens and good sized bedrooms.  Parking is not a problem here with the parking garage and surface parking!  Some units have balconies while a few on the ground level have private terraces.

The smallest coops at the Kenwood House are a spacious 840 square feet for the one bedroom one bath units, found in tiers 07, 10, 11 and 12.  The 02 tier is a two bedroom unit at 1100 square feet, while the 06 tier provides you with 1200 square feet of space.  The 00, 01, 08, 09 and 14 tiers are two bedroom two bath units with 1300 square feet.  If you are looking for more space, you should consider the 04 or 05 tiers with three bedrooms and two baths at 1500 square feet!  

In the last year, prices have ranged from $153,000 for a one bedroom 840 square foot coop to $370,000 for a two bedroom, 1300 square foot coop. Coop fees, which are all inclusive, range from $773 for a one bedroom to nearly $1000 for a two bedroom 1300 square foot coop, and of course more for the 1500 square foot units.  For all your questions about financing the purchase of a coop, just read here.

Coop fees include all utilities, water and sewer, common area maintenance and custodial services, exterior building maintenance, lawn maintenance, management, master insurance policy, reserve funds, taxes, trash removal, snow removal and trash removal. 

The Kenwood House does not allow pets, which makes it perfect for people with pet allergies or who simply want a very quiet environment.
