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.

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.

Lise, there are no more beautiful cherry blossom views that those in Kenwood House.  My first visit to this building was at the height of the blooms many years ago. I've never forgotten it.  Sadly, everyone I've worked with who asked about the building had s small furry creature.  We found something else, but not with the amazing views of thick pink flowers.

If buildings allow pets and washers and dryers, they sell so much more quickly!
