New in D.C.: Brookland walkability, rooftop views
EYA, named America’s Best Builder in 2009 by Builder magazine, specializes in smart-growth developments such as town-home communities within walking distance of public transportation, shops and other amenities. The company also builds mixed-use developments and has built nearly 30 neighborhoods in the Washington area, including revitalizing the neighborhood surrounding Nationals Park in Southeast Washington, National Park Seminary in Silver Spring, Md., the Arts District in Hyattsville, Md., and several communities in Alexandria, Va.
One of its latest developments is Chancellor’s Row, a new community of town homes four blocks from the Brookland/Catholic University Metro station in Northeast Washington. Sited on a 10-acre parcel of St. Paul's College, Chancellor’s Row will have 3 acres of open spaces, with views of D.C. landmarks. Residents will be able to walk not only to Metro, but also to nearby shops and restaurants, the theater, and fitness and cultural amenities available at Trinity University and Catholic University. Twelfth Street Northeast in Brookland provides more nearby shops and restaurants, and residents also can enjoy performances at Dance Place.
The 237 town homes will have brick exteriors with rooftop terraces, cornice detailing and paint colors that fit in with the neighborhood’s architectural styles. Each four-level home will have a private one- or two-car garage, Energy Star windows, professional landscaping and an energy-efficient light-colored roof. Some of the homes will include cement siding and a brick stoop with a wrought-iron railing. A front porch and a deck are optional.
Inside, the homes have three or four bedrooms and two or three full baths, a powder room, hardwood flooring in the powder room and kitchen, 9-foot ceilings on the main and upper levels, two-panel smooth-finish doors, high-tech wiring, recessed lighting, and ceramic tile flooring in the foyer.
Each master bath has ceramic tile flooring, double-sink vanities and a glass-enclosed shower, and the secondary baths also have ceramic tile flooring. The kitchens have 42-inch birch cabinets, granite or Corian counters, recessed lighting, a pantry and Energy Star appliances. The homes are Energy Star and LEED certified for energy efficiency. Each has a rough-in for a solar hot-water system, and buyers can add a rough-in for electric panels and an electric-car charging station.
The homes are priced from $469,900 to $589,900, with a monthly homeowners association fee of $121.
The Dupont model, priced from $559,900, has three bedrooms, two or three full baths, a powder room and a two-car garage. This home has a lower-level entrance into a foyer that also has a door to the garage. The foyer has a double-door closet. Next to the foyer is a study that buyers can turn into a bedroom with the addition of a closet and double doors.
The main level has an open floor plan with the living area at the front of the house and an open dining area in the center. Buyers can add a gas fireplace to the living room and adjust the plan to contain an enclosed kitchen. The standard plan has an open center-island kitchen with a pantry and an adjacent powder room. Buyers can add a deck to the back of this level.
The upper level features an expansive master suite with a walk-in closet and a private full bath. This level also has a laundry room and a second bedroom with a closet and a private full bath.
The finished loft level has an open loft with a sliding glass door to the roof terrace. Buyers can add a full bath to this level, if desired.
