Right on the lively 14th Street NW commercial corridor, this studio condo unit at the Aston building, at 1634 14th Street NW, features modern finishes and functional design. The unit, which just hit the market for $355,000, has a private outdoor patio accessible through a glass door and a sleek kitchen with marble counters and backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and a wine fridge. It also comes with a Murphy bed flanked on both sides by wide custom shelves.
There are in-unit laundry machines. The bathroom has marble walls and flooring as well as a sizable tub/shower combo. A spacious walk-in closet includes drawers, cubbies, and a built-in vanity. Behind the shelves in the living space is a hidden storage area with a ceiling light.
The studio last sold in 2016 for $325,000, property records say, and HOA dues are $313 a month. The building is pet-friendly. It’s a quick stroll from some of the city’s best-known restaurants, shops, and bars, plus a 10-minute walk from the U Street–African American Civil War Memorial Metro station. Kimberly Casey of Washington Fine Properties are the listing agents. An open house is set for May 12, 1 p.m. through 4 p.m.
