Windows Abound in Brookland Three-Bedroom
Sold for $32,000 above asking, this Brookland colonial combines original charm with multiple sunroom-like spaces. The main level has its original hardwood flooring and stained molding, and the living room has a red brick fireplace and leads to a sitting room surrounded by windows on three sides. French doors in the bright formal dining room open onto a sunroom-like enclosed porch, currently styled as a breakfast room.
