An $84,000 Bump for Parisian-Style Living on the Hill

This restored Federal rowhouse, tucked away on the Hill on a hidden block where residents use the double-wide sidewalk as a porch Parisian-style, blends vintage-style form with function. Unexpected flourishes abound, from the custom energy-efficient kitchen appliances to mindful yet stylish finishings like waxed bamboo flooring and recycled glass countertops. The home sold within a week of being listed for $84,000 above the asking price.

The Small Starchitect Premium

Just across the DC border in Mount Rainier, a Mark McInturff renovation created an expansive multi-use suite that commanded a nearly $18,000 premium. After several occasional renovations, the aforementioned local architect created a belvedere constructed from the original roof, flooding the space with natural light and ventilation; a set of French doors in the loft also lead to a small balcony above the front porch. The three-bedroom cottage is sited on a double lot, giving its new owner plenty of space to to have open uses both in- and outside the house.
