Best New Listings: From Star Bolts to Surprise Sunrooms, It’s the Little Details

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week's Best New Listings includes two rowhouses, in Lincoln Park and Truxton Circle, that both boast interesting little surprises.


Small Surprises in Small Capitol Hill Rowhouse

In Lincoln Park, this petite rowhouse has a small front lawn with patio and a front porch. The entryway has an exposed brick wall that follows the stairs straight ahead, and a small leaded window with stained glass panels sits alongside the stairs. Bordered parquet wood flooring traverses the main level, and while the trim in the living room is bare wood, the trim in the dining room is painted white, joining a chair rail there. The galley kitchen has off-white cabinetry and a door with a transom window that steps out to a stair landing, walking up to an L-shaped deck. Back inside the house and on the upper level, the master bedroom has an attached sunroom. Rounding out the floorplan is a partially-finished basement with a rec room.

  • Full Listing: 222 Tennessee Avenue NE (map)
  • Price: $788,500
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Feet: 1,128
  • Year Built: 1913
  • Listing Agent: Thomas Faison, RE/MAX Allegiance

Iron Stars and Room for Cars

Where Shaw meets Truxton Circle, this end-unit rowhouse has a lot of eye-catching brick details along its façade. The house opens into a deep living/dining room with an exposed brick wall with iron star bolts. The tiled, angled kitchen occupies the back of the main level and has a narrow window. The upstairs landing is large enough to double as a bonus sitting area; the second bedroom has built-in shelving surrounding the windows. The expansive master suite has an exposed brick accent wall with an iron star bolt and built-in shelving in the corner. The rear brick patio has brick fences on either side, seamlessly seguing to a deep garage with alley access.

Best New Listings: The Symmetry and Separate Units Edition

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes two rowhouses with semi-symmetrical façades and stacked units.


A Rowhouse with a Rental

Between Lincoln Park and the Atlas District, this rowhouse contains two separately-metered units, explaining why its near-symmetrical exterior appearance is thrown slightly off-balance inside. The lower level is a one-bedroom that enters into a light-filled, deep living room with long windows. An exposed brick accent wall lines the dining area and an angular galley kitchen sits behind a windowed wall. The upper-level unit is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom with a balcony that rents for $2,125. In this unit, the stair rail creates a built-in bookshelf in the living room, which also has a closet with a window on one side and a combination of cabinets and shelves on the other.

  • Full Listing: 1225 Duncan Place NE (map)
  • Price: $699,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Feet: 1,568
  • Year Built: 1915
  • Listing Agents: Clarence Pineda, Joseph Poduslo, TTR Sotheby's International Realty

Opaque Accents in Mount Pleasant

On the outskirts of Mount Pleasant abutting Rock Creek Park, the façade of this rowhouse has a near-symmetrical array of windows made complete by the front door. The dining room has a pass-through window to the galley kitchen on one side and an archway leading to the family room on the other, which evokes a sunroom with a series of alternating windows and doors on the far wall and a Japanese-inspired shoji screen ceiling bringing in additional light. The master suite also echoes that influence, with translucent barn doors creating an opaque privacy screen that encloses the bathroom and the deep dressing room beyond. In the English basement, off-white brick pillars and red concrete stain delineate the living area. The multi-tiered rear paved patio walks up to a two-car garage.

  • Full Listing: 2039 Park Road NW (map)
  • Price: $1,499,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Feet: 2,436
  • Year Built: 1911
  • Listing Agent: Lee Murphy, Washington Fine Properties

Best New Listings: Two Montgomery County Marvels and a Ready to Play in Shepherd Park

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes a modern McInturff in Chevy Chase, captivating geometry in Cabin John, and a kid-friendly Dutch colonial in Shepherd Park.


A Masterful Modern McInturff in Chevy Chase

Noteworthy local architect Mark McInturff completed this custom contemporary home near Rock Creek Park in 1994, and its eclectic design earned several features in the press over the following decade. On the main level, exposed wooden posts and beams criss-cross the living area and the ceiling curves towards the rear of the house, where windows take up the bottom half of the wall framing doors to the rear deck. The deck is surrounded by mature trees on two sides and framed by the house on the other two, with a glazed breezeway providing a buffer between the deck and the family room. The second floor landing overlooks the main living area; this level contains a library with modern built-ins on three sides and the skylit master bedroom with juliet balcony. Two bedrooms share a full bath on the lower level.

  • Full Listing: 2923 Greenvale Road (map)
  • Price: $1,195,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Feet: 3,160
  • Year Built: 1994
  • Listing Agents: Kelly Williams, Loic Pritchett, TTR Sotheby's International Realty

Geometric and Not Generic in Cabin John

Sitting on a lot a few blocks from the C&O Canal, this house has interesting angles throughout the interior with a sprawling open concept from the deck-like front porch all the way through to an expansive backyard. Under a pitched ceiling, hardwoods traverse the main level in a giant chevron that seemingly points to the bright, tiled kitchen, arranged in an open octagon that sits opposite an enclosed hexagon that conceals the master suite. The skylit master suite, also on the main level, is introduced by a separate office area, and has a bedroom-sized custom walk-in closet. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom on the second floor. The backyard has a shed and a koi pond. 

  • Full Listing: 6530 78th Street (map)
  • Price: $1,129,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Feet: 2,232
  • Year Built: 1913
  • Listing Agent: Laura Steuart, Washington Fine Properties

Kid-Friendly Dutch Colonial in Shepherd Park

This renovated Dutch Colonial has a much more classic feel than the two listings above, with a staircase bisecting its floorplan. A recent addition makes the house more spacious than its square footage suggests, creating a kitchen that can accommodate a sizable dining area. The main level has a solarium-style playroom off the living room; similarly, a sunroom creates an office on the second floor. The finished basement, also omitted from the tax records, creates a spacious rec room. The deck off the kitchen has green space on two sides, with a modern playhouse constructed at the tip of the back yard.

  • Full Listing: 1413 Floral Street NW (map)
  • Price: $799,500
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Feet: 1,704
  • Year Built: 1926
  • Listing Agent: Kira Epstein Begal, Washington Fine Properties

This week’s Best New Listings includes an open, linear Kalorama condo and houses in both Chevy Chase, DC and Chevy Chase, Maryland — one of which is a #FlashbackFriday featuring Robert Gurney architecture.


Concealed Cabinetry in Kalorama Condo

This 1,650 square-foot Kalorama condo is concealed behind the façade of a Federal rowhouse typical of the neighborhood. The unit entrance lies off a hall that provides access to a shared brick patio, opening into the bright living area. To the left, the minimalist kitchen has large-paneled Italian cabinetry, a concealed refrigerator, six-eye cooktop and integrated espresso machine. A dining area separates the kitchen from the living room, where oversized sliding glass doors open onto a terrace with a winding metal stair up to a balcony outside the master bedroom. Both the master and second bedroom are up the set of stairs with glass partition, each with en-suite baths.

Sunkissed Kitchen in Chevy Chase Circle

One block from Chevy Chase Circle lies this Arts and Crafts home with paved paths winding along either side, and another path that walks straight up to the roomy front porch. The living room and formal dining room have beamed ceilings, with the latter also boasting a stained-glass window and built-in buffet/china cabinet. The bright, white kitchen has a breakfast section and French doors leading to the side-yard slate patio path, which continues along the side of the house to a broader yard area. Upstairs, the third bedroom has a wall of built-ins surrounding a media cubby and console combination. The house also has a finished basement with a rec room and bonus room.

A Formerly-Featured Robert Gurney Design

Long-time UT readers may remember this Robert Gurney-designed house just on the other side of Western Avenue in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The house is as practical inside as it as interesting outside. Renovated in 2007, the exterior of the house is a modernized take on the mid-century home typical of the neighborhood, with multi-story expanses of windows and glass transoms that make the roof appear to be floating on the rear façade. The interior has features and finishes associated with Gurney, like floor-to-ceiling doors and wide entryways and a custom column living room fireplace between two sets of floor-to-ceiling cabinets. But perhaps the most unique feature of the house is its 23 closets.

  • Full Listing: 127 Quincy Street (map)
  • Price: $2,550,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 5.5
  • Square Feet: 5,160
  • Year Built: 1943
  • Listing Agent: Ron Mangas, TTR Sothebys International Realty
