Mid-Century Modern in Silver Spring
This Cape Cod-style house in Silver Spring has a mid-century modern style, with an open-concept living area between an entryway and a dining room. The dining room also has a pass-through window to the family room, two steps down with an exposed red brick wall, a wood-burning freestanding fireplace, and a slanted ceiling with exposed beams and clerestory windows. Two sets of oversized window trios unite the family room and adjacent, skylit kitchen, which are also delineated by a breakfast bar peninsula island. A screened-in porch opens onto a landing with a spiral stair winding down to the sloped backyard. There are two bedrooms which share a full bath on the main level, including one with a wall of built-ins surrounding a window. The owner's bedroom and fourth bedroom share a full bath upstairs.

A Friendship Heights House with Library Loft
This expanded Friendship Heights house is a bibliophile's dream, starting with the shelving surrounding the entryway to the living room. A bay in the family room features french doors opening onto an angular porch, which wraps around to lead to the octagonal screened-in porch. A custom cherry breakfast bar peninsula sits beneath hand-blown glass pendants, delineating the open galley kitchen with a triple sink on the opposite wall. The owner's bedroom has a wide bay window and access to a balcony, and the third bedroom is nearly double-sized and also has balcony access. The loft-like uppermost level is set up like a library with exposed beams and a series of built-ins lining the walls, as well as an archtop window and a skylit office nook. There is also a bedroom on the finished lower level and a rear yard with a spacious brick patio and detached garage.
