Bays Abound in a Brookland Victorian

The deep living room enjoys additional space from a bay window, as does the adjacent dining room, which has a painted brick fireplace. The kitchen is in a nook near a breakfast room, which leads out to a screened-in porch overlooking a deep backyard with garden areas and a 250 square-foot detached garage at the back of the lot. The spacious carpeted basement has white-painted brick walls, a full bath, as well as a separate laundry and storage room. The upstairs landing has a bay window nook abutting the staircase, and the house also has a 930 square-foot attic.

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 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.
