This week’s Best New Listings includes a traditional Petworth rowhouse and a Georgetown Victorian customized by architect Christian Zapatka.
Traditional on Petworth's Quiet Side
Facing the quiet side of the Armed Forces Retirement Home at the edge of Petworth, this three-bedroom rowhouse and its full-length porch are typical of the neighborhood. The house enters into the foyer and has a traditional layout on the main level, with the living room sitting through an entryway to the right. A wall bump-out here creates recesses on either side, and the formal dining room is on the other side of the next doorway. On one side, the dining room leads to the renovated galley kitchen, and on the other side, a set of paned French doors open onto a sunken family room/den with a quartet of oversized windows. The lower level offers recreation space and the third full bathroom, while the paved space at the back of the house provides easy access to the unassuming attached garage.

Extensive Customization in the East Village
This four-bedroom house around the corner from Dumbarton Oaks Park in Georgetown was expanded and renovated by architect Christian Zapatka. The exterior of the red brick Victorian features a diamond-patterned duotone border beneath the roofline. Inside, the living room has floor-to-ceiling built-ins on either side of the fireplace, which has a column that separates the dining room from the kitchen, the latter with its floor-to-ceiling china cabinet framing a window above a desk area. The kitchen cabinetry segues into a wall of built-in cabinets that comprise a media console in the adjacent family room. The owner's suite upstairs has double exposure and a fireplace with built-in floating cabinets above a mirror and a set of drawers on either side. The en-suite walk-in closet has walls of shelves, drawers and interior closets. The home has a lower level with a rec room and exercise room, and outside, there are rear and side gardens intersected by a flagstone patio.
