Best New Listings: One of the Last One-Bedroom Houses on Capitol Hill

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes a condo-sized historic rowhouse and two four-bedrooms with a lot of wood.


A One-Bedroom Rowhouse in Lincoln Park

This mint-colored single-story Lincoln Park rowhouse was designed by architect Charles Gessford as workforce housing, and is one of five of its kind remaining. Despite having square footage akin to a studio, the one-bedroom house has a deceptively efficient layout. A pair of door-framed mirrors on opposite walls reflect the light coming in from the front door. The living room has a deep, 11 foot-tall tray ceiling with a skylight and a narrow set of built-ins. The galley pass-through kitchen has stacked square cabinets, and the bedroom beyond has a combo washer/dryer and a closet beneath a storage cubby. Sliding glass doors in the bedroom lead out to a fenced-in patio with access to a parking pad.

  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Feet: 407

A Mid-Century Falls Church Four-Bedroom

Wood planks and beams are latticed across the pitched ceiling of this mid-century house in Holmes Run Acres, and there are tiled floors both in the dining room at the front and in the adjacent skylit kitchen. Weathered brick partitions the living room and family room, hosting a media nook and fireplace on one side, and a wall of windows also houses sliding glass doors out to a rear deck. The owner's suite is on the main level and the other three bedrooms share a skylit full bath. The lower level has pitched ceilings and a fireplace in the rec room, recessed into a brick accent panel; there is also a bonus room with a huge picture window-like separate egress to the backyard.

A Built-in-Filled Bungalow in Takoma Park

A few blocks from DC, a pebbled path leads up to the front porch of this corner lot bungalow. Wood framing is prominent throughout the interior, with post-and-lintels creating open sightlines and built-ins beneath pass-throughs in the main living area. The living room has a brick fireplace beneath a wood shelf, and an open floor-to-ceiling hutch sits where a doorway would be to the dining room. A commercial hood floats above the Viking range facing the pass-through to the dining room, and the window above the sink has glass shelves. The owner's bedroom has beams floating below the vaulted ceiling and access to a private balcony. The house also has a large rear deck and a spacious lawn.
