A Former Corner Store in Stanton Park

This corner rowhouse has a storefront-style bay signifying, along with a transom window embossed with "Johnston's Market 1915-1944" above the front door, the property's former life as a Capitol Hill corner store. The open main level of the converted three-bedroom home has an exposed brick wall and archtop fireplace, and the adjacent dining area has an original wooden meat locker-turned-wet-bar built-in. Tiled floors and white-painted ceiling beams span the white kitchen and breakfast room; the latter also houses the skylit stairway along an exposed brick wall with storage and a powder room built beneath. The upstairs landing prominently features exposed brick archways, and the owner's bedroom also has an arched brick fireplace, all of which were restored out of the original brick.

Bricks Galore and an Outdoor Theater in Truxton Circle

Over in Truxton Circle, a brick-paved sidewalk and walkway lead up to a patio area just outside the front door of this two-bedroom rowhouse. The walls along the main level are primarily weathered brick beneath painted ceiling beams, echoed in the floating staircase. A pantry area with built-in shelving offers a prelude to the galley kitchen beyond, which has marble countertops and transom windows above sliding glass doors, effectively creating a wall of windows at the back of the main level. The owner's bedroom upstairs has a bay nook and two exposed brick accent walls, while the second bedroom has two white-painted brick accent walls. The house has a roof terrace that can double as an outdoor movie theater, as well as a brick-paved rear yard.
