This week’s Best New Listings includes a Chevy Chase home with a built-in golf space, a converted restaurant, and a cottage with a heavy New England aesthetic.
A Restaurant Converted Into a Four-Bedroom
Once a restaurant and then the headquarters for the Daughters of the American Revolution, this space on the first floor of the Tilden Gardens complex in Cleveland Park has a rich history. UrbanTurf previously covered its transition into a home in 2011. Since the latest remodel, large, curved archways and tall, ornate ceilings add drama to the main living space, and a multitude of windows and octagonal skylights draw in natural light. The large living room enabled the current owners to entertain large groups. The kitchen, which connects to the living room via two separate doors, features a country-style design with blue gray cabinets, marble counters and gold finishes. Two rooms off the main living area are currently used as a library and movie room, and the primary bedroom also features a walk-in closet with a vanity sink.

A Nantucket Cottage in the Palisades
This cottage has a decidedly New England feel with its wooden shingles and unique architectural features. Passers-by will notice pitched roofs, which have been creatively converted into bedrooms and flex space that hold a day bed and mini-loft. UrbanTurf’s favorite features are the roof deck and the home's detached studio in the backyard. The studio is fully finished with carpet, built-in shelves, an artistically curved wooden ceiling with a fan and large windows. The basement is fully finished and can serve as an in-law suite since it has its own private entrance. The screened porch on the back of the home leads to the fully fenced backyard, and there is also an electric car charger in the front of the house.

A Chevy Chase Home with Endless Entertainment Options
This Chevy Chase find offers modern finishes and ample entertainment space - including a backyard studio that’s currently being used as an indoor golf center. The basement of the home is fully finished with a corner bar area and could serve as the ideal movie or game room. On the main floor, the kitchen has lots of windows and a breakfast bar that overlooks the dining room. Back and front porch spaces offer ample opportunities for relaxation. A fireplace sits in the main living room, adjacent to the kitchen. A converted attic on the top floor of the house with large skylights could function as a bedroom or office.
