by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes a Capitol Hill cottage and bungalows in Hyattsville and Takoma Park.


A Mid-19th Century Capitol Hill Cottage

Over on Capitol Hill, this adorable mid-19th century semi-detached cottage has a brick-paved patio area beside the front door. The living room has built-in shelving and cabinets on either side of a brick fireplace, and the kitchen has dark green marble countertops on four sides, creating a breakfast bar peninsula. An exposed brick wall extends into the dining/sitting room, which has a full bath behind folding doors and a step up to double doors that lead out to the rear brick-paved patio with a small shed and garden area. Exposed brick also lines the stairway up to the landing and the two larger bedrooms. The third bedroom has a built-in, shelving-framed Murphy bed, and the second level also has pull-down stairs to attic storage space.

A Takoma Park Bungalow with Bonus Space

While this Takoma Park bungalow may appear petite, the interior is surprisingly generous. There is a front porch with ceiling fan, and just inside, the living room has a painted brick fireplace and access to the backyard. The dining room is open to the kitchen, which has a grey Carrara marble waterfall countertop and a farmhouse basin sink. Up the slatted stairs, the landing doubles as a usable bonus space between the two bedroom suites, the larger of which has a walk-in closet with washer/dryer. The backyard has a stone patio covered by a pergola with swing, and a pebbled path framing the lawn area. The house also has a huge driveway, and the lower level provides raw storage space and has separate access to the backyard.

Customizable Corner House in Historic Hyattsville

This bungalow sits on a corner lot in Historic Hyattsville less than a mile from the future Hyattsville Crossing Metro station. Past the front porch and through the glass front door, the interior has an efficient layout and room to add living space. There is a suggestion of a doorway between the living room and the wide galley kitchen, which has tiled floors and granite countertops. The formal dining room on the other side has paned french doors leading out to the roomy backyard, and access to the third bedroom/bonus room. The other two bedrooms and bathroom are off the living room on the other side of the main level. The fenced-in backyard has a wooden raised deck and a driveway leads to a detached garage. The house also has an unfinished lower level ripe for customization.
