This week’s Best New Listings includes a rowhouse in Fairlawn, a loft-like house in Takoma Park, and a mid-century modern house in Hollin Hills.
Loft-Like Off Takoma Park's Main Drag

Both bedrooms on the main level have double exposure, and the owner's suite has a tall cove ceiling and a deep walk-in closet. There is also a rear screened-in porch with a pitched ceiling, a built-in Murphy-style table, and outdoor shower. The house comes with a driveway for six months of the year (a neighbor gets the other half).

A Rowhouse Near Anacostia Park
This three-bedroom listing is in the Fairlawn neighborhood, a quick ride from Anacostia Park and its trails. Past the bright living room, an archway leads into the eat-in kitchen, which has a dining area on one side and floating shelves, cabinetry surrounding the fridge, and a farmhouse basin sink behind the breakfast bar island. A door leads down to the backyard and patio area. Back in the living room, an archway frames the stairs with a closet on the landing. The bright bedrooms upstairs, one of which has a nook with closets nearly to the ceiling, share a skylit bath. The lower level has a carpeted rec room with built-ins in one nook, another full bath, and a separate laundry room.

Fireplace- and Window-Walls in Hollin Hills
Over in Hollin Hills, this house is another exemplar of mid-century modern architecture. Past the deck-like front porch and in the open-concept interior, the dining area has a series of windows stacked nearly floor-to-ceiling, and the kitchen has butcher block countertops and a hood and red-orange glass backsplash with a pot-filler spout above the stovetop. The living area has a brick fireplace wall adjacent to a wall of windows with sliding glass doors out to a deck that spans the length of the room. Both bedrooms on this level have nearly floor-to-ceiling windows, and the wood-paneled staircase has an oversized window with a display ledge beneath. The carpeted, at-grade lower level has another pair of bedrooms and a rec room with a brick fireplace wall adjacent to a wall of stacked windows and access to a covered patio. The backyard has a stone pond, terraced garden areas, and a shed.
