Semi-Detached, Blocks from the Border

This semi-detached house sits just a couple of blocks from the Maryland border in Friendship Heights, and is a relatively affordably option in an otherwise pricey neighborhood. An open grid partitions off the bright living room from the entryway. Next is a formal dining room with chair rail; on one side, a galley kitchen with checkerboard flooring, and on the other side, a den with checkerboard flooring and white-painted brick accent wall. The owner's bedroom has double exposure and a seating nook, while the second bedroom has an attached den/playroom and shares a jack-and-jill bathroom with the third bedroom. The basement offers a large rec room. The backyard has a patio area connected to a path that winds through an ivy-rich garden.

A One-Bedroom Rowhouse on a Hidden Block

Just off the H Street Corridor, this flat-fronted one-bedroom rowhouse is a hidden gem tucked onto a hidden block. The narrow house enters into a living room with a modern built-in shelving nook. Exposed brick extends from the living room and houses the floating staircase, while an L-shaped kitchen with under-counter lighting hugs the opposite wall and provides a breakfast bar. The bedroom occupies the upstairs landing, its 11 foot vaulted ceiling interrupted by a built-in shelf creating wrap-around storage. A built-in wardrobe and dresser separate the bedroom from the en-suite bath. The house also has an attached shed, accessible from the deep rear brick patio.

Charm Built Into this Shaw Rowhouse

In Shaw, French doors open into the living room of this Victorian rowhouse, with its brick panel fireplace and bay window. Dark-stained trim adds visual interest in this room and in the formal dining room, where it also highlights a chair rail and a series of frame molding beneath. The kitchen has subway-tiled accent walls framing white and glazed cabinetry, an integrated gas cooktop with hood, farmhouse sink and stacked built-in ovens. The owner's bedroom has an exposed brick accent wall, bay window, and another window book-ended by built-in shelving. A lower level bonus room could be an office or fourth bedroom with en-suite, also providing direct access to the bi-level rear patio surrounded by horizontal wood fencing and a seamlessly built-in shed.
