This week’s Best New Listings includes a rowhouse in the shadow of the Hill and a mid-century Bethesda house.
A Hidden Rowhouse in the Heart of the Hill
This Capitol Hill rowhouse is one of a handful of homes that could be described as being "in the shadow of the Capitol", located on a hidden brick-paved cul-de-sac a half-block from the Supreme Court. Inside the nearly 1,000 square-foot house, the living room has a pair of built-in shelving units that create a nook, and a wood-burning fireplace. The dining room is tucked across from the stairs and an alcove is large enough to accommodate an office area. The full bath on this level has a brick accent wall and a clawfoot tub beneath a large glass block window. The galley kitchen has white subway tile-and-beadboard backsplash, butcher block countertops, a built-in wine rack, and a paned glass door opens out to the dual-access fenced-in rear patio. Upstairs, the two bedrooms share a skylit bathroom.

A Mid-Century Split-Level in Bethesda
The open-concept main level of this four-bedroom has a tall, half-cove ceiling with a skylight on either side, and the upper level is a handful of stairs up with a gallery overlooking the living/dining area. The kitchen has a walnut-topped bar on three sides of the island, where a stainless steel hood floats above the stovetop. The owner's bedroom has a wall of closets and an en-suite bath with double sink, and the other two bedrooms upstairs share a jack-and-jill bathroom. The lower level has a rec room with concrete floors, along with a family room with a painted brick wall that houses a recessed fireplace and sliding glass doors out to the flagstone patio and surrounding yard. Also on the lower level is an office/bonus room with exterior access and an additional bedroom suite.
