A Three-Bedroom Brightwood Bungalow

The living room at the front of the home has a white brick fireplace and also houses the staircase.

The three bedrooms upstairs share a full bathroom; the basement has the second full bathroom and the laundry room. Additional outdoor space can be found in the fenced-in back- and side-yards.

An Open Two-Bedroom with Extra Storage

This nearly 1,100 square-foot two-bedroom condo sits at the southern end of Adams Morgan. In the largely open, L-shaped floorplan, the living room centers around a symmetrical wall of built-ins and track lighting. A column delineates this space from the tray-ceilinged hallway and the adjacent kitchen, which has four windows, tiled backsplash, under-cabinet lighting and a breakfast bar island that doubles the amount of counter space. The spacious main bedroom has three windows and a pair of closets, each behind French doors. The unit also comes with additional storage.

More Spacious Than Its Square Footage

This flat-fronted two-story rowhouse is typical of the Near Northeast hidden one-way block on which it sits. The open concept interior has an exposed red brick wall along the right side of the main level and, between the living area and the staircase, an exposed red brick column with a built-in alcove. The brick walls are painted white around the angled kitchen, which has frosted and open cabinetry and space for a dining area along the opposite wall. Just beyond, the hallway to the back door again lays the red brick bare and provides plenty of room for extra storage. Upstairs, both bedrooms have angled walls and exposed red brick accents. The closet space in the main bedroom sits behind white panels with concealed handles, while the second bedroom has access to a wooden deck above the rear concrete patio.
