This week’s Best New Listings includes an architect-owned Bloomingdale rowhouse, a converted schoolhouse condo, and a log cabin on a six-acre wooded plot.
An Architect's Bloomingdale Rowhome
In many ways, this Victorian rowhouse is like the prototypical Bloomingdale dwelling; in others, it is evident that an architect had a hand in making specific updates. For example, the living room has a contemporary corner gas fireplace that retains its traditional wooden mantel with a built-in mirror. The master bedroom upstairs has a painted brick accent wall and a barn door concealing the en-suite with skylit shower stall. And the dining room has an exposed brick wall and a wet bar beneath a pass-through window to the minimalist kitchen, which has two sinks and a row of windows taking the place of a backsplash. The house also has a lower-level storage room and a separate one-bedroom English basement unit containing a small den and a U-shaped kitchen with farmhouse sink.

A Secluded Log Cabin on Six Acres in Rockville
Over in the Old Georgetown Estates area of Maryland, this four-bedroom log cabin sits alone at the end of a gravel driveway on a wooded six-acre plot with two streams winding through. The rustic aesthetic is maintained both outside and inside the house, which has a completely open main living area with white-painted beams traversing the ceiling and a standalone fireplace comprised of stones carried from the streams on the property. A sun-filled, wood-paneled hallway has tiled floors and direct access to a rear wooden deck, one of many outdoor garden and patio spaces surrounding the house. An office is attached to the house and has a separate entrance, clerestory windows and a wall of built-ins.

A Loft in Atlas District Schoolhouse
This two-bedroom condo is in a converted turn-of-the-century schoolhouse now known as the Lovejoy Lofts. The high-ceilinged corner unit has white-washed brick throughout, which, coupled with exposed pipes and exhaust, lend the unit an industrial aesthetic. The kitchen and bedroom walls stop feet beneath the ceiling, lending legitimacy to the "loft" moniker. Multiple chalkboards in the unit reference the building's prior purpose. Weathered exposed brick lines the condo's entry hallway, which also features an archtop alcove. The unit also comes with an assigned surface parking space and an in-unit laundry and storage room.
