Best New Listings: A Rockville Home Unlike Any Other

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes a mid-century modern home in Rockville and a modern 19th century home in Mount Vernon Square.


A Rockville Home Unlike Any Other

This mid-century house in Rockville is unlike the vast majority of homes that one would find on the market in the DC region. A wide circular driveway is partially covered by a massive overhang which extends from above the front doors. A renovation completed last year created an ultra-contemporary interior that starts with a sitting room-sized foyer with a double-sided floating fireplace. The kitchen has a huge refrigerator in addition to a series of twos: two dishwashers, two wine refrigerators, two sinks. A large pass-through window looks into the expansive open dining/living room, which features three trios of oversized stacked windows. The owner's suite, as well as two other bedrooms, are on the main level, while there are another two bedrooms and 2.5 baths on the lower level. The house also comes with a detached two-car garage.

A 19th-Century Victorian on M Street

Around the corner from the Convention Center, this four-story Victorian conceals transitional style behind its traditional façade. Modern built-ins sit on either side of the living room's wood-burning fireplace, which is next to a bay window and open to a dining area beyond with built-in bar. The kitchen has wood-grain cabinetry, an exposed brick decorative fireplace, a mirrored backsplash, and a bay window breakfast nook with built-in banquette, as well as a door to a small rear porch above a paver patio. The three bedrooms have features like tall windows and floating shelves, and the owner's bedroom also has a fireplace. The uppermost landing doubles as an office space and offers access to a rooftop terrace. The house also has a garage door-accessible parking pad.

2,600 Square Feet on the C&O Canal

Overlooking the C&O Canal in the Palisades, this updated three-bedroom has a garden-like front yard sloping down from its covered front porch. The open living/dining room just inside has triple exposure and a flagstone fireplace, and there is a butler's pantry with sink along the hallway just beyond the dining area. Windows converge in the corner above the sink in the spacious eat-in kitchen, which also has open shelves and a 6-eye stovetop beneath a commercial-sized hood and flagstone tile backsplash. A screened-in porch overlooks the fenced-in backyard and pond. The owner's bedroom sits under a cove ceiling and has triple exposure courtesy of the en-suite bath, which also has a bidet and a skylit shower stall with a cubby built into its subway-tiled walls.
