A Sears-Kit Craftsman in Silver Spring

On a corner lot over in the Woodside Park neighborhood of Silver Spring, this bungalow is a nearly century-old example of prefabricated home construction: a Sears-kit Craftsman. The renovated house has a partially-covered porch that wraps two sides, abutting an L-shaped sunroom with nearly floor-to-ceiling windows and Saltillo tile flooring. The house retains its original oak floors and has stained chestnut trim throughout the main level. The living room features leaded windows, including a pair above built-ins sandwiching a buff-colored brick fireplace. The kitchen has access to a deep den/breakfast room with a box window big enough to sit in. One bedroom has floor-to-ceiling built-ins on either side of windows, while another has a walk-in closet and an attached sunroom-like den with pitched ceiling. The house also has ample yard space, an elevator, and an attached garage.

Right on Brookland's 12th Street strip, this one-bedroom condo in the pet-friendly Oak Terrace building offers indoor/outdoor living at an affordable price. The open-concept living area is through an archway to the left of the entry foyer. A bright, U-shaped kitchen nook has farmhouse-style white cabinetry with granite countertops, a hood above the stove, a built-in wine rack and a farmhouse double sink, and is separated from the living area only by a breakfast bar. The living room has recessed built-in shelves in one corner perpendicular to a window and a glass-paned door that opens onto a private screened-in porch protruding from the red brick exterior. The bedroom is on the other side of the entry hall and also houses the bathroom.
