Capitol Views From a Capitol Hill Condo

This two bedroom condo sits on the top floor of an elevator-accessible Beaux Arts building in the Stanton Park area, enjoying views of the Capitol. The open concept main area takes advantage of the bonus space created by a six-sided bay window, as well as a fireplace and skylight towards the middle of the room. The kitchen is a separate nook with a pass-through window/breakfast bar above additional counter space, across from the electric stove. A combination washer/dryer sits beneath shelving in the kitchen pantry. The first bedroom has two windows and two closets, while the second bedroom has an angular configuration. The unit also comes with a separate storage space in the basement.

A Shaw Rowhouse with Hidden Depths

On a hidden block just inside Shaw, this turn-of-the-century two-story rowhouse blends in with the surrounding, flat-fronted housing stock. However, a developer nearly doubled the home's interior space with a rear addition, while giving it a contemporary facelift. As a result, the open concept main level has polished concrete floors and has sightlines from the front entrance to the rear sliding doors. A closet and powder room are built in beneath the staircase, sitting across from the sleek kitchen with a massive island breakfast bar. The skylit upstairs landing leads to two of the bedrooms, each with a full bath, and has a deep nook which can serve as office space. The third bedroom sits on the partial third floor, providing access to a large den with a wet bar. The paver-clad rear patio is bordered with horizontal wood fencing and also leads to a parking pad.

Surprises Around Every Corner in Hyattsville

Around the corner and down the street from the Hyattsville Arts District, this Craftsman sits beyond a white lattice fence and manicured lawn, with a petite porch outside the front door. To the left off the entry hallway, the living room sits past a double-wide entryway and has a white-painted shiplap ceiling. Around the corner and past the dining area, the kitchen has a subway-tiled backsplash and the stove fitted into a breakfast bar/island with range hood. The laundry area and a full bath sit around the corner from the kitchen, while a deep family room, with two series of windows meeting in the far corner, lies two steps down. The backyard is surprisingly generous and has a detached shed and covered parking.
