A Spacious Rancher in Chevy Chase

This three-bedroom rancher sits behind a manicured front lawn two blocks from one of Chevy Chase's major intersections. A flagstone panel fireplace and exposed wooden beams along the vaulted ceiling anchor the living area of the open-concept main room. The U-shaped kitchen sits in one corner of the main room, overlooking a breakfast area beneath a cove ceiling illuminated by a series of near floor-to-ceiling windows. The owner's suite has double exposure and over-sized windows, in addition to access to an L-shaped, covered rear porch; the second and third bedrooms also have private access to the porch. The house has an attached garage and an unfinished basement with separate access to the fenced-in backyard.

An Outsized Amount of Space in Brookland

In the heart of the Brookland neighborhood, this deceptively spacious craftsman takes advantage of rear additions and a surprisingly expansive back yard. The house enters into the living room with white-painted brick fireplace opposite a wall of built-ins partially concealing the staircase. An archway leads into the formal dining room, which also accommodates the breakfast bar portion of the bi-level kitchen countertops. The kitchen has an integrated cooktop beneath stainless steel hood and tiled backsplash; the oven is stacked amid built-in shelving across from a wet bar. Both the kitchen and dining room open to the adjacent family room that has a stone panel fireplace and triple exposure. The lower level has a kitchenette which, along with the full bath, allows the basement to double as a studio in-law suite.

French Doors Galore in a Kalorama Condo

From the street, the property housing this Kalorama condo reads like a pair of duplex units. This two-bedroom condo occupies one level of the interior and enjoys many house-like features. There is a bay with oversized windows at one end of the living/dining room, with an angled white brick fireplace sitting next to a set of french doors with leaded glass panels. On the other side of those doors, a recently-renovated kitchen with slate tiled floors contrasts white cabinetry with granite countertops and grey tiled backsplashes. Another set of french doors opens from the kitchen into the second bedroom, where a fireplace with tiled surround and mantle with built-in mirror sits flanked by oversized windows. Another set of french doors stretch nearly floor-to-ceiling courtesy of a transom, leading out to a porch-like balcony. The unit also comes with a garage parking space.
