This week’s Best New Listings includes a Thomas Circle co-op, a Capitol Hill Queen Anne rowhouse, and a Rappahannock County converted church.
A Renovated Co-op Near Thomas Circle
A block off Thomas Circle, this renovated turn-of-the-century co-op unit is full of charming finishes. The one-bedroom has tall windows throughout, and the living room has a wall accented with decorative frame molding opposite a half-wall of built-ins. A diner-sized window, with a cabinet with frosted door on either side, looks into the kitchen and provides a ledge that appears propped up above vertical trim. Subway tile covers parts of the kitchen walls, including in an open pantry area, with the exception of some green tilework around the oven and an accent slat wall that doubles as hanging storage. The bedroom has a walk-through closet with organizational system, leading into the en-suite bath with tiles covering most of the walls. The co-op fee includes utilities and taxes.

A Wood-Paneled Capitol Hill Rowhouse
Midway between Lincoln Park and Seward Square, the interior of this rowhouse retains much of its turn-of-the-century style, with a tiled vestibule and restored wood trim, molding, floors and doors. The living room has a round bay window and fireplace, and at the base of the stairs, there is a sitting area with floor-to-ceiling wood paneling flanking an ornate wood-framed fireplace. The spacious chef's kitchen breaks from this traditional style with white floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, heavy vein Calacatta marble backsplash and countertops, and tall glass paned doors under arched transom windows, leading out to a deck and brick-paved patio. The owner's bedroom also has the round bay window, along with a deep walk-in closet, and another upstairs bedroom has a private balcony. The uppermost level offers a rec room with Murphy bed and wet bar, and a sitting area has a stair winding up to a roof deck. The house also has a separately metered two-bedroom, 1.5-bath lower level and a solar array.

A Converted Church in Rappahannock County
Although this 18th century church-turned-house is closer to West Virginia than it is to DC, the property was too interesting to pass up. The "Battle Run Primitive Baptist Church" sign introduces the gravel driveway up to the house, which sits on 1.44 acres and was converted by designer Daniel J. Moore in the past year. Past its almost monastic exterior, the interior is sleek, with ebony-stained trim and ceiling beams in the foyer. The open living/dining room has 17 foot-tall ceilings and the kitchen is fitted beneath the stairs, with cabinets, the island base, the fridge cladding, and the backsplash is composed of contrasting custom salvaged barn wood blocks. The owner's suite on the main level has views of the Blue Ridge mountains, a dressing room closet, and a hotel-inspired en-suite with a recessed spa-like shower with a second bench area and separate water closet.
