This week’s Best New Listings include a converted duplex with dual entry, a turn-of-the-century colonial in Kensington, and an Arlington bungalow with an accessory building.
Turn-of-the-Century Kensington Colonial
Just off Connecticut Avenue in Kensington, the first thing that greets people at this turn-of-the-century home is the low-slung wraparound porch with a swing. Through the front door is the living room with a wood-burning brick fireplace, and then past a set of pocket doors, the dining room has a bay with a paned glass door on one side and glass doors on the other, both leading onto the porch. Perhaps the most impressive part of the house is its extensive kitchen, occupying two rooms with an integrated stovetop and sink beneath floating cabinets in one area and the fridge around the corner, united by tiled floors, extensive cabinetry and abundant granite counter space. The adjacent breakfast area has shelves built into the double-wide window. The house also has a garage.

A Dual-Entry Duplex in Adams Morgan
Over in the Reed-Cooke area of Adams Morgan, this industrial-style duplex is one of nine units converted out of what was once a telephone switchboard building. The open concept main level has vaulted concrete ceilings, exposed exhaust pipe and a wood-burning standalone fireplace in one corner. The kitchen occupies the opposite corner with a pentagonal breakfast bar island and cabinets with lacquered, frosted glass and stainless steel doors. There is also a full bath and washer/dryer on this floor, while a set of stairs lead directly down into the bedroom, which also has a tiled en-suite bath. A separate exit in the bedroom leads outside to a patio area. The unit also comes with an assigned parking space and is in a pet-friendly building.

An Arlington Bungalow with Accessory Building
On a corner lot just off Arlington Boulevard in Lyon Park, this bungalow has a full-length front porch with arches on either side. The house enters into the living room with a gas fireplace between a pair of windows. The formal dining room sits through a doorway to the left, while the carpeted family room is through another doorway straight ahead, complete with a pitched ceiling with exposed painted ceiling beams. The bright blue and white kitchen has matching tiled flooring, a skylight, access to the powder room and a side door that leads out to a rear deck with a hot tub. One of the upstairs bedrooms has access to a sunroom-like bonus room with triple exposure, while another bedroom has a skylit pitched ceiling and a ladder up to a loft area. The backyard has a brick-paved patio area leading to a detached garage with an attached skylit studio. The house also has an unfinished basement and a partially-finished attic.
