Best New Listings: An Esteemed Artist’s Rowhouse, Clean on the Inside, Quirky on the Outside

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes an English basement in Logan Circle, an expanded cottage in Arlington, and a painted lady with a former painter owner.


Clean on the Inside, Quirky on the Outside

This painted lady rowhouse in Mount Pleasant has a striking street presence. Previously owned by abstract artist Sam Gilliam, the interior of the house is equally striking in a more sleek and simple manner. Built-in display cabinets with glass shelves create partitions throughout the main level, and a fireplace alcove in the living room anchors a circular built in couch. The formal dining room enjoys light from two picture windows and sits under a white coffered ceiling with bright accents, while the recently renovated kitchen has matching floor and backsplash tiles. Both the owner's bedroom and the fourth bedroom upstairs have separate sitting areas, while the second bedroom has access to a balcony above a covered rear porch. The house also has a deep brick patio, a finished lower level and a two-car garage.

Built Ins and Sun Rooms in Arlington

Around the corner from Greenbrier Park in Arlington, this four-bedroom mid-century house was renovated by architect Mark Coupard. The foyer has floor tiles sourced from Vermont slate, and the living room has a stone clad gas fireplace. A U-shaped kitchen with an angled breakfast bar and custom lighting also has a wall of built ins which extend around the corner into the skylit great room, which provides space for both sitting and dining areas and features a series of oversized windows which meet at one corner, akin to a sunroom. The bedrooms upstairs also have built ins, including a dresser in the third bedroom and a study carrel in the fourth. Another bedroom and bath are on the main floors, and the tiled floor basement has a full bath and a separate laundry room. A screened porch also adds a sunroom vibe, overlooking the slate rear patio, framed with stone features which bend into the side yard.
