Sunrooms Near the C&O Canal
A couple blocks from the C&O Canal in Glen Echo is this turreted cottage with a wrap-around porch. Inside the home, the turret creates a sunroom-like living area with french windows opposite the fireplace. A sitting area leads into the kitchen, overlooking a sitting room on one side and creating a breakfast bar on the other side. Two bedrooms share a bathroom on the main level, one of which enjoys a bed alcove and extra space from a turret interior, while the other has a pitched ceiling, two sets of floor-to-ceiling built-ins, and french doors out to the rear flagstone paved patio. The owner's bedroom occupies the upper level with a wall of walk-in closets, double exposure, a built-in L-shaped bench and an en-suite bath.
