by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s edition of Best New Listings includes two rowhouses on G Street in separate quadrants of DC and a deceptively spacious bungalow in historic Takoma.

Bricks and Sticks Near Barracks Row

This two-story shuttered rowhouse has an exterior aesthetic typical to this Barracks Row-adjacent nook of Capitol Hill, with a brick pathway leading to the front door. Exposed wooden beams run along the ceiling throughout the open main level, which has a brick fireplace and clear sightlines from the pair of oversized windows at the front of the house to the large 5x4 window at the rear. The kitchen has white farmhouse-style cabinetry and a corner of built-in shelving. The owner's suite has an exposed brick column and custom walk-in closet, while the second bedroom has a balcony outside. At the end of the brick-paved rear patio sits a storage shed, and the house also has an attic.

A Deceptively Spacious Takoma Bungalow

This seemingly petite mustard yellow bungalow in historic Takoma actually contains nearly 3,000 square feet of living space in its deep footprint. Instead of a traditional layout, the renovated interior has an open concept living/dining room leading to an expansive eat-in kitchen where the cabinetry and appliances are arranged in an "L" above quartz countertops and interspersed with white subway tile. A door between the kitchen and living room leads to a balcony overlooking the rear yard, which also has separate access via the lower level. The owner's bedroom has double exposure and shares a full bath with another bedroom on the main floor. Another two bedrooms share a full bath on the top level, each under a cove ceiling with a wall of closets.

A Solar-Powered Atlas District Rowhouse

On the Northeast end of G Street, this rowhouse has a stained-glass archtop transom window announcing the house number. The colorful living area at the front of the main level enjoys a bench with interior storage built into the bay window, while the dining area is delineated by color-blocked paint and a paneled wall. The kitchen at the rear is another with farmhouse cabinetry in a dove grey color with coordinating subway tile backsplash. A set of french doors lead out to a concrete deck overlooking the slate patio and fenced-in rear yard. The owner's suite also has a bay with a pair of windows with transoms. The lower level has a separate front entrance and is divided equally between a rec room and sizeable storage space. The house also has a solar panel installation.
