The Character and the Bright Blue House

This bright blue house in Woodridge has been re-skinned and given a charming interior renovation. The front porch runs the width of the house and has a bench swing, and the entrance leads directly into the living room, which has triple exposure. A double-wide archway leads into the formal dining room, which has easy access to a sleek, retro-modern kitchen with royal blue accents, white countertops, tucked-away pantry space, and cabinetry with royal blue and frosted doors. The kitchen has access to a bi-level deck overlooking the deep, fenced-in backyard. Upstairs, the owner's suite also has triple exposure. The lower level contains the laundry room and a rec room where the exposed pipes and boarding are painted to blend in with the white ceiling, contrasting with a royal blue support beam. A detached shed at the back of the property is painted to match the house, aside from a spray-painted character across the door.

Two Bays in a Beaux-Arts Two-Bedroom

While this condo is in Adams Morgan, the impressive (and delightfully symmetrical) Beaux-Arts building where it is located is closer to Rock Creek than to the neighborhood's main drag. The unit enters into a long hall leading to a living room with a wall of built-ins. Through a door, the kitchen has a bi-level, pentagonal breakfast bar/island and an exposed brick wall where the bricks form arches above the windows. A wide doorway is open to the dining room, which has a bay window. The owner's suite also has a bay window, along with a wall of closets; the latter feature is also found in the second bedroom. The building also offers a dedicated basement storage space for this two-bedroom.

Custom Built-ins and Seven Bedrooms in Chevy Chase

This seven-bedroom Chevy Chase home has a lush front lawn and a front porch with a bench swing. A set of French doors off the foyer open into the living room, where the inserted gas fireplace is flanked by windows above square built-ins. The large formal dining room has a bay window and a chair rail, and the family room has an L-shaped built-in framing the base of what serves as a desk in the abutting, naturally-illuminated breakfast room. The adjacent kitchen has a double Viking stove beneath a hood, concrete countertops and a stainless steel island. In the owner's bedroom, there is a bay window, cove ceiling and a built-in media console. The sink area of the en-suite bath is open to a dressing area, while the shower is tiled floor-to-ceiling and the tub is separately enclosed behind glass.
