This week’s Best New Listings includes three-, four-, and five-bedroom houses in Cheverly, Chevy Chase, and Cleveland Park.
First Time's the Charm for Chevy Chase Five-Bedroom
This ultra-modern house in Chevy Chase's Town of Somerset is the first home designed by DC architect Marilyn Stern. Its owner was also once precinct chair for the Democratic Party, hosting political events attended by or hosted for the likes of Tim Kaine and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. The house uses sharp angles and gridded windows to great effect, including in the foyer with its 18-foot ceilings. The living room also has double-height ceilings and floor-to-ceiling window walls on two sides with a door opening to the covered terrace. Past the dining area beyond, a fireplace faces a breakfast nook, and the galley kitchen has a more retro feel with white cabinetry topped with a red-orange counter with an integrated cooktop. Upstairs, built-in shelving lines the mezzanine-like hall, and each of the bedrooms have nearly wall-to-wall stacked windows and built-ins. The house also has a terraced, garden-like backyard.

A Mid-Century Cape Cod in Cheverly
This red brick house in Cheverly is set on a hill, its covered porch enjoying a bench swing. The living room has a white painted brick-framed gas fireplace and is open to the L-shaped kitchen which has white subway-tiled backsplash and a hood above the oven. Post-and-lintels frame the breakfast area on two sides, preserving open sightlines, and glass pane doors open onto the deck, past which the backyard slopes upward. The spacious owner's bedroom sits under a cove ceiling and has a window nook, and white subway tiles cover most of the walls in the en-suite bath, contrasting with honeycomb-tiled flooring. The attic offers a bonus room or optional fourth bedroom, and the lower level creates a rec room and also has a full bath, a laundry room, and a narrow storage room.

These windows create a sunroom-like atmosphere in the dining area and add light to the open family room beyond. The angular owner's bedroom has a sunroom-like office attached and two dressing rooms which include features like oversized windows, extensive built-in cabinets and drawers, and plate mirrors. The house also has a lower level rec room with laundry room and temperature-controlled wine closet, a rear patio surrounding a lap pool, and a detached one-car garage.
