A Historic Alley Carriage House 

Renovated in 2011, this carriage house is home to the owners of the U Street vintage and antique shop Good Wood and it shows. The entrance through Blagden Alley opens to the main living space, adorned in vintage brick and patterned wallpaper. The kitchen has mixed textures with marble and metal counter space, as well as commercial grade appliances. Though recessed, the room gets a fair amount of natural light because of its connection to a large walk-out garden space. The bedroom space has a sizeable built-in library, and skylights allow for another source of natural light, beyond the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the street. An upstairs patio connects to the bedroom and features privacy curtains and ample room for patio furniture.

A Takoma Park Bungalow

This two-story bungalow has lots of space that could be creatively put to any number of uses. In the back of the home, the kitchen has counter space that doubles as a pop-out breakfast bar. The primary suite is located across from the dining room and has a bathroom with storybook wallpaper and a large multi-use tub, along with an office space featuring an extra storage closet. The entryway living room has a stone fireplace and room for a piano. Downstairs, another room could be suited for use as a studio or sunroom. UrbanTurf's favorite feature of the home is the ample outdoor space with a garden in the front and a grassy play space in the back.
