This week’s Best New Listings includes a curvy house by KUBE, contemporized mid-century modern in Falls Church, and a former This Week's Find in Stanton Park.
Curve's the Word in Petworth
You wouldn't guess it from the exterior, but this Petworth house has been completely redone by KUBE Architecture. The results are curvy and wood-clad, starting with the wood framing that delineates the entry hall from the rest of the main level. The kitchen ceiling has a curved dropped portion along the wall, and the bedrooms and bathrooms also have curved walls. The house also has a front porch, a roof terrace, a rear deck, a patio/parking pad, and a partially-finished lower level.

Contemporized Mid-Century Modern
Courtesy of Arlington Modern, the mid-century modern vernacular of this Falls Church house has been contemporized. This is most evident in the open-concept main level, where the vaulted ceiling has a wood I-beam at the center and three skylights traversing the peak. A double-sided, rhombus-shaped fireplace is shared between the front living area and a secluded family room with triple exposure courtesy of contiguous near-floor-to-ceiling windows. A bedroom suite on the main level has skylights, a dressing room, and open access to a glass-enclosed bathroom with a walk-in spa shower.

A Former UT Find in Stanton Park
UrbanTurf first shared the history of this 19th century carriage-house-to-residential conversion in Stanton Park a few years ago, a property that was formerly used for horse-and-buggy repair. Now, the two-level interior includes radiant concrete floor heating on the main level, original exposed ceiling beams and skylights, and salvaged finishings like the handrails on the second floor landing and a set of closet doors by the entrance that once graced a garage near the convention center. The house also has a circular court/patio/parking pad at the entrance.

- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Three
- Square Feet: 2,010
