by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes a custom house in Georgetown's East Village and a customizable house in Alexandria's Del Ray.

All That Glitters in Georgetown

Two blocks from Wisconsin Avenue, the owners of this semi-detached, turn-of-the-century house renovated and expanded it with architect Christian Zapatka in 2017. Its interior twinkles and glistens: the salon/dining room off the checkerboard tile-floored hall has a pair of gas fireplaces beneath large mirrors and 24k gold accents along the extensive molding. The kitchen has a Carrara marble breakfast bar waterfall island and matching backsplash, a hood above the stove, and a wall of cabinets with mirror-like stainless steel framing their glass doors. The family room also has a fireplace surrounded by a built-in media center, as well as a pair of paned French doors (and several matching windows) that lead out to the backyard with patio, heated saltwater pool, and cabana. The owner's en-suite bath has mirrored walls and a standalone tub beneath a skylight, and the lower level has a studio with kitchenette and a bonus room with mirrored closets.

Adorable in Del Ray with Room to Grow

Over in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, this adorable house on a corner lot offers one-level living with the potential for more. Past the front porch and the original wood-framed exterior is a living room with double exposure, and a wide doorway leads into the formal dining room beyond with a trio of windows. Both the dining room and the one-wall kitchen lead into a hall outside the backdoor, which leads out to the semi-circular stone patio and the garden areas and shed beyond. Two bedrooms share the bathroom on the other side of the main level. A set of stairs walk directly up into the carpeted attic with pitched ceiling, storage, and an elevated seating area by one of the windows. There is also an unfinished lower level with washer/dryer hookups, and a driveway.
