This week’s installment of Best New Listings includes a Rosslyn penthouse, a forest-framed house in Forest Hills, and a Cape Cod in Alexandria.
A Penthouse Loft with Private Terrace
Over in Rosslyn, this penthouse at The Wooster has an open-concept living area with exposed exhaust, concrete ceilings, and industrial-style gridded windows occupying most of the far wall. The ceiling extends to double-height above the dining area, and the kitchen has red mosaic tile walls, a breakfast bar island, a built-in bar with wine fridge, and a stainless steel commercial hood and backsplash above the integrated cooktop. The bedroom has a sitting nook with an accent wall of exposed brick that, along with pillars in the living area, is sourced from DC's former Capitol Children's Museum. A water feature is built in at the base of the slatted stairs, and another set of gridded windows are at the top. The L-shaped private rooftop terrace has a built-in sound system and with a gas grill and outdoor furniture. The unit also comes with a second full bath, a den with exposed brick accent wall, and a tandem parking space.

The living room has a decorative fireplace beneath a butcher block mantel, a powder room, and access to a sleeping porch with a series of windows on two sides.

Park in the Back, Fountain in the Front
Abutting Linnean Park in Forest Hills, this mid-century house was once owned by the Kreeger Musuem family. There is a fountain alongside the flagstone path to the front door, and the cantilevered roof awning is referenced with the ceiling in the foyer, which extends into a trapezoidal ledge in the adjacent living room. Wooden slats also provide sightlines between the foyer and living room, and in the latter, another trapezoidal ledge creates a mantel above the recessed fireplace surrounded by stone, and a series of near-floor-to-ceiling windows sit between two sets of french doors out to a spacious courtyard with mature trees. A library has wood-paneled walls on three sides, and the owner's bedroom has built-ins on either side of the door to the spa-like en-suite bath. The house also has a lower level with a rec room, bedroom, and full bath, and a two-car garage.
