This week’s Best New Listings includes a turn-of-the-century rowhouse in Forest Hills, a rowhouse with separate suite in Trinidad, and a Del Ray farmhouse.
Closet Walls and Turn-of-the-Century Surprises
A few blocks from the Van Ness Metro station in Forest Hills, terraced gardens follow the stairs up to this turn-of-the-century home. The skylit kitchen at the back of the main level is primarily finished in white, with soapstone counters, a cooktop island and a corner banquette attached to appliance cabinets. The kitchen has french doors that lead out to a generous deck above patio and yard areas, fenced off from the parking pad beyond. One of the two bedrooms on the upper floor has a bay window, a fireplace and a wall of closets, as well as a shared bathroom with Carrera marble-topped double vanity, built-in shelving and a tiled shower stall with bench seat. On the top floor, the owner's bedroom has a closet wall and a pyramidal trio of windows, while the fourth bedroom has built-out closets and a bench built in beneath a window. The house also has a partially-finished basement with a full bath and kitchenette.

Updated in Trinidad
Spreading out at over 2,500 square feet, this Trinidad rowhouse is more spacious than its exterior suggests. Past the leaded glass front door, a partial wall provides separation from the living room, where a gas fireplace is sandwiched between a pair of built-ins above cabinets. Columns anchor the double-wide doorway to the adjacent formal dining room. The kitchen beyond has modern teak wood cabinetry, stainless steel countertops with an integrated cooktop beneath a commercial-style hood. A laundry room/mudroom leads out to a deep, bi-level paved patio and the detached garage at the back of the lot. The house also has a spacious tiled in-law suite with a separate entrance, kitchenette, bedroom and full bath.

A Three-Bedroom Farmhouse in Alexandria
Over in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, this farmhouse has a traditional and inviting exterior. The main level is arranged to the left of the entry foyer with the living room enjoying double exposure on the other side of a double-wide entryway. Through another doorway, the dining area sits beneath windows, while the spacious kitchen occupies four walls to the right. Another double-wide doorway leads out to a bright den/dining room with a back door to the flagstone patio, which has garden terraces stepping down to additional sitting and grilling areas and a storage shed. The owner's bedroom has double exposure and a bay window, along with an en-suite bath with double vanity and generous cabinetry. The carpeted lower level creates a rec room with built-in entertainment stand and also has a cedar closet.
