A Best New Listing a Block Away

If you're getting deja vu from this listing, it may be because last week's Best New Listings featured a house just one block away. This Capitol Hill rowhouse is a bit larger and has a similarly laid-out interior with dichromatic stylings from the exterior onward. The bright home has a square bay at the front and an exposed brick wall that runs the length of the hallway from the entrance up to the second-floor landing. The basement also utilizes the bay window and includes a rec room with wet bar and a separate bedroom and bath. One egress from the basement leads to a flight of steps in a brick-lined corridor walking up to the backyard and patio.

  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5

A Petite Rowhouse Near Petworth

Tucked between two main corridors on the Northeast-Northwest border, this petite rowhouse still enjoys the peace provided by its lack of rear neighbors. The house has traditional charms, from the mini-porch to the wood-framed French doors that open into the living room, just to the left upon entry. The kitchen and dining area share space, separated by a center island with cabinets on the sides. The three bedrooms share a full bath upstairs, while the basement also has a full bath and bonus storage room. The deep, fenced-in backyard has a patio area and abuts a line of mature trees courtesy of the adjacent Rock Creek Cemetery.

Six Bedrooms in Spring Valley

This renovated Spring Valley colonial is hitting the market for the first time in over 35 years. Charming trim and wainscoting, along with double-wide and arched entryways, characterize the main level of the house. The solarium-style family room is a standout, with a series of oversized picture windows forming an arch on one wall. On the top floor, the skylit master bedroom has a cove ceiling and a wall of built-in shelving; an adjacent sitting room/extra bedroom also enjoys skylights and the cove ceiling. The basement has a rec room, a bed and bath and a mudroom with built-in shelving, and there is a sprawling backyard with mature trees and a paved patio area.

Fallingwater-Inspired in Cleveland Park

Finally, this mid-century house in Cleveland Park is impressive in its own right, with a much more dynamic style than is evident from the street. The kitchen overlooks the family room, where an upward-slanting ceiling leads to a set of clerestory windows. An adjacent breakfast area takes advantage of a circular bumpout with sets of south-facing windows all along and access to the large deck, which is also accessible from the formal dining room. The living room has a wood-paneled accent wall, a fireplace, a built-in loveseat bay and floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides. The nearly one-acre sideyard is framed with trees and also has a patio and pool.
