A Master Gardener's Expanded Takoma Park Bungalow
The centerpiece of this four-bedroom home in Takoma Park may actually be on the outside.

The interior is decked out with hardwood flooring throughout, large windows, fireplaces, built-ins and skylights. One of UrbanTurf's favorite spaces is the side space above that looks like a great place to read a book or take a nap.

Greece or Capitol Hill?
The image of the pool above may have many readers thinking of the Mediterranean. However, the pool and architecture reminiscent of a Greek island are actually part of a two-bedroom listing that just hit the market off East Capitol Street. The aesthetic continues inside with terra cotta floor tiles, a number of open light filled spaces and arches for many of the home's balconies. It is the first time that the home has been on the market in almost 20 years.
