This week’s Best New Listings include a Silver Spring three-bedroom, a master gardener's bungalow in Takoma Park and a Capitol Hill home that wouldn't look out of place in the Mediterranean. 

First Time in 50 Years

This Silver Spring three-bedroom, on the market for the first time in five decades, greets visitors with a welcoming front porch and pastel-colored front door. The living room has a fireplace and the farmhouse-style kitchen features double windows, large windows and a good-sized pantry. Out back is a flagstone patio and a deep backyard, and the lower level has been fully finished with a small bar that conveys.

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 owner is a master gardener who has created nearly 7,500 square feet of gardens and landscaping surrounding the house. 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. 

  • Full Listing: 20 7th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $1,599,950
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Three
