by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes a historic house in Hollin Hills, a hilltop house in Brookland, and a hidden bed in Logan Circle.


A Hilltop, Four-Story Four-Bedroom

An ivy-covered hillside slopes up to this four-bedroom Brookland farmhouse. The main level is arranged to the left of the entry hall, with a column-framed entryway separating the front living room from the formal dining room. The galley kitchen contrasts grey countertops with white cabinetry and leads to a breakfast room with a closet wall and triplet window, as well as a door to the garden-framed backyard with a brick-paved patio. On the second story, an open family room has a bowed wall and a set of built-ins. The uppermost level is split between two rooms beneath skylit cove ceilings, and the lower level has a full bedroom with built-in shelving and cubbies. The house also has a detached two-car garage.

And After All, You're My Window Wall

Located in the Hollin Hills neighborhood of Alexandria, this five-bedroom is one of the larger homes designed by prolific architect Charles Goodman. The house has a wrap-around deck accessible from much of the main level. The L-shaped open concept living/dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows covering opposite walls, along with a wood-paneled accent wall across from a brick wall with a fireplace. Steps away, the skylit kitchen has a waterfall butcher block breakfast bar and butcher block countertops, as well as a wine fridge. The owner's bedroom, which sits at-grade, has six floor-to-ceiling windows converging in the far corner. A rec room on this level has an exposed brick accent wall with a fireplace and firewood storage nook, with a wall of windows and glass doors providing access to a covered patio. The lush backyard also has a raised deck built around a few mature trees.

A Wall-Bed and a Below-Grade Patio in the Middle of Logan

This Logan Circle studio has much more storage than meets the eye. The living area of the unit has a custom wall-bed unit, with built-in shelving flanking a Murphy bed; an additional set of drawers is built out of the opposite wall. A glass door and a nearly ceiling-height window let in natural light and provide access to a private patio. A full-sized, stacked washer/dryer in the hall sits next to a generous L-shaped pantry, and a spacious walk-in closet/dressing room has a built-in vanity and is lined with built-in drawers, shelves and racks. One side of the bookcase on the bed unit opens to provide access to a concealed, deep storage unit. Both the bathroom and the kitchen are finished with marble, and the latter also has a Mahogany butcher block above the wine fridge.
