A Renovated Four-Bedroom in Langdon

This recently-renovated brick house in Langdon offers much more space than meets the eye. Past the front porch, the open interior creates triple exposure starting in the spacious living area. The side-by-side kitchen and dining area are separated by a built-in breakfast bar island with double sink; the kitchen also has a six-burner gas stove. Sliding glass doors lead out to a deck overlooking a yard that also has access to an alley-accessible brick garage. Upstairs, the owner's bedroom has a reading nook, double exposure, and a walk-in closet with built-ins, as well as an en-suite where the shower has wall jets. The lower level offers a one-bedroom in-law suite, complete with two separate exits and a kitchen with a stacked washer/dryer.

A Queen Anne in Cleveland Park

This turn-of-the-century Cleveland Park Queen Anne-style house was built during the Grover Cleveland administration when the neighborhood was on a trolley route. The house comes complete with a round turret surrounded by a wraparound porch, and the shape creates a rounded bay in the living room. The dining room has triple exposure and a fireplace flanked with narrow built-ins, while the family room offers access to the backyard and has a recessed display cabinet. The eat-in kitchen has access to the garden-framed backyard, where moss creeps through the expansive brick patio and there are steps down to a lawn area. The house also enjoys an upstairs balcony, a garage, and views of the National Cathedral.
