by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes four-bedrooms in Hyattsville and Kensington, and a theatrical rowhouse in Dupont Circle.


Inside-Out Theatrical Design in Dupont Circle

Previously owned by late theater photographer George De Vincent, this Victorian rowhouse in Dupont Circle has an interior as dramatic as the concrete arch framing its double front door. Past the tiled-floor vestibule, a double-height great room has an accent wall that evokes an alley exterior with exposed brick surrounding windows. The family room/dining room has a step-up seating nook with stacked windows, and the L-shaped farmhouse kitchen has double sinks converging at the corner. Upstairs, two bedrooms share a bath that seems carved out of stone, with a glazed breezeway and a curved rectangular window. Past glass doors on the uppermost level, the owner's bedroom has a bay window, a step-up dressing area, and access to a private terrace. The house also has a two-car parking pad and a carpeted lower level.

A Kensington Cape Cod 

This expanded Cape Cod sits a short drive from both Beach Drive and Connecticut Avenue in Kensington. The entry foyer leads to a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, and the main level has two bedrooms, each with double exposure. The kitchen has a reverse osmosis water system and triple exposure courtesy of the adjacent dining area, separated by a peninsula island with cobalt blue base. A mudroom area has been fashioned near the backdoor, with additional shelving built in beneath the stairs. At the top of the skylit stairwell, the landing has white painted brick walls and the bedrooms share a bath with color-blocked tiles. The lower level has a weathered brick fireplace, a spacious bonus room, and a full bath/laundry room. The backyard has a slate patio with brick fireplace, fruit trees, and a covered bench swing steps from the detached garage.

Turn of the Century in Hyattsville

Past the pillared front porch, this spacious late 19th-century Hyattsville house has reclaimed hardwood floors and original windows, and the main level hallway has recessed shelving in a decorative door frame beneath a transom window. The family room has a brick fireplace and is separated from the dining room with the suggestion of a doorway. The kitchen has dual-entry beneath two stained glass transoms, and is open to the living room, each with skylights. The living room has a horizontal brick panel and a standalone fireplace, along with paned glass doors out onto a platform deck surrounded by a spacious yard. The main level also has a bedroom and a half-bath next door to a spacious laundry room with shower stall, while the three bedrooms upstairs have dual entry. The house also has a 420 square-foot lower level and a detached studio.
