This week’s Best New Listings includes a mid-century loft in the suburbs, a converted schoolhouse loft in the city, and a two-bedroom rowhouse around the corner.

A Mid-Century Loft Condo in Silver Spring

A couple of blocks from the DC border, this condo sits inside a house-like building that could be a poster child for missing middle housing. Past the staircase, the open living/dining room stretches along one side of the unit with a series of windows and a wood-burning fireplace beneath a vaulted ceiling with two skylights. The upstairs loft level also takes advantage of those skylights and can function as a second bedroom or other bonus space. The first bedroom, the bathroom and the closet are tucked beneath the loft on the main level. The Rock Creek Gardens community, where the unit is located, has an outdoor pool, open space, and a gazebo.

Double Exposure in Barney Circle Rowhouse

Over near the Stadium-Armory Metro stop, this wide rowhouse was renovated in 2005 and has an open concept main level, with open sightlines from the front to back creating double exposure. Weathered brick lines an accent wall and a standalone wood-burning fireplace faces the living area with a brick hearth. The kitchen is tucked in the far corner and has a glass subway tile backsplash and a breakfast bar island with integrated cooktop. A door in the kitchen leads out to a fenced-in patio with pavers, a slightly raised deck area, and a shady tree. Carpeted stairs lead up to the two bedrooms, which have a window looking from one into the other in addition to external windows.

A Schoolhouse Loft in Lincoln Park

A few blocks away near Lincoln Park is this corner loft unit in the converted historic Bryan School. The interior has exposed ductwork, 12-foot ceilings, and a chair rail along the wall has weathered brick above, surrounding the oversized gridded windows. The kitchen has a breakfast bar island and a hood concealed beneath the cabinetry, overlooking the open dining and living areas. The bedroom is concealed in the corner behind a pair of barn doors, its walls doubling as an entertainment center facing the living area. Inside the bedroom, the wall on the living room side also has cabinets beneath a recessed shelf, and the bedroom has a walk-in closet with custom shelving. The unit also comes with a parking space.
