This week’s Best New Listings includes a villa in Hillcrest, a one-bedroom house in Old Town, and a farmhouse in Chevy Chase.
Villa Living in Hillcrest
Built by a stonemason, this villa-style house was one of the first houses constructed in Hillcrest, and it boasts many Mediterranean flourishes. Past the stone fence and up a pathway, the house has a stone patio beside the arched alcove above the front door. The living room is a step down and includes a double-height vaulted ceiling, a corner fireplace, and french doors out to the front patio. The formal dining room includes the original chandelier, and the kitchen has a stained glass transom, dark-stained butcher block countertops, and maze-like storage above some of the cabinets. One of the bedrooms has a sunroom-like sleeping porch with terra cotta tiles, and the lower level has a huge rec room with a bench built in along the walls, a media room, and a bonus room with mosaic tiled floor and paned windows looking into the laundry room. The house also has a screened-in rear porch, a rear patio with a pergola, a garage, and an outdoor fireplace.

A 19th-Century One-Bedroom in Old Town
Located on a brick sidewalk in historic Old Town Alexandria, this two-story one-bedroom house was built in the early 19th century. The interior has tiled floors throughout and leads off with a living room, where a column-flanked doorway opens into the eat-in kitchen. Around the corner and just before the bathroom, extra cabinetry and a sink are built in on an exposed brick wall across from the washer/dryer. Upstairs there are knotty pine floors, and along with a landing that doubles as flex space the size of a room, the bedroom also has room for a sitting area. The fenced-in rear and side stone patios are framed by garden areas and are also accessible through an archtop gate next to the front door and a two-car parking pad off the rear alley.

A Three-Bedroom in Section 3
Over in Section 3 of the Village of Chevy Chase, this cute farmhouse and its front porch sit behind a picket fence and a manicured lawn. The living room has a white brick wood-burning fireplace, and on the other side of the front door, a breakfast bar doubles as a cut-thru to the kitchen. In addition to the bedroom suite on the main level, the formal dining room has panel sliding glass doors out to a deck beneath a pergola, overlooking the rear lawn. Upstairs, the owner's bedroom has a sitting nook beneath a cove ceiling, and the bathroom has a deep skylight and marble tiles along the floor and up the walls surrounding the tub. The house also has an unfinished lower level and a deep driveway with detached garage.
