An Artfully-Renovated Rowhouse

This rowhouse in Mount Pleasant was artfully renovated by its current owners, mixing traditional framing with contemporary finishes. The open kitchen and dining room has slate-tiled accent walls and granite countertops. The stained hardwood staircase contrasts with a cable-and-post rail and frosted glass landings. Both the family room off the kitchen and a bedroom on the second floor have accordion doors beneath transom windows that open onto outdoor terraces. Behind a set of sliding doors on the second floor lies a large family room centered around a bay window. Latticed hardwood flooring and eye-catching tiled bathroom walls are throughout the house, which, in typical Mount Pleasant form, also has a full in-law suite on the lower level with English basement-style access.

A Convenient Takoma Park Craftsman

Located on one of Takoma Park's most convenient streets, this four-bedroom Craftsman offers a lot of natural light and living space across its four levels. Just past the wide front porch through the front door is a deep living room that ends at the base of the staircase.

A few steps up lies a tiled-floor Florida room with rectangular bay nook, oversized windows and sliding glass doors that open onto a patio. The skylit master bedroom has a cove ceiling and enjoys the bay nook; the en-suite bath also has a skylight. A large attic bonus room has dormer windows, while the finished basement has a full bath and a mudroom at the separate entrance.

Contemporary Meets Commercial at this Co-op

The kitchen incorporates commercial style with stainless steel hood and cabinetry contrasting with granite countertops and a waterfall island with mirrored base. The bedrooms are comparably-sized and each has a walk-in closet. The building is pet-friendly and has a roof deck.
