This week’s Best New Listings includes a colorful townhouse in the heart of the city, a modern farmhouse and a Maryland home with creatively converted space.
A Pop of Color in Foggy Bottom
With spring green bathroom tiles, a bright yellow banister, blue doors and a painted yellow brick fireplace, this Foggy Bottom home is perfect for someone who enjoys a pop of color.

A Maryland Farmhouse With Fun Quirks
Built in the 1890s, this farmhouse in the Berwyn Heights section of Maryland features a myriad of unique quirks - such as an attic converted into a multi-purpose space and geometric windows throughout. The large kitchen has wooden counters, white cabinetry and opens to a back patio. The main level has two living rooms and a formal dining area. Fun window shapes include a round porthole type in the entry hallway, stained glass above the front door and a tripartite half-moon on the second floor - which is particularly recognizable from the street.

A Recently Renovated Farmhouse in Foxhall Village
This four-bedroom farmhouse in DC's Foxhall Village was recently renovated, and a key feature is the brand new open concept kitchen. It includes custom cabinetry, an island with seating, crisp white granite countertops and an attached open living space. Blending almost seamlessly into the wall, white cabinets on the far left wall help to establish a minimalist look while still offering storage for household items. Near the front door, the main living room has a fireplace and built-in shelving. The primary bedroom upstairs spans the back of the home and has its own patio. An oversized one-car garage leads into the finished basement of the home, and an elaborate playhouse sits in the fenced backyard.

- Price: $1,839,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 4.5
