This week's edition of Best New Listings includes an Embassy Row home fit for a diplomat, a Silver Spring loft and a condo in Shaw with ample patio space.


Fit For a Diplomat on Embassy Row

Many influential DC figures have called this six-level house on Embassy Row a home - including an ambassador, a concert cellist and even an advisor to the National Security Council. The house was fully renovated in 2016 and a grand arched entry provides an introduction of what it inside. The primary suite takes up almost an entire floor and has a huge walk-in closet and a bathroom with a soaking tub, fireplace, double vanity sink and private toilet space. A living room connects to the kitchen and has built-in bookshelves, a fireplace, and full french doors leading to a tree-lined back patio that looks out on Rock Creek Park. A roof deck offers a clear view of Rosslyn and the bottom level of the home has an in-law suite perfectly suited for guests.

A Modern Two-Bedroom in Shaw

There's more to this renovated Shaw condo than meets the eye from the street.  After entering the front door, new owners and guests will ascend a set of stairs to reach the listing. The kitchen features gold lighting fixtures, an island, a breakfast bar, wood cabinetry and recently refinished marble countertops. The living room includes lots of room for various-sized furniture, and in the back, the small dining area leads to a patio. The bedroom on the main floor also has its own patio along with a private bathroom. A roof deck on the top level looks out on the neighborhood, and the primary bedroom is also located on the top floor and offers ample closet space and another private balcony. An enclosed garage is located in the alley behind the home.

17-Foot Ceilings in Silver Spring

With 17' ceilings, this Silver Spring condo might be a loft lover's dream. The open floor plan allows light from the tall front windows to illuminate the living room and the kitchen.

On the main floor, there is an enclosed bedroom with closet space, an office, a laundry area and a full bathroom.
