A Tuscan-Modern Mash-Up in Dupont Circle

This Dupont Circle studio incorporates modern built-in furniture with a rustic Tuscan feel to create a surprisingly functional unit. The unit is configured into a series of narrow spaces, bringing natural light into every room. The tiled foyer has a rustic galley kitchen through an arched doorway on one side, finished with butcher block countertops and plank shelving with mosaic tile flooring. On another side of the foyer, a carved arched wooden door leads into the living/sleeping room, which has a shelving console with drawers, cabinets and a desk on one wall. The center panels of the shelving unit swing open to pull down a lengthwise Murphy bed. The bathroom houses a full-size washer/dryer and also has plank shelving, as well as a frameless glass shower with pebble tilework that extends out of the shower into the sink area.

A Roomy Renovation with a Rental

Over in Near Northeast, this four-bedroom Victorian rowhouse has a modernized traditional look. The living room has an angled fireplace, tray ceiling and giant picture window, along with an angled fireplace and an inlayed border along the hardwood floors. A standalone doorway creates a segue to the dining room, which has a built-in mantel with columns and a mirror. A wide galley kitchen then leads to a sunroom, which in turn walks out to a rear deck. Back inside, a whitewashed exposed brick wall follows the stairway up to a skylit landing, where all the bedroom doors have transoms above. There are two spacious en-suites, each with a huge picture window, on this level: one with a near double-height ceiling and exposed brick accent walls, and the other with a separate sitting area with exposed brick accent wall. The unit also has a one-bedroom English basement with separate C of O.

An Abundance of Built-Ins in Shepherd Park

Just blocks from the upcoming Walter Reed redevelopment, this three-bedroom farmhouse comes with plenty of natural light and space for storage. Several rooms have unassuming built-ins, including the dining room that has a cabinetry console that takes up the lower half of the wall beneath one of the windows, creating a long shelf. The kitchen has a farmhouse sink beneath floating cabinets and a pass-through window that creates a bar in the adjacent breakfast room, which has windows on three sides and also has a corner built-in buffet with a wine rack and a desk area. The master suite has a walk-in closet with extensive built-ins and, in the bedroom, a lower-wall built-in similar to those in the dining room. A bonus room also has a wall of built-ins and triple exposure. The house also comes with a partially-finished basement and an expansive backyard.
