This week’s Best New Listings includes a loft on Connecticut Avenue, an open rowhouse off Wisconsin Avenue, and an Arlington farmhouse with socially-distanced spaces.

Built for Distance in Arlington

This four-bedroom farmhouse in Lyon Park is seemingly built for social distancing. The front porch has stairs leading up to it on two sides, and there is a half-bath just inside the house, convenient for porch visitors. The living room has modern tray molding on the ceiling, double exposure, and a fireplace. The farmhouse kitchen has a mobile breakfast bar island, a ceiling fan, a stainless steel hood and backsplash above the stove, and a pantry nook with the back door. One of the upstairs bedrooms is styled as an office, with a wall of floor-to-ceiling shelves opposite a built-in desk. A few steps down from the rear deck is a second deck with a tree growing out of it, and a stone path leads down from the deck, through the yard and around the side of the house.

Conceptually-Open in Georgetown

This semi-detached turn-of-the-century house is just a block off Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. Past the tile-floored entry vestibule and off the hall, the living room has built-in floor-to-ceiling shelving recessed beside the fireplace, and is open to the dining area and the back wall with its windows stacked floor-to-ceiling. Off the roomy upstairs landing, the owner's bedroom also has windows stacked floor-to-ceiling, and another bedroom has a reading nook and a walk-in shoe closet. The above-grade lower level has a bedroom suite, a laundry closet, a tile-floored rec room/flex space, and glass french doors out to a brick-paved rear patio with a parking pad on the other side of the fence.

A Missing Middle Loft in Chevy Chase

Converted out of a rowhouse, this one-bedroom condo offers a taste of the loft life on Chevy Chase DC's main street. There is a hall closet just inside the unit and to the left, half of the kitchen overlooks the living room. Beams float beneath the living room ceiling, anchoring the ladder-like floating stairs, while sliding glass doors beside a matching window lead out to the covered terrace with parquet-style flooring. The bedroom is off the living room and has a walk-in closet and access to the dual-entry bath. The loft has a built-in closet wall, creating space for storage and/or an office or flex area.
