A Bright Brightwood Ranch

This ranch house in Brightwood is a short walk from Rock Creek Park and balances its open floorplan with traditional mid-century elements. Just off the entry foyer lie the three bedrooms, each with custom shades and two of the baths; to the left of the foyer is the living room with a wide bay window and fireplace. Arch-framed entries create uninterrupted flow between rooms without eliminating all walls outright. This side goes from the formal dining room into the kitchen, which steps out onto the wooden rear deck. Below the deck is a slate-paved patio area adjacent to yard space that houses a small shed. There is also a lower level with a rec room, the third full bath, and separate crawl space.

Both bedrooms have ample closet space; the second bedroom is currently styled as a family room with two near-floor to ceiling built-in shelving units.
