A Two-Level Two-Bedroom in Pleasant Plains
Over in a former factory in Pleasant Plains (The Helicopter Factory), this 1,325 square-foot unit offers a house-like layout in a multifamily building. The unit enters into a wide horizontal hall space that looks like it could serve as the dining area or an office. The galley kitchen has quartzite countertops and open shelving affixed to pipes mounted on a white subway tile backsplash. A ceiling beam delineates the kitchen from the living room, where another ceiling beam is affixed above the sliding glass doors out to a private patio. The lower level has a hall bath with white subway tile and the first bedroom has a built-in storage-flanked murphy bed. The owner's bedroom has an en-suite bath behind a barn door, where a white subway tile accent wall extends past the double sink into the shower stall.

Geometry and Millwork on Bethesda Cul-de-Sac
On a Bethesda cul-de-sac, this spacious mid-century home is packed full of custom millwork and unusual shapes. The interior has wood plank ceilings with matching millwork stacked both beneath the ceiling and above the floors, framing the Mondrian-like array of windows surrounding the front door. This theme continues in the living room, which has a fireplace and irregularly stacked windows on the adjacent wall, and is separated from the dining room. A door leads out to a pentagonal screened-in porch with a ceiling fan and framing reminiscent of the window arrays. The kitchen has stacked cabinets that extend to create a built-in corner office in an adjacent sitting area, complete with a bar/display hutch on the opposite wall with a floor-to-ceiling window array between. The hall has access to a deck on the way to the hexagonal owner's bedroom with bay-style window sets. The carpeted lower level rec room walks out to the partially-covered patio and the vegetated lot beyond.
