This week’s Best New Listings includes three early 20th century homes in Hyattsville, AU Park and Bloomingdale which each offer over 2,200 square feet.
Striking Finishes in AU Park
This Arts and Crafts-style house in American University Park mixes contemporary and original features throughout. The kitchen has striking turquoise and varnished wood Scavolini cabinets, and a narrow floor-to-ceiling built-in unit indicates the adjacent open dining area, which has a built-in hutch with backlit frosted glass cabinets. A tall-ceilinged florida room has a skylit pitched ceiling, an archtop window and an exposed brick wall. The living room has a brick panel fireplace with built-in shelving, and the main level hosts two bedrooms and a bathroom. The nearly 2,300 square-foot house also offers other useful features like bonus storage on the second and lower levels, a front porch with a bench swing, a detached garage with electric car charger, and a garden-framed backyard.

Two-for-One in Bloomingdale
In the heart of Bloomingdale, this Victorian rowhouse is typical of the neighborhood, from its vestibule with mosaic tiles on the wall to its separately-metered two-bedroom English basement. Exposed weathered brick lines a wall in the living room, and the front bay window shares a corner with a fireplace. The generous kitchen is finished sparingly, with painted ceiling beams and a pantry wall concealed behind sliding doors. A family room leads out to a covered rear deck, which steps down to a deep patio and elevated parking pad. The owner's bedroom has a wide bay window, a white fireplace with a mirror built into the columned mantle and mosaic tile surrounding an ornate iron grate. The third bedroom has access to a covered private balcony.

Historic in Hyattsville
This four-bedroom listing is a designated historic site just outside the Hyattsville Historic District, and its interior reflects that status. The living room has a deep tray ceiling and a window seat between built-ins, and the kitchen has a pressed tin ceiling and a built-in display shelf. The owner's bedroom occupies the top level under a skylit cove ceiling, enjoying a spacious sitting area with floor-to-ceiling built-ins, and a dressing room-style custom closet sits on the floor below. The extensive rear deck is flanked by a detached two-car garage and a 750 square-foot accessory studio with a powder room, built-ins, and exposed wood trusses beneath the tall pitched ceiling. The shaded side- and backyard, which backs up to Deitz Park, wraps around the buildings and also includes a pond with a petite bridge.
