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.
