This week’s Best New Listings features houses in Silver Spring, Shaw and the H Street Corridor.
A Rambler Between Two Sunrooms
Over in the Sligo Park Hills section of Silver Spring, the front door of this rambler is inside its enclosed front porch, which has sliding glass doors and oversized windows. The porch also provides natural light for the living room, which has a white-painted brick fireplace on the opposite wall from built-in shelves above a cabinet. A carpeted sunroom provides access to the rear deck, beyond which the backyard slopes upward. The three bedrooms share a bathroom on the main level, and wood panel walls on the lower level create built-ins and a corner bar. The lower level also has a kitchen, a laundry room, a cedar closet, a full bath and a den, and stairs lead up into a separate skylit office/studio with huge picture windows.

More Contemporary Than Meets the Eye in Near Northeast
A block off the H Street Corridor, this rowhouse has a more contemporary interior than meets the eye. Past the canted bay window in the front room and the painted brick wall along the stairway, the open concept main level leads to a kitchen with lacquered white cabinets and a waterfall island. The living room beyond has a bar built in along one wall and a double-height ceiling with a large picture window above sliding glass doors. The tall ceilings come courtesy of a mezzanine, with frameless glass partition, overlooking the room from the upstairs landing and spacious enough to create a lounge with a wet bar. One of the bedrooms upstairs also enjoys the bay window, and the owner's en-suite bath fits separate vanities onto either side of a frameless glass, two-person shower. The house also has a roof deck with treetop views.

Restored (Plus a Roof Deck) in Shaw
Down the hidden block from another of this year's Best New Listings, this classic Shaw rowhouse has a restored façade and a renovated interior. The living area has a gas fireplace and a bay window, and red brick lines the wall of the stairway. The formal dining area has a nearly floor to ceiling picture window and a pass through window to the kitchen, creating a breakfast bar. The kitchen has tiled floors, quartz countertops, a double basin sink, glass subway tile backsplash, and french doors out to the rear deck. Two of the bedrooms upstairs have bay window seating nooks, and the uppermost landing offers a lounge space with wet bar and access to the roof deck. Accessible via a separate entrance, the partially-finished lower level has a rec room and laundry area.
