by Nena Perry-Brown

This week, Best New Listings includes two colonials on opposite sides of Michigan Avenue and a tudor-style colonial in Upper Chevy Chase.

Spacious and Renovated on 12th Street

This colonial sits behind a manicured lawn and wide front porch on 12th Street NE. The main level mixes a traditional layout with open flow, and also enjoys the convenience of in-ceiling speakers. The spacious duo-tone kitchen has a coffered ceiling, marble and quartz countertops, and a breakfast bar island. The adjacent family room has a white gas fireplace, oversized windows and doors out to the wide rear deck. The three bedrooms on the second floor each have double exposure, and the owner's en-suite bath has heated floors and a double vanity. The finished attic provides a bonus room under a cove ceiling, while the basement has a rec room, the fourth bedroom and a full bath. The side- and backyard sit alongside a parking pad with garage door access.

Symmetrical in Chevy Chase with a Projection Screen

Over in Upper Chevy Chase, this near-symmetrical Tudor colonial was recently updated by its architect-owner. On one side of the front porch, the lattice-patterned front door sits under a cove, while on the opposite side lies a door to the library, a room which has a wall of modern built-ins. Three bedrooms share a bathroom on the upper level, while the owner's suite has a walk-in closet and a marble-floored dressing room attached to the en-suite bath. The above-grade lower level has a rec room with projection screen, a sauna, a bedroom complete with a Murphy bed, a full bath, and a wet bar. A covered rear porch overlooks a small pond, a slate patio with fireplace beneath a pergola, and the spacious backyard. The house also has a detached two-car garage.

Terrace in the Front, Tiki in the Bar

A short walk from Brookland's 12th Street drag, this colonial sits atop an incline on Kearny Street, boasting a terraced front garden and full-length front porch. The living room has a white brick fireplace and the entryway to the dining room is framed with pillars above built-in shelving units. All three bedrooms have double exposure, although the bedroom on the lower level is the only one with a private bath. The lower level also has a rec room with white painted stone covering the lower half of the walls, as well as one of the more interesting home features we have seen recently: a Tiki-style bar nook. The full-length rear deck is one step above the ample fenced-in backyard.
