Best New Listings: The Candy Factory Comes to Cleveland Park

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week, Best New Listings features a two-bedroom boat on the Waterfront, an abundance of built-ins in Burleith, and bungalow with historic proportions in Cleveland Park.


A Two-Bedroom Houseboat on the Waterfront

This two-bedroom houseboat offers a relatively affordable option to live on the Southwest Waterfront. The partially-covered deck offers a seating area, and a door leads down into the enclosed living quarters, surrounded by windows. A living area has a breakfast bar and a steering wheel (of course). The U-shaped kitchen is down another few steps, offering contemporary finishes like granite countertops, a farmhouse basin sink, and a stainless steel oven with cooktop cover; opposite the kitchen, a U-shaped bench is built-in below storage cubbies. Two skylight sleeping quarters, each with en-suite baths, extensive storage and mirrored headboards, are on either side of the living/kitchen area. One bedroom also has a built-in L-shaped bench and built-in bedside table, while the other has a built-in desk area.

The family room area has a fireplace between two sets of french doors, which lead to a flagstone patio. Three bedrooms with double exposure are off the skylit upstairs landing, with two of the bedrooms incorporating built-in shelving units. The owner's en-suite bath also has a floor-to-ceiling built-in bureau unit surrounding the double vanity.

Candy Factory Comes to Cleveland Park

A few blocks from the Cleveland Park Metro station and steps from Melvin C. Hazen Park, this low-slung bungalow has more space than meets the eye. The deep living/dining room to the right of the entry hall has a fireplace and a window seat. The impressive eat-in kitchen occupies the rear of the house with radiant tiled flooring, a partially-vaulted ceiling, a series of skylights, and a custom island that repurposes a marble slab sourced from a candy factory. Each of the bathrooms is finished in contrasting tile-work, including the main level bath with a sauna-like shower and glass block window. The upstairs landing offers bonus space fit for an office or seating area, and the bedrooms retain charming elements original to the house. The lower level has plenty of raw multipurpose space; the house also has a driveway and detached garage.

  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Feet: 2,488
