Best New Listings: The Curb Appeal Edition
This week’s Best New Listings includes a Cape Cod in Brentwood, a colonial in Colonial Village, and a cottage in Takoma Park, all exemplars of curb appeal.
A Two-Bedroom House with a Pub
Less than two blocks from Takoma Park's public amenities (park, dog park, library, community center), this cottage's curb appeal starts with its garden-like vegetation along the front fence. Its erstwhile detached garage was converted into a pub-like room on the main level, with a built-in banquette beside a bar and additional bar seating beneath the turf-covered stairs. The living room has a coffered ceiling, a white painted brick fireplace, and french doors into a carpeted bonus room. The dining area has a built-in corner banquette and sliding glass doors out to the back patio. The owner's bedroom has a closet wall, and the lower level is split between storage space and a bedroom suite.

The kitchen has a mounted breakfast bar peninsula, with a hood floating above the integrated cooktop below, along with marble-esque countertops and matching backsplash. A sunroom has sliding glass door access to the wood platform deck, a couple of steps up from a stone patio and a paver path through planter areas.
