A Turreted Rowhouse with Interchangeable Rooms

Just off the H Street Corridor, this Victorian rowhouse offers a living arrangement that is a little different from the typical Victorian rowhouse. The house has a prominent turret that creates a semicircular interior nook, anchoring the living room at the front of the house and creating a bonus area in the master bedroom on the second floor. The rest of the main level offers multiple layout options. Currently styled for dining, the next room has an exposed brick wall and decorative fireplace-style nook. Then there is an open bonus room leading to the L-shaped kitchen with separate breakfast bar and access to the deep rear patio and parking pad. The lower level has a rec room and a powder room.

Eye-Catching Architecture Fit for an Artist

This Wesley Heights Tudor was built in 1941 by the couple who lived next door at the time as a house and studio for their artist daughter. Now, the interior abounds with eye-catching original details, from the Dutch front door and plantation-shuttered windows and exposed beams to the alcoves and cove ceilings in the upstairs bedrooms. The master suite has a pitched-roof closet with built-in shelving, and the basement level has two bedrooms and a full bath. The brick chimney stack protrudes from the rear façade of the house and a stone-paved patio area overlooks the expansive yard, where a miniature cottage currently serves as a shed.

Loft on the Hill with Hidden Space

A few blocks from Stanton Park, one would not expect this loft-like 814 square-foot one bedroom to sit in such an assuming boutique building. The high-ceilinged unit has 8 foot-high windows and a huge, open living/dining area that converges on a corner fireplace. The modern kitchen sits beneath the upper mezzanine level across from a closet nook and the full bath. An office nook is tucked just up the stairs opposite a sleeping area. Between the two is a set of accordion doors, opening up to a deep storage walk-through level with ample closet space, built-in shoe shelving and the washer/dryer. An additional storage space also conveys with the unit.
