This week’s Best New Listings include a penthouse in a converted church on Capitol Hill and an energy-efficient, five-bedroom Mount Rainier bungalow.
An Energy-Efficient and Affordable Five-Bedroom
This Mount Rainier bungalow employs efficient flow to deliver an affordable five-bedroom option which seems more spacious than its square footage would suggest. The house has front-facing solar panels and the main level was given an open-concept makeover with front-to-back sightlines. The living area includes a wood-burning fireplace, and the kitchen beyond the dining area has a double-basin farmhouse sink and a breakfast bar elevated above an integrated cooktop beneath a chef's hood. The owner's bedroom sits beneath a cove ceiling with a built-in bureau where the ceiling slopes to half its height and a semi-elliptical built-in sits midway up another wall. The expansive backyard has an octagonal wooden deck, a shed and a tree swing, and the house also has a lower level with kitchenette, full bath and laundry room.

A Divine Slice of History in Converted Church Condo
A little over six months after six condos in this historic Romanesque Revival-style Stanton Park church hit the market, one of the three-story residences is available for sale. Located in the Stanton Tower, the unit has a private elevator, restored stained glass windows and 16-foot ceilings, as well as spiraling interior access up to the structure's restored 130 foot-tall bell tower, offering views of the Capitol building. The open living/dining area is bookended by a kitchen with a breakfast bar and a refrigerator concealed amidst the cabinetry, and the double-height stained glass windows sit alongside pipe organ-referencing sconces. Two of the bedrooms also enjoy the structure's original architectural features, including vaulted ceilings and archtop stained glass windows which rotate on an axis to receive fresh air.
