Best New Listings: Majestic Spaces From Stanton Park to Woodley Park

by Nena Perry-Brown

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.

6,900 Stately Square Feet in Woodley Park

This 6,900 square-foot six-bedroom has a stately exterior, with a front door beneath a balcony just past a pair of double-height columns. The grand interior has an open, contemporary aesthetic throughout. The living area has a marble-framed fireplace between two sets of bright blue french doors leading to a florida room with flagstone floors and exposed brick, surrounded by oversized windows. The white kitchen has marble countertops, back-lit cabinets, a concealed fridge and brass and bright blue accents. A wine fridge sits next to a breakfast nook with built-in window bench, and a formal dining room has a wet bar bay window. The ample owner's bedroom has a custom-shelved dressing room, and a marble-clad en-suite bath has two vanities on either side of the frameless glass shower and standalone tub. The carpeted attic has a cove ceiling and a deep window seat, and the lower level also has a bedroom and bathroom.
