by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes a tranquil Queen Anne in Takoma Park, a Charles Goodman house in Hollin Hills, and a Cleveland Park condo with plenty of privacy.


A Queen Anne in Takoma Park

Located in Historic Takoma Park, this 19th century Victorian is packed with tranquil charms, from the wraparound front porch to the stream and koi pond. The living room has an office nook in one corner courtesy of sets of floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving between the windows, creating a pair of window seats. Further into the room is a brick fireplace and a built-in bar, and through the formal dining room, the kitchen has pastel teal countertops, a center breakfast bar island built around the stove, and a double basin sink. The family room has a freestanding fireplace and oversized windows on either side of glass french doors beneath a transom, leading out to the wraparound paver patio and the gardens and treehouse beyond. The owner's bedroom has an archtop window stacked above a pair of windows beneath the pitched ceiling, along with a winding wooden stair up to a loft.

Privacy and Convenience in Cleveland Park

Not quite a block off Cleveland Park's Connecticut Avenue corridor, this one-bedroom condo sits on the ground floor of a boutique building. This offers the unit a private patio along the side of the building, creating a private entrance with keyless entry. Concealed ductwork throughout the open living/dining room creates an abstract tray ceiling of sorts. The U-shaped kitchen has a subway-tiled backsplash, butcher block countertops, and open shelving, some of which has lighting beneath. The building is cat-friendly and allows dogs on a case-by-case basis.

A Charles Goodman House in Hollin Hills

This Charles Goodman-designed home in Hollin Hills offers quintessential mid-century modern style. The house has polished concrete floors throughout, and the living room boasts a wall of windows with french doors to the rear patio, and a skylit area with painted brick walls and a wood-burning fireplace. The adjacent room has a solarium-style box window nook, and at the opposite end, barn doors conceal a laundry and storage room. The skylit owner's bedroom has space for a sitting area and several near-floor-to-ceiling windows, along with an en-suite bath. An open-air breezeway separates the house from a skylit bonus room with access to both side and rear patios. The yard also includes a seating area with fire pit and a hot tub.
