Newly-Constructed Treehouse in Takoma Park

Designed by local firm WT Architecture, this boxy home is built into a hillside in Takoma Park such that the front door is at street-level. An expansive family room is just up the stairs, opening onto a terrace with treetop views that also creates an overhang for the front porch. Up some stairs on the other side of the living room lies the dining room and the wood-paneled kitchen with invisible-close cabinetry. The master bedroom has two sets of windows with treetop views converging at one corner, while the other bedrooms have floating built-in shelving and concealed closets; the bathrooms have spa-like finishes. Another set of stairs along the side of the house walk up to a large deck.

A Stanton Park School Loft

Over in the historic Edmonds School, this two-story two-bedroom loft is packed with interesting architectural features. Red brick lines the walls just past the foyer, and an oversized 4x4 window anchors the open concept living area. The U-shaped dichromatic kitchen has a breakfast bar, quartz countertops and subway-tiled walls, overlooking the dining room. Another large window illuminates the open staircase to the bedrooms, which are more impressive than the lower level. The master suite has an exposed brick accent panel, walk-in California closet and a row of clerestory windows, the latter also a feature of the second bedroom made all the more impressive with a double-height tray ceiling. The unit comes with an assigned surface parking space.

A House-and-a-Half on the Hill

While some may find the eclecticism of this Capitol Hill house's interior overwhelming, it certainly isn't starved for character. The semi-detached house sits at the end of a brick path and is rich with detail, from the lion-flanked fireplace in the living room to the arched doorways. The kitchen is the star, featuring an ornate marble island, exposed wooden ceiling beams, a farmhouse sink, tiled floors and a built-in La Cornue oven with hood and copper finishes. The tiled floors continue into the separate breakfast room, which has windows on opposite walls and a set of French doors in the center, leading out to the rear yard. A separate carriage house, also accessible via an iron gate in the front yard, offers a one-bedroom loft unit. Natural light in the open living area comes courtesy of a series of skylights, while a bedroom with brick walls and exposed ceiling beams occupies the upper level.

  • Price: $1.9 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Feet: 2,822
