This week’s Best New Listings includes a house on a corner lot in Grant Park, a house with hidden spaces in Hyattsville, and a mid-century modern house in Falls Church.
A Brick House on a Northeast Corner
In the Grant Park area of Northeast DC, this detached house sits on a corner lot overlooking Clay Place. One of the home's more standout features is the U-shaped kitchen that has a breakfast bar peninsula, industrial-style open shelves book-ending the cabinetry, and a beveled glass subway tile backsplash. The kitchen is open to the family room which has a painted fireplace, and two bedrooms share a bath on the main level. The stairs walk directly up into the owner's suite, which has a cove ceiling, a pair of double closets, and an en-suite bath with frameless glass shower stall, double sinks, and herringbone tile floors. The lower level has a rec room, a full bath, and a bonus room, and the generous yard has two patio areas.

Bedroom Bays and Hidden Space in Hyattsville
On another corner lot in Hyattsville, this turn-of-the-century farmhouse is full of surprises. Past the front porch, the living room has a decorative corner fireplace across from L-shaped wood built-ins, while the family room beyond has a bay window. Here, the built-ins create a media center and also surround a screened french window that lets in air from the screened-in porch. The kitchen has waterfall quartz countertops where a breakfast bar is mounted above the integrated cooktop. A pass-through window here sits between two doorways, each across from a built-in pantry that matches the cabinetry. The white cabinet between these doubles as a secret door to a hidden media room. The owner's bedroom is one of two where the bay window can double as a bed alcove, and there is also a spiral stair up to a loft/attic area. The house also has outdoor patio areas, a fire pit, a shed, and a parking space.

Updated Mid-Century with Falls Church Stream Views
On a lot abutting the Holmes Run Valley Stream Park, this mid-century modern house was developed by Andre Bodor and expanded by Michael Cook and Cook Architecture. At the front of the house, clerestory windows follow the sloped roofline on three sides. The walls stop below the ceiling of the post-and-beam interior, echoing the clerestory windows along the perimeter. There is a wall of windows with views of the stream in the open concept kitchen and living/dining areas, where the latter has a fireplace recessed in an exposed brick wall with open shelves on either side. The kitchen has a breakfast bar mounted above the Caesarstone countertops and a hood above the integrated cooktop. The walk-out lower level also has a fireplace recessed into a brick wall, a bedroom with wet bar, a full bath, and sliding glass doors out to the tree-covered lot, where stone stairs create a path winding through the property.
