1,872 Square Feet Circa 1872

Just off the buzzing 14th Street corridor, one of the uniform Federal rowhouses on the one-way T Street has hit the market. An open patio area sits beside the front door, which opens into a deep living area with a built-in bench in the bay window and a gas fireplace with built-in shelving on either side. Next is the dining room, which shares access to a rarity in the DC housing market: a two-story, skylit breezeway. The hardwood floor slopes upward to the tiled kitchen with marble counters and wine fridge, which also opens into the breezeway and leads out to a rear wooden deck. Upstairs, the master bedroom has three closets and the second bedroom has a juliet balcony. The home comes with a garage door-accessible private parking space.

A Woodgrain Wonder in Bloomingdale

This corner Victorian rowhouse sits behind a wrought iron gate at the crossroads of Bloomingdale and Ledroit Park. Its curvilinear interior retains traditional charm with the prominent presence of hardwood in everything from trim to paneling. The original wood is especially prevalent in the living room, which has wood-paneled corner guards and built-in bookcases framing a fireplace in an ornate carved wood mantel. One bright bedroom enjoys use of the house's large round turret and also features architectural details seen elsewhere in the house, from built-in shelving nooks to the white tin pressed ceiling. The master bedroom has a modern fireplace and a den courtesy of the uppermost part of the turret. The house also has a full in-law suite with a sleeping nook and use of the turret.
