This week’s Best New Listings includes two top-floor condos on two sides of the city, and a rustic Arlington bungalow.

A Tiled Terrace with City Views from Southwest

This nearly 1,000 square-foot Southwest unit sits a couple of blocks from the Wharf and has views spanning the city. An entry hall with a double closet leads directly into the living room, which sits under a tall cove ceiling with a wall of windows framing sliding glass doors. The doors open out to a terrace with honeycomb-tiled flooring, where one can see the Washington Monument. Back inside, the ceiling drops to create a formal dining nook just outside of the U-shaped kitchen with tiled floors and a tiled backsplash. The bedroom has a deep walk-in closet with built-ins, a reading nook, and two sets of sliding glass doors out to juliet balconies. The unit retains its original parquet hardwood floors, and the purchase also comes with a garage parking spot. The building includes a shared laundry room, a pool, a sauna, and a gym.

A Rustic Farmhouse in Arlington

Steps from a branch of the Potomac Overlook Regional Park, this rustic bungalow is set back from the street alongside a driveway. The front porch is appended beneath a pitched roof, and the main level includes a bedroom and full bath. The formal dining area has sliding glass doors leading to a deck with steps down to the spacious yard. The dining area is also open to the L-shaped kitchen which has farmhouse cabinetry, open shelving, wine cubbies, and an L-shaped peninsula breakfast bar. Inlaid borders create frames in the hardwood flooring upstairs, where the owner's bedroom spans one side of the house under a tall slanted ceiling. The second bedroom upstairs sits under a skylit slanted ceiling and has access to storage crawl space behind fence-post doors.
