Best New Listings: The Walk to Metro Edition

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes semi-detached rowhouses in Eastern Market and Buena Vista, and a house in Falls Church that are each within walking distance of a Metro station.


An End-Unit Near Eastern Market

Exposed brick lines the wall along the slatted stairway of this two-bedroom semi-detached rowhouse near Eastern Market. The brick wall continues past the living area to form the backsplash in the kitchen, where a floating butcher block shelf is mounted and surrounds the hood above the stove. On the opposite wall, and past the island, nearly floor-to-ceiling cabinetry surrounds a built-in breakfast bar. Upstairs, the first bedroom has a trio of tall windows and a minimalist en-suite with a dark blue pebble floor in the skylit shower stall. The second bedroom has a brick accent wall and slender exposed ceiling beams, and the second bath has picture-framed built-in shelving and a standalone tub. The house also has a fenced-in rear brick patio beside a garden area and a small shed.

The living room has a fireplace next to a cabinet built into a nook, across from a shallow bay window. The eat-in kitchen has a seating area, an island bookended with built-ins, and a built-out pantry wall. Upstairs, two bedrooms with double exposure share a bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower, and the owner's en-suite bath has a standalone tub in a nook beneath a leaded window. The house also has an attic under a cove ceiling, a lower level with another bedroom suite, and a zoned HVAC system.

A Chair Rail All Around an Anacostia Rowhouse

This semi-detached rowhouse is right where Anacostia meets Buena Vista, a half-mile from the Anacostia Metro station. Past the front porch, there is room for a seating area at the base of the stairs, and the living room abuts the stair. A chair rail also runs around the living room and down the hall, which leads to a half-bath. The kitchen has two-tone tiled floors and mosaic-tiled backsplashes on either side. The chair rail continues along the upstairs landing and into the bedrooms, including the spacious owner's bedroom which has a ceiling fan, en-suite bath, and sitting area. A path alongside the house leads to a painted paved patio surrounded by a stepped wall topped with bricks.
