Glass Floors and Glass Walls in Old Town
Barely a block off King Street, this mid-century rowhouse, customized by architect Ziad Demian, looks like the neighboring homes from the front and more like a lantern in the back. A plexiglass floor beneath glass ceiling panels sits between the floating stair and the limestone waterfall island, complete with a breakfast bar and integrated cooktop beneath a floating hood. The dining area beyond has a wood slat wall and a railing overlooking the family room and the wall of windows beyond. Off the skylit upstairs landing, the owner's bedroom also has a wall of partially-frosted windows adjacent to a wood-slat accent wall. The lower-level family room has a two-toned accent wall and french doors leading out to a slate patio space with stairs up to a secured parking pad and a path to the grilling area outside the dining room.

A Rambler with a Rocky Pool Terrace
A block from Marymount University, the focal point of this mid-century rambler lies down a set of floating stairs where the lower level has a wood slat ceiling in a parquet-esque pattern above a living area, and on the other side of a beam beside the kitchen, the dining area sits under a chevron wood slat ceiling. Three sets of sliding glass doors on this level lead out to a stone patio with a vegetation-covered pergola across from a built-in grill, and a pool deck beyond. The lower level also has a carpeted bonus room with decorative fireplace, and the house has a circular driveway and a detached two-car garage.
