Artist-Owned Takoma Bungalow

This brightly-colored bungalow is both deceptively roomy and artfully renovated courtesy of an addition and updates made by the artist owner. Rustic touches abound, starting with the living room, which features a fireplace in a heavy wood mantel sandwiched between built-ins and a ceiling traversed by exposed beams. The updated eat-in kitchen has walls covered with decorative tiles, a semi-circular pass-through window to the living room, and heated floors. Next is a bright sunroom with oversized windows and sliding glass doors to the rear deck, which overlooks a sizeable brick patio and yard with shed. A set of French doors lead from the sunroom to a bedroom, currently serving as a mini-studio to the partially-finished basement's more ample workspace.

Efficient and Affordable Hill East One-Bedroom

Midway between Lincoln Park and RFK Stadium, this one-bedroom condo comes with 700 square feet and a very affordable monthly condo fee. The unit enters into a pentagonal living room shaped by a built-in corner fireplace that also creates a mantel-top display area. A petite kitchen with breakfast bar sits at the other end of the open space adjacent to a dining area. The bedroom has en-suite access to the dual-entry bathroom and a stacked laundry unit is inside the walk-in closet. A door in the bedroom leads out to a rear porch landing that looks out on a shared yard.

Frank Lloyd Wright-Inspired Angles in Bethesda

Over in Bethesda, this Frank Lloyd Wright-style house appears to emerge out of its landscaped slope, a gentle slope that is referenced throughout the interior. An open main level living area is laid out under an asymmetrically-pitched post-and-beam ceiling. Tall sets of windows run parallel to the ceiling, and wood wraps the partial wall dividing the formal dining room from the kitchen. A cluster of windows converge at a corner of the main floor, creating a sunroom-like area that remains open to the adjacent sitting room. The ceiling also slopes to double in height in the master bedroom, where handle-less built-in cabinets sit under a triangular array of giant windows. A partial wall separates the sleeping area from the sun-drenched soaking tub.
