A Masterful Modern McInturff in Chevy Chase

Noteworthy local architect Mark McInturff completed this custom contemporary home near Rock Creek Park in 1994, and its eclectic design earned several features in the press over the following decade. On the main level, exposed wooden posts and beams criss-cross the living area and the ceiling curves towards the rear of the house, where windows take up the bottom half of the wall framing doors to the rear deck. The deck is surrounded by mature trees on two sides and framed by the house on the other two, with a glazed breezeway providing a buffer between the deck and the family room. The second floor landing overlooks the main living area; this level contains a library with modern built-ins on three sides and the skylit master bedroom with juliet balcony. Two bedrooms share a full bath on the lower level.

Geometric and Not Generic in Cabin John

Sitting on a lot a few blocks from the C&O Canal, this house has interesting angles throughout the interior with a sprawling open concept from the deck-like front porch all the way through to an expansive backyard. Under a pitched ceiling, hardwoods traverse the main level in a giant chevron that seemingly points to the bright, tiled kitchen, arranged in an open octagon that sits opposite an enclosed hexagon that conceals the master suite. The skylit master suite, also on the main level, is introduced by a separate office area, and has a bedroom-sized custom walk-in closet. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom on the second floor. The backyard has a shed and a koi pond.

  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Feet: 2,232

Kid-Friendly Dutch Colonial in Shepherd Park

This renovated Dutch Colonial has a much more classic feel than the two listings above, with a staircase bisecting its floorplan. A recent addition makes the house more spacious than its square footage suggests, creating a kitchen that can accommodate a sizable dining area. The main level has a solarium-style playroom off the living room; similarly, a sunroom creates an office on the second floor. The finished basement, also omitted from the tax records, creates a spacious rec room. The deck off the kitchen has green space on two sides, with a modern playhouse constructed at the tip of the back yard.

  • Full Listing: 1413 Floral Street NW (map)
  • Price: $799,500
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Feet: 1,704
  • Year Built: 1926
  • Listing Agent: Kira Epstein Begal, Washington Fine Properties
