by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes two rowhouses with semi-symmetrical façades and stacked units.


Best New Listings: The Symmetry and Separate Units Edition: Figure 1

A Rowhouse with a Rental

Between Lincoln Park and the Atlas District, this rowhouse contains two separately-metered units, explaining why its near-symmetrical exterior appearance is thrown slightly off-balance inside. The lower level is a one-bedroom that enters into a light-filled, deep living room with long windows. An exposed brick accent wall lines the dining area and an angular galley kitchen sits behind a windowed wall. The upper-level unit is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom with a balcony that rents for $2,125. In this unit, the stair rail creates a built-in bookshelf in the living room, which also has a closet with a window on one side and a combination of cabinets and shelves on the other.

Opaque Accents in Mount Pleasant

On the outskirts of Mount Pleasant abutting Rock Creek Park, the façade of this rowhouse has a near-symmetrical array of windows made complete by the front door. The dining room has a pass-through window to the galley kitchen on one side and an archway leading to the family room on the other, which evokes a sunroom with a series of alternating windows and doors on the far wall and a Japanese-inspired shoji screen ceiling bringing in additional light. The master suite also echoes that influence, with translucent barn doors creating an opaque privacy screen that encloses the bathroom and the deep dressing room beyond. In the English basement, off-white brick pillars and red concrete stain delineate the living area. The multi-tiered rear paved patio walks up to a two-car garage.
