This week’s Best New Listings include a converted corner condo at The Cairo, a renovated Truxton Circle rowhouse and a solar-powered home in Berkley.
A Two-Story Two-Bedroom in Truxton Circle
On a block in Truxton Circle, this renovated two-story Federal rowhouse offers more living space than the typical two-bedroom home in DC. Crown molding edges the interior of the entire house, while tall windows sit in nearly every room. Exposed brick runs along the wall in the living and dining areas, leading to the galley kitchen with tray ceiling. Just beyond the kitchen is a den with French doors that open onto the fenced-in backyard, where a brick pathway winds alongside a garden area and leads to a patio and a detached shed.
A Berkley Home That Runs on the Sun
This Berkley colonial sports energy-efficient upgrades in the form of solar panels and heated floors. The main level has a study with two built-ins bookending a large window with sill seating. On the top level, the landing walks into a bonus space that leads to the largest bedroom in the house, complete with angular built-ins on either side of a dormer window, sloped ceilings and an en-suite bath. The basement level has a wood-paneled family room with direct access to the attached garage. The wood paneling is echoed in the skylit rear solarium on the ground floor, which also has built-ins and overlooks the landscaped rear yard, complete with pool.
Two Condos Combined in The Cairo
Over in The Cairo, a 19th-century Beaux Arts building on the edge of Dupont Circle, lies this corner condo that was converted from a two-bedroom into a one-bedroom. The living room is framed with oversized windows and exposed brick walls across from a tripartite wooden built-in shelving unit. The adjacent dining area also houses a window in an accent brick wall. The farmhouse-style kitchen nook has rustic wood counters and shelves and a retro-style pastel Smeg refrigerator. The brick walls continue into the bedroom, where the smartly-finished bathroom offsets pastel walls with honeycomb shower tile and a vessel sink.
