A Del Ray Bungalow with Picturesque Backyard and Studio

Unlike many bungalows we see on the market, this one feels very bright and open inside, perhaps because the historic Alexandria home was rehauled in 2010. Out front is a wide porch, and the outdoor space is equally nice out back, where a big lawn and patio may look particularly enticing to a city dweller. The home has a finished basement, but perhaps the coolest aspect is the separate studio housed out back.

A Tucked Away Capitol Hill Carriage House

Capitol Hill is filled with tucked away, smaller residences that most people don’t know about until they are listed for sale. This former carriage house behind 645 Constitution Avenue NE is just such a property. The residence has been designed to let in a lot of natural light, with several skylights situated around the home. Two of the cooler aspects are a wood-burning stove on the second level and a built-in garage downstairs. The kitchen could use some updating and the second bedroom is currently being used as a den.

  • Full Listing: 645 Rear Constitution Avenue NE (map)
  • Price: $574,500
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 929
  • Listing Agents: Elsa Huxley, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

A High-End Renovation of a Mid-Century Modern Near Rock Creek Park

You might not know it from the exterior, but this home has been renovated to a luxe standard. The house, which sits on a corner lot abutting Rock Creek Park in Barnaby Woods, was customized by local architecture firm Grupo 7 in 2008, and has a large kitchen with an eat-in island separated by an open living-and-dining space, with massive picture windows that look out to a patio and yard. The lower level is currently set up as a massive rec room, but it doesn’t look like the ping pong table conveys.

  • Full Listing: 2601 Rittenhouse Street NW (map)
  • Price: $1,350,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1947
  • Listing Agents: David Getson, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
