  • July 21st 2023

by Ashley Hopko

This week's Best New Listings includes a modern cottage in Chevy Chase, a condo just off U Street and a mid-century modern listing in Falls Church. 


A Curated Chevy Chase Cottage

The primary living room of this large Chevy Chase cottage boasts 15- foot pitched ceilings with exposed wooden beams, built-in bookshelves, a fireplace hearth, a recessed liquor cabinet and an exit to a manicured back patio. UrbanTurf's favorite feature of the home is the circular dining space, with two sets of French doors opening to the patio beyond. On the top floor, converted attic space would be perfectly suited to an at-home office or child's bedroom, due to the uniquely angled walls. The basement features a sound-buffered movie room and wine fridge.

Mid-Century Modern in Falls Church With an ADU

Renovated in 2020, this one-story mid-century modern home is located in the Holmes Run Acres neighborhood, known for its place on the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places.

A fireplace divides the large living room, which includes sliding door access to the back patio. With blue shower tiling, a skylight and floating shelves, the bathroom has a modern feel. An accessory dwelling unit in the backyard would make for a perfect office or art studio, as it is fully finished and includes air conditioning and heat.
