Contemporary Condo on The Hill With a Hidden Nursery

Jenkins Row, built in 2007, was one of the first new developments to go up on the east side of Capitol Hill. Now the area is seeing a lot of change. The complex is pretty big, with 247 units, and has a warm, contemporary atmosphere, with lots of windows but traditional moldings and cabinets. This 680 square-foot unit has a huge walk-in closet, which apparently is being used as a very small nursery right now. UrbanTurf also liked the relatively high view.

Berkley Cape Cod With a Long Lap Pool

This Cape Cod has a deceptively modest interior concealing some very cool rooms, like a dining room with a sloped ceiling and skylights, a media room that looks to be a movie-watching cave, and a small office nook. UrbanTurf’s favorite room is the library, which looks like the inside of a ship (see above), with dark wooden built-ins, textured walls, a skylight and lots of coziness. We generally like the balance of cave-like rooms to open, window-filled spaces. If this home gets snapped up quickly enough, the new owners will also have a chance to cool off in the very long swimming pool in the backyard.

Bethesda Cape Cod with Hammock Posts

For people who move out to the suburbs looking for extremely large closets, a family room with space for a big screen TV and a plump sectional, and a couple posts to hang a hammock on, this Bethesda three-bedroom home will satisfy. We also loved the kitchen, which has what looks like Mexican tile, the fact that the basement level has so many windows and is actually bright, and the Rod Stewart fan art (unclear if they convey). The house has been renovated in pieces over the past ten years and looks updated.
