In this week’s Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at a three-bedroom home in Takoma Park with a little California vibe and an Arlington townhouse with quite the library.
A Little California in Takoma Park
This three-bedroom listing is the type of home that buyers looking in Takoma Park pine for, and the bright white California interior only adds to its appeal. The house has a traditional layout and many of its original design features, like arched doorways and original hardwood flooring. The lower level has been cleverly set up with a bedroom space adjacent to what looks like a makeshift recording studio. Outside, there is a large two-level backyard with plenty of design possibilities.

An Arlington Townhouse with Quite a Library
Libraries are frankly not the room that UrbanTurf is drawn to in area listings, largely because most homes in the region don’t have one. But it is hard not to admire the library in this Arlington townhouse, with its floor-to-ceiling dark wood shelves, ornate trim and fireplace. In the living area, a wall of windows and set of glass doors bring in natural light. Outside, there is a two-car garage and the townhouse has access to a private roof deck.
