Six Bedrooms a Stone’s Throw from Silver Spring

This stone and brick Tudor-style home just inside the DC border has the type of features that one often finds outside of the city: a screened-in porch, a stone-paved patio attached to a wooden deck and a fenced-in, landscaped backyard.The corner lot home has a sleek, minimalist kitchen, as well as more classic details like arched doorways and stone fireplaces. With a two-car garage in the backyard as well, the Colonial Village home gives a taste of the suburban life with a DC address.

Three Bedrooms on One of DC’s Hidden Places

One of the many Hidden Places in DC that UrbanTurf has profiled over the years is French Street, a one-block stretch on the border of Shaw and Logan Circle. This three-bedroom home sits on the “hidden” block, and is filled with original details, like a tiled foyer area, ornate brass doorknobs and light fixtures, and a restored banister. A modern kitchen contrasts wood and granite, and that motif is continued in the family room, which also has huge windows on two sides that flood the area with natural light. A loft-like space upstairs opens onto the second bedroom, but is large enough to function as a third bedroom.

  • Full Listing: 938 French Street NW (map)
  • Price: $999,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Footage: 2,125
  • Year Built: 1900
  • Listing Agent: Justin Kitsch, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

    I just wanted to say...this blog is slacking on it's PG County coverage...I'm seeing plenty of NoVA and Montgomery county coverage, but PG is being neglected. For example, I've seen better looking homes listed in University Park for cheaper prices this week, than any of these shown above. Maybe it's all sponsored listings though.
