In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at one of the oldest homes in Crestwood, a two-bedroom Victorian near Eastern Market, and a five-bedroom Colonial in Bethesda with a very pointy roof.
One of the Older Homes in Crestwood
Built in 1914, this six-bedroom Arts and Crafts house is one of the oldest in the neighborhood of Crestwood. There are plenty of cool rooms — a sun room, sleeping porch and not one, but two master suites on the second floor — as well as a number of woodsy elements, like heart of pine wall paneling in the dining room and oak flooring with mahogany inlay throughout the house. The location is also a plus, just a couple blocks from Rock Creek Park and the Carter Barron Amphitheater.

Two-Bedroom Around the Corner from Eastern Market
The semi-detached positioning of this two-bedroom listing, in addition to the skylights, make it much brighter than your average row house. The 1,704 square foot home (spacious for a two-bedroom) has an extra large master suite and big living areas. UrbanTurf really liked the design choices, too — the teal backsplash in the kitchen and slate-colored tile in the bathroom are striking, and the wood stove in the master bedroom surrounded by black tile is also a nice touch. The house comes with a private brick patio and is half a block from Barracks Row and around the corner from Eastern Market.

Bethesda Colonial With Slanted Ceilings
The most intriguing thing about this 2,585 square-foot Bethesda home is the exterior: what do the rooms look like when a roof is that pointy? Judging from the photos, mostly normal, with just a couple slanty-ceilinged bedrooms. This five-bedroom colonial has a large backyard with a BBQ-ready deck, patio and space for a swing set, and a number of bright living areas inside. The top level has a large master suite and three medium-sized bedrooms, and there is a fifth bedroom on the main floor and a finished rec room in the basement.

- Price: $1.25 million
- Bedrooms: Five
- Bathrooms: 3.5
