In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at three different styles of single-family homes in Takoma Park, Lanier Heights and Silver Spring.

Classic Takoma Park Bungalow with Vaulted Ceilings

This three-bedroom has everything you would expect from a Takoma Park bungalow: vintage finishings, a sturdy feel, a wide front porch, heart pine floors and original woodwork. The kitchen and bathrooms have retro details, like gold trim and elaborately carved cabinets, and what may have once been an unfinished attic is now a large master suite with a vaulted ceiling and skylights. The row of homes that this listing is a part of stands out for their particularly deep backyards, the agent tells us, making for a park-like, forested feel.

Lanier Heights Row House With a Long Footprint

At 1,918 square feet, this federal-style row house seems pretty spacious, with wide rooms and a long footprint. The first floor has been extended and goes on for awhile, leading with a big living room, followed by a second living nook, a dining room, a renovated kitchen with an eating area, a sunroom, and finally a back deck. The second story also stretches back, with three bedrooms and an office area. For those that might not be familiar with the area, Lanier Heights in a quiet neighborhood tucked between Adams Morgan and Mount Pleasant.

Mid-Century Modern in Maryland

Shrubbery and trees encompass the yard of this four-bedroom home, which sits in Hammond Wood, a neighborhood full of homes designed by contemporary architect Charles Goodman in 1949. The homes all have “walls of glass” that maximize indoor light, but somehow keep up the privacy: Goodman designed the walls to angle away from neighbors. A few additions have been put on this home since it went up in 1951, including a den and a large master suite. The finishings feel very retro and come in many shades of brown.
