Curb Appeal in Takoma Park

Like the majority of Takoma Park bungalows, this five-bedroom has impressive curb appeal. A wide set of steps leads to a generous front porch, and then into a living room with a fireplace. The dining room to the right leads back to a two-person breakfast bar and the kitchen. A bright sunroom with windows spanning all three outward facing walls gets a lot of natural light and has views of perhaps the home’s best assets: a good-sized deck and a deep backyard.

Renovated and Reconfigured in Kent

This colonial in DC’s Kent neighborhood was fully renovated and reconfigured for a buyer that will do a good deal of entertaining. The main living space in the seven-bedroom house has dark hardwood floors and rows of wide windows. UrbanTurf likes the long kitchen that looks out into the living room off the back of the listing. Other favorite aspects include the home’s large deck, which has space for multiple patio sets, and the master suite with its separate sitting area.
