Best New Listings: A Vegetable Garden, A Penthouse and A Bit of History

by Shilpi Paul

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a Silver Spring Tudor with a raised vegetable garden, the top-floor unit in a Mount Pleasant townhouse, and a Takoma Park Victorian with historic credibility.

Silver Spring Tudor With a Vegetable Garden

With their pointy roofs and darkly-wooded timbering, Tudors have a medieval, fairy tale-esque feeling to them. On the interior of this Silver Spring Tudor, renovators did some layout alchemy and managed to fit six bedrooms into a relatively small floorplan. The finished attic and basement help: the attic is now a master suite with a giant bathroom and a study, and the basement has a living room, bathroom and yet another bedroom. The backyard is well landscaped and has a slate patio, grass expanse, hammock and a raised vegetable garden.

Top-Floor Unit in Mount Pleasant Condo Conversion

In 2009, a vacant Mount Pleasant townhouse was turned into a six-unit condo project, and this top-floor unit is one of the largest at 1,302 square feet. The master bedroom is on the attic floor, and the attached bathroom reveals a little creativity on the part of the developers: a shower sits right in the center of what appears to be a peaked-roof attic space, right under two skylights. There is also parking for two cars, including one garage space.

Historically Significant in Takoma Park

In a neighborhood full of bungalows, this Victorian not only stands out for its design, but also its history. The six-bedroom home was carefully reconstructed on the foundation of (and in the style of) the Holmes House, an 1888 property that burned in a fire. At some point following the fire, the large home was carved up into six apartments; the current owners turned it back into a family home, but kept two one-bedroom units on the top floor for renters.
