Rectangular, Window-Filled Contemporary in Forest Hills

While much of DC feels traditional and historic, Forest Hills is full of contemporary architecture, with unexpected angles sprouting out of the green, leafy landscape. This 1981-built home fits into that category; the rectangular house is set on a lush lot, surrounded by tall trees. The main living areas are bright, with floor-to-ceiling windows that reach up to a wooden, beamed ceiling. There are also eco-friendly touches, like solar panels and a rooftop garden.

  • Price: $975,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two

Renovated Capitol Hill Rowhouse With a Storage Shed

Since being sold four years ago, a number of renovations have been made to this Capitol Hill home, which is now updated and flows well. Improvements include a new kitchen, bathrooms, and new windows. The home is on the small side for a three-bedroom, but an open floor plan on the main level makes it feel more comfortable. An unfinished basement offers storage space, and the potential for more renovation.

  • Price: $549,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
