Cleveland Park Condo That Was Featured on HGTV

At some point, this Cleveland Park condo received the HGTV treatment, and has the stylish flourishes that one might expect from a TV-ready unit. The living room is the most striking area, with a richly painted front wall that includes built-in shelves and a long window seat. Matching dark cut-outs exist in the dining room as display nooks. We also liked the sunroom, which has oversized windows.

Spanish-Style Luxury Home Overlooking the Potomac

This high-end listing sits at the edge of Arlington, right across the Potomac from DC. Several elements contribute to a grandiose feeling in the 4,881-square-foot property. The Spanish-style home has the 13-foot ceilings in the main living area, with windows and bookshelves reaching almost from floor to ceiling, and there is a peaked and skylit ceiling above a second sitting area near the kitchen. That area opens up to a red-tiled patio, which is made private by walls of leafy foliage. Another standout area is a gazebo in the backyard.

Spanish Colonial in Petworth

While this colonial was also inspired by Spanish architecture, it is much more affordable than the option above. The house was built in 1935, and was renovated to maintain the period detailing. The Petworth three-bedroom distinguishes itself from a typical rowhouse with its sunken living room, archways between rooms and wooden beams crossing the living room ceiling. The basement has been finished with hardwood floors and comfortably fits both a family room and an office area, as well as a “mud room” that opens up to the backyard. An unfinished section of the lower level is used as additional storage.

  • Price: $524,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1935
