This week's Best New Listings includes a five-bedroom mid-century modern home in Bethesda, an extra wide rowhome on Capitol Hill and another mid-century modern in Falls Church.


Five-Bedroom Mid-Century Modern

This fully reimagined two-level, mid-century modern home in Bethesda includes big windows, warm wood dealing and an open floor plan. Red oak hardwood floors are found throughout the main level and accentuate the gray stone wood-burning fireplace in the center of the main room, while floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights illuminate the space. The kitchen includes a 12-foot central island, floor-to-ceiling wooden cabinets, a nook for a kitchen table or lounge and a door leading to the large deck. The primary suite on the main level includes an en-suite bathroom with dual vanity round stone sinks and a waterfall shower built for a couple. An additional sitting room downstairs includes a wet bar and a glass sliding door leading outside. A two-car garage offers extra storage.

Unusually Wide Row Home on Capitol Hill

Walking up to this Capitol Hill row home, a covered porch with a front garden and white brick exterior welcomes guests. The home retained its original hardwood floors and exposed brick walls are found throughout. The kitchen and dining areas flow together over a central island, and an indoor addition at the back of the home leads to a fenced backyard, lined with garden boxes. All three bedrooms on the top floor share a bathroom but the primary suite has extra square footage and offers an offshoot that can act like a home office. Rooftop solar panels help keep the monthly electric bill to a minimum.
