Best New Listings: Moving Walls, Classic Bungalow, and Stained Glass
In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a Dupont Circle studio with moving walls, a classic Takoma Park bungalow, and a Capitol Hill Victorian with stained glass transoms.
Moving Walls in Dupont Circle
The current owners found a few ways to make this 753-square foot studio into something more livable: moving walls can be configured to create a bedroom, a built-in storage system in the living room frees up floor space, and the wavy, wall-sized custom bookshelf is just cool. They also added subtle track lighting to various rooms in the terrace-level unit, which doesn’t have too many windows (although there is a patio in the backyard). Overall, it has a “designer” touch that makes a potentially dark, plain home into one that is light and trendy.
- Full listing: 1504 17th Street NW, #2 (map)
- Price: $399,000
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
- Square Footage: 753
- Listing Agent: Thomas Lewis, Redfin Corporation
Classic Takoma Park Bungalow
For house hunters searching for a vintage bungalow, this Takoma Park three-bedroom just came on the market. The home has the wide porch, woodwork and overall warmth you would expect from a bungalow, in addition to a few perks: an open floor plan connects the living and dining areas, and a finished attic and lower level increase the livable space. The current owners also enjoy the proximity to Spring Park, a community gathering place where dog owners converge every morning and the occasional birthday party takes place.
- Full listing: 201 Spring Avenue, Takoma Park, MD (map)
- Price: $499,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1933
- Listing Agent: Margaret Finn, Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc.
Stained Glass Transoms in Capitol Hill
This Capitol Hill Victorian is well-located (between Stanton Park and Lincoln Park), stately and charming, with touches like stained glass transoms and an iron porch. Typical Victorian features — bay windows, crown molding — can be found throughout the house; the bay area in the master bedroom is currently being used as an office nook. A lover of built-ins swept through at some point, creating extensive shelving in the kitchen and a bedroom. Finally, the basement is half-finished, and could be used as an exercise area or man cave.
- Full listing: 804 A Street NE (map)
- Price: $759,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Year Built: 1900
- Listing Agent: David Getson, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
