Radiating in Riverdale

This colonial home in Riverdale Park greets prospective buyers with a storybook exterior. The main level is traditional, but the kitchen is more modern with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and an eclectic tile backsplash. UrbanTurf's favorite part of the home is the attic space, which has been converted into an additional living room with a bathroom and kitchenette area. Though the original fireplaces in the dining room and sitting area are no longer functional, the decorative wood hearths remain and have been partially filled in with colorful tiling and shelving. The basement is unfurnished but acts as a storage and laundry space.

  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Feet: 2,006

Fully Designed in Kenwood

The golden chandelier and curved staircase in the foyer give a sense of what lies beyond in this Hudson Gray-designed home in the Kenwood section of Bethesda. White oak wood floors throughout are laid in a herringbone pattern, and gold and white accents unify the space - exemplified by an entertainment room off the living room with a golden wet bar, gold striped wallpaper and piano area. The primary bedroom includes crown molding, a dark gray color palette and an ensuite bathroom with checkered marble flooring, a soaking tub, dual vanity sinks and a private toilet area. The basement features a main recreation room with custom lockers and a walnut bench. The manicured front yard includes a winding path to the front door, and French doors in the dark green formal dining room open to the backyard.

Renovated Farmhouse in Silver Spring

During a refurbishment a few years back, the owners of this Silver Spring listing were careful to ensure that vintage details were preserved - such as the wooden ceiling beams and farmhouse shape. The open living space on the main floor includes a large stone fireplace connected to the dining area and front entry. The primary suite upstairs includes a walk-in closet, a spa-like bathroom with marble floors and countertops, a double vanity, a walk-in shower and a soaking tub. There's also an attached room that could act as a nursery. The fenced backyard offers a hot tub, stone patio, raised deck, a fountain and a small storage shed. The home was built in 1908 by Robert H. McNeill, whose farmland became Robert H. McNeill's Addition to Silver Spring Park.
