This week's Best New Listings includes a top-floor condo in Columbia Heights, the former home of a dairy farmer in Takoma Park and a Victorian-style house Del Ray. 


The Dairy Farm Bungalow

This blue bungalow in Takoma Park was part of a working dairy farm when it was first built in 1918. A screened front patio leads into the living room, which has a multitude of windows and a white brick fireplace. The open kitchen features light wood cabinetry, a ceiling fan, green granite counters and a half-wall and doorway that lead to the formal dining room. A bedroom on the main level makes for ideal office space, and the other two bedrooms upstairs offer ample closet space and share a bathroom with white and black tiling. Basement renovations include a radiant-heated ceramic tile floor in the living space, a bathroom and a laundry room. The backyard is fully fenced and includes a storage shed.
