This week’s Best New Listings include two Northeast homes with unexpected green features.
Brick Walls and Wood Panels on Linden Place
This three-story Victorian rowhouse about a half-block off the H Street Corridor has exposed brick walls in every room throughout the house, running along the main floor and creating accent walls in the bedrooms and bathrooms. The open main floor enjoys light from both the square bay window at the front and two sets of French doors at the rear. Wood paneling provides contrast to the brick, with a wood-slatted stairwell, wood-paneled cabinetry in the kitchen and wood-paneled closet doors in the bedrooms. The home is not short on energy-efficiency as it comes with a green roof.

The “Bird House” in Brookland
Over in Brookland, this cute, boxy cottage runs off a rooftop solar array and has more space than meets the eye, taking advantage of a grade-change and a deep backyard. The interior is clean and minimalistic, using varied flooring to add interest to the house. Hardwoods are throughout the main level; the next floor is down a flight of stairs, where the living room and two bedrooms have cork flooring. Down another flight on the basement level is a bamboo-floored in-law suite with kitchenette and a bedroom that opens onto a sunroom.
