This week’s Best New Listings include a cottage in Takoma and a quirky Lincoln Park rowhouse.
A Little House on a Large Lot
Located a short walk from the Takoma Metro, this craftsman cottage is full of trade-offs. The house may be diminutive, yet it sits on a spacious, level lot with a large rear porch and detached garage. Its traditional interior contrasts dark wood trim with original hardwood floors, arched doorways and oversized windows. And while it may only have two bedrooms, the house also has an attic and an unfinished basement, making future expansion a viable option.

At the end of the hall, the brick wall continues into the living room, which also features a custom bar below a rolling library ladder.
