Best New Listings: A Large Lot and a Library Ladder: Figure 1

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.

Quirky Custom Rowhouse on Capitol Hill

Constructed at the turn of the century, this narrow Lincoln Park rowhouse is full of personality. Beyond the foyer is a checkerboard-tiled hallway with an exposed brick wall, leading to a family/dining room at the front of the house that enjoys a bay window and a set of built-in bookcases on either side of an inset fireplace. 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.
