Traditional Trinidad Rowhouse

This recently-renovated Trinidad rowhouse boasts a lot of living space and a lot of natural light.

The master bedroom has a cathedral ceiling and double closets. The basement has a separate rear entrance and can serve as a full in-law suite.

Cute as a Button off Barracks Row

Two things caught UrbanTurf’s eye when deciding to highlight this new listing: the original wood beams that run along the ceiling of the main level and the flagstone patio that stretches out the back of the house. The two-bedroom row house just around the corner from Rose’s Luxury also has hardwood floors throughout, a fireplace and spacious renovated kitchen.

International Style in Michigan Park

Over in Michigan Park, this International-style modern mid-century house has only had two prior owners. The house was designed and built in 1960 by notable local architect Louis Giles, Jr.; the most-recent owners carefully updated the finishes of the house in keeping with the vintage and aesthetic of the home. The minimalist, multi-level interior takes advantage of 18-foot ceilings, while a wall of glass in the living room overlooks the rear terrace and garden with its cooling pool water feature. For a modern touch, the house also has an electric car charger built into the carport.
