In this week’s NoVa Best New Listings, we take a look at a Del Ray Craftsman with a sunroom that puts other similar spaces to shame, an 1820s Old Town row house with brick flooring, and an Old Town townhouse with built-in storage galore.

NoVa Best New Listings: A Sunroom, Brick Floors, and Built-Ins: Figure 1

Del Ray Craftsman With Sophisticated Sunroom

The light-filled sitting room in this five-bedroom Del Ray home illustrates the difference between a sun porch and a sunroom. A sun porch is typically a roofed, porch-like addition to a home that serves as a nice three-season space. A sunroom is a completely integrated, window-filled four-season room. The sunroom in this attractive Craftsman has huge paned picture windows and warm wood flooring, and is a seamless part of the main-level floorplan.

Old Town End-Unit Row House with Built-In Storage

This three-bedroom brick end-unit just a few blocks from the Alexandria waterfront threatens to ruin the reputation of townhouses as small homes with little to no storage. The main level has a good-sized, open floorplan, and one can hardly turn around in the home without running into some sort of built-in storage—whether under the kitchen breakfast bar, on either side of the living room fireplace, or taking up an entire wall in the lower-level family room.

Historic Old Town Colonial with Brick Flooring

Some Old Town homes that boast historic plaques on their facades have interiors that have been pretty much erased of any old-fashioned charm. This two-bedroom, 1.5-bath row house has maintained a good deal of its 1800’s charm, most notably in the kitchen. The galley-style space has updated lighting and appliances, but an old-fashioned red brick floor.
