NoVa Best New Listings: Barcroft, Clarendon, Overlee Knolls

by Sarah Godfrey

In this week’s NoVa Best New Listings, we take a look at a Barcroft Cape Cod with plush kitchen seating, a Clarendon condo that comes with a private patio and a gas grill, and a four-bedroom Overlee Knolls Colonial with an old-fashioned, wood-paneled living room.

One-Bedroom Loft at The Wooster

A one-bedroom condo that costs more than a half-million dollars that isn’t in Dupont Circle or Georgetown seems like it would be a hard sell, but this loft at The Wooster in Clarendon, with its open floorplan and outdoor space, is pretty stunning. The best feature may be the gigantic bedroom window that looks out onto a 300 square foot private patio. Still think that you should get a few more perks for the $650,000 price tag? The place comes with its own natural gas outdoor grill and has 1,400 square feet of interior space.

Barcroft Four-Bedroom With Luxury Kitchen Seating

There’s sort of an unspoken agreement between hosts of casual dinner parties and their guests: The person throwing the dinner works his/her fingers to the bone preparing a nice meal, and the guests cram into the hot, cramped kitchen and keep the host company while they do it. The unselfish owners of this Barcroft Cape Cod—which boasts four huge bedrooms and a sunroom “conservatory”—seem to have tossed out that informal contract. The gourmet kitchen includes a huge window nook filled with plush, overstuffed seating, giving any dinner party guests a great view of the cook’s hard work, without forcing them to share in any heat and discomfort.

Overlee Knolls Colonial with Wood-Paneled Living Room

Wood paneling found in homes in the DC area generally falls into two categories—cheap wood-look planks that scream 1970’s rumpus room and beautifully finished wood walls that look like something one would find in a charming Vermont bed-and-breakfast inn. The wood work in the living room of this huge Overlee Knolls four-bedroom falls in the latter category—it is charming and beautifully maintained. And for times when this part of the home seems too stately, there is a lower level sports-themed family room with a giant Redskins mural that can be painted over or kept intact, depending on one’s allegiance to the hometown football team.

    The Wooster is most definitely not Clarendon. Rosslyn or Courthouse, sure.

    The unit at the Wooster is not a one bedroom. Its a large studio. The wall behind the chair in the living area is the divider between the living space and the sleeping space. Further, Arlington realtors have the really bad habit of listing units in this building as having more bedrooms than they really do by counting rooms that have no windows as a "bedroom." Yes, you can fit a bed in these spaces but with no window and often no doors, I'd hardly call that kind of space a bedroom. There are units currently mislisted (in my opinion) in the Wooster and Mercer sitting on the market now.
