In this week’s NoVa Best New Listings, we take a look at a grand penthouse unit in a luxury building near the Courthouse Metro, a handsome four-level Beverly Hills colonial that comes with a tiny matching playhouse, and a Del Ray duplex with one of the nicest basements in the neighborhood.

The Most Luxurious Unit in a Very Luxurious Building

This three-bedroom penthouse is one of the most impressive units in a building filled with impressive units — The Odyssey, a Shalom Baranes-designed high-rise near the Courthouse Metro station. At over 3,000 square feet, the condo is bigger than a lot of large single family homes, and is in fact two penthouses that were combined by the current owner. The unit has two fireplaces, custom closets, and carrera marble bathrooms, but the best aspects may be the amazing Virginia and DC views, and being close to the rooftop pool and lounge.

Updated Del Ray Duplex with Great Basement Rec Room

Del Ray is a neighborhood known for nice-looking homes…that often sit atop not-so-nice-looking basements. A lot of the houses have above-ground levels that are renovated to the hilt, while basement improvements are often limited to sump pump installation and cobweb removal. This three-bedroom brick home breaks away from that mold. It not only has a breakfast nook, two outdoor porches, and beautiful landscaping, but a basement family room that is a bright extension of the rest of the home.

Stately Colonial with Equally Stately Playhouse

There are plenty of reasons to love this completely renovated four-bedroom Colonial in the Beverly Hills section of Alexandria—lush, azalea-filled grounds, attractive wood moldings, floors, and window frames, and a big marble fireplace in the living room. But if you’re a potential buyer with children, the home’s biggest selling point is probably the backyard. Not only is it filled with interesting paths and plants, but it holds a small child’s playhouse, done up in the same colors as the big house.
