In this week’s NoVa Best New Listings, we take a look at a beautifully renovated ’20s foursquare, a colorful contemporary townhouse near the East Falls Church Metro, and a Cherrydale rambler with a cute little reading nook.
Renovated ’20s Foursquare in Clarendon
American Foursquare homes are also referred to as “Prarie box” houses, because of their boxy shape and four-room floorplan. This 1920s four-bedroom listing has that distinct boxy shape, but the four-room floorplan was completely tossed out during a pretty amazing renovation of the Clarendon home. The first level was completely opened up, and lovely wood framing and a few support columns are all that remain of the original multi-room layout. Many later Foursquare homes have open main-level floorplans, so despite the renovation, this property is still a home an architectural purists could enjoy.

Bright Contemporary Townhouse near East Falls Church Metro
The interiors of contemporary modern homes are usually all about sleek lines, minimal fixtures and lots and lots of white paint. As beautiful and simple as that can be, it can also be a little bit dull. The owners of this contemporary three-bedroom townhouse decided to throw a little color on the walls—a bright yellow living room, a robin’s egg blue kitchen/dining area, and a mango-colored master suite. Any buyer could of course just repaint every room in bright white, but what fun is that?

Cherrydale Rambler with Reading Nook
Reading in bed is a great way to unwind, but it always carries the risk of nodding off after just a few pages. Reading in the living room guarantees getting through more chapters, but then there is the risk of falling asleep on the couch after a marathon page-turning session, and waking up with a stiff neck and a sore back. The reading nook just off of the master bedroom in this two-bedroom Cherrydale rambler offers an excellent solution to this age-old dilemma. It’s not so comfy that the reader will drift off to sleep right away, but when fatigue does eventually set in, the bed is just a few steps away.

- Price: $525,000
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: Two
