NoVa Best New Listings: A Screened Porch, A Skylight Shower, and A Brick Bedroom

by Sarah Godfrey

In this week’s NoVa Best New Listings, we take a look at Country Club Hills rambler with a screened porch as nice as some formal living rooms, a Rosemont Cape Cod with a shower built into the slope of its roof, and an Aurora Hills four-bedroom that could renew interest in exposed brick.

Arlington Four-Bedroom with Luxury Screened Porch

Most screened porches, as lovely as they are, tend to be no-frills spaces. This Country Club Hills home has the sort of screened porch one would expect from a house with a million-dollar price tag. There’s whitewashed wood paneling, stained and polished hardwood floors, French doors leading into the house, upscale light fixtures, and even skylights. Frankly, the porch is nice enough to serve as a living room, and the home’s living room—with cathedral ceilings and bay windows—is downright palatial.

Rosemont Cape Cod with Sloped Shower

Fancy tile work, marble, glass showers and clawfoot tubs are nice bathroom features to have, but they’ve become commonplace—it’s exceedingly rare to find a really uniquely designed bathroom. The upper-level bath in this Rosemont Cape Cod is an exception, though. Although you may find the pedestal sink and tilework in other homes, the shower stall is slanted, built right into the slope of the roof, making it fairly unique.

Three-Bedroom Rambler with Brick Bedroom

In the 1990s, the term “exposed brick” turned up in countless real estate listings. These days, it’s not quite as prevalent. This Aurora Hills four-bedroom makes one wonder why everyone ever stopped cooing over this particular home feature. A brick accent wall warms up a secondary bedroom so well, it makes one want to start chipping away all boring, white plaster walls, to see what lies beneath.

    Completely disagree with the observation about exposed brick. It's everywhere. So much so that it is losing it's appeal,
