NoVa Best New Listings: The Glass Patio With a View Underground

by Jamie Liu

Today on UrbanTurf, all the articles that you see will be related solely to homes — big, small, for sale, not for sale, in DC and far outside the city. Enjoy!

In this week’s edition of NoVa Best New Listings, UrbanTurf looks at three properties including an 1870s townhouse in Old Town with a glass patio that looks down into the basement.


NoVa Best New Listings: The Glass Patio With a View Underground: Figure 1

This two-bedroom loft-like unit is located in the Wooster and Mercer Lofts, an 87-unit project on Queen Street where Rosslyn and Courthouse meet. The 1,672 square-foot open plan condo has a slight industrial feel with lofty ceilings, large windows, and exposed pipes. Brazilian cherry hardwood floors run throughout, and a 600+ square-foot patio offers a good deal of outdoor space.

This Del Ray townhome is a perfect starter house with a traditional floor plan and two bedrooms. Those who cook regularly may find the kitchen small, but a cut out between it and the dining room opens up the room slightly and provides some extra counter space. A rear deck allows for outdoor entertaining with plenty of space for a grill, and a finished basement with exposed brick provides extra recreational space.

Appearances are a little deceiving with this 1870s Alexandria townhouse. The exterior has the look of a Georgetown federal rowhouse, but the interior and rear of the home have been renovated in a modern style. Undoubtedly the most striking feature of the home is the glass patio that looks down into the basement rec room. (More on how this feature came together in UrbanTurf next week.) The gourmet kitchen of the home features an island, marble counters, a double wide refrigerator, and a six-burner Viking stove. There are dark hardwood floors throughout, and all the bathrooms have been completely renovated.

    The update was supposed to be live last week-did I miss it? "More on how this feature came together in UrbanTurf next week" That backyard is crazy so I am looking forward to reading about it.

    Jon/James, UrbanTurf has reached out to the owners. Once they respond, we will move forward with the follow-up article. Hopefully it will be this week. Thanks, The Editors
