Six Days for a Turn-of-the-21st-Century Victorian

This Victorian-style house on a corner in Cherrydale went under contract in less than a week. The house boasts multiple stacked outdoor spaces, starting with a wraparound porch a step up from the wraparound path beneath. A screened-in porch on the main level is accessible through french doors in the living room and the eat-in kitchen, and the family room has french doors into a bonus room with a bay window. Upstairs, a large landing leads out to a second wraparound terrace, which is also accessible from the spacious owner's bedroom that has a standalone fireplace and wet bar. The uppermost landing is skylit, doubles as a loft-like space and also has access to a terrace, along with an octagonal bedroom with cupola and another bedroom with terrace access.

Three Days for Mid-Century Modern

This house on a Bethesda cul-de-sac spent just three days on the market before finding a buyer, and is full of architectural elements that set it apart from the typical mid-century modern house. Both the living room and the dining room have walls of irregularly stacked windows and are separated from each other by a double-sided breakfast bar peninsula. In between, a door leads out to a pentagonal screened-in porch with a ceiling fan and framing reminiscent of the window arrays. The hall has access to a deck on the way to the owner's bedroom with bay-style window sets, and the carpeted lower level has another hexagonal bedroom and walks out to a partially-covered patio and a vegetated lot beyond.
