Four Days for Three Stories in Bethesda

The living room has built-in shelving and cabinet units on either side of a pair of windows above a fireplace. There's no partition between the kitchen and family room, and the former has a built-in corner bar, a breakfast bar island, a chevron tile backsplash, a hood with stainless steel backsplash above the stove, and a farmhouse sink. The latter has a fireplace and sliding glass doors out to the deck and the generous backyard. There is a second laundry room upstairs, and the owner's bedroom has a skylight beside a wall of built-in closets and drawers. The house also has a lower level with rec room and unfinished storage space, a detached shed, and an interior two-car garage.

A Week for a House with a Studio
This live/work-ready semi-detached brick house in Brookland went under contract a week after being listed. At the end of its driveway, the garage was converted into a studio/workspace with concrete floors and painted brick walls. Inside the house and off the foyer, the living room has double exposure and a non-functioning brick corner fireplace, and a dining area is separated from the kitchen by a breakfast bar peninsula. The kitchen has butcher block countertops, lion's-head drawer pulls, a stainless steel hood above the stove, and also has direct access to the living room through a separate butler's pantry/bar room. The upstairs landing has a hutch built into a nook and dual access to a covered balcony above the main deck. The lower level has a separate entrance, a rec room, a laundry area with sink and countertop, and a bedroom suite, and the backyard also has another driveway and a patio area.

Nearly a Year for Cleveland Park Queen Anne
Just over a block off Wisconsin Avenue, this turn-of-the-century Queen Anne-style house was built at the turn of the century when Cleveland Park was on a trolley route. Its round turret is surrounded by a similarly rounded wraparound porch, and the turret's shape creates a rounded bay in the living room. The foyer has a bench built in, and the dining room has triple exposure and a nook with a fireplace flanked with narrow built-ins. The family room has a recessed display cabinet and, along with the eat-in kitchen, offers access to the wooden deck. The owner's bedroom also enjoys the turret, and in the garden-framed backyard, moss peeks up through the brick patio and there are brick partition-flanked steps down to a lawn area. The house also has a garage and views of the National Cathedral. It was first listed last February, spent a few months off the market and went under contract earlier this month.
