The finished attic offers a bonus room under a cove ceiling, while the basement has a rec room, the fourth bedroom and a full bath.

Nine Days for Five Bedrooms in Upper Chevy Chase
Recent updates on this near-symmetrical Tudor colonial by its architect-owner put a contemporary spin on what reads as a classic house. A front porch sits at the center of the exterior, with the lattice-patterned front door on one side and a door to the library, with its wall of modern built-ins, on the other. The owner's suite has a walk-in closet and a marble-floored dressing room attached to the en-suite bath. The above-grade lower level enjoys the bulk of the home's most attractive amenities, not only offering a bedroom complete with a Murphy bed, a full bath, and, separate storage space, but also a wet bar, a rec room with projection screen and a sauna. A covered rear porch overlooks a small pond, a slate patio with fireplace beneath a pergola, and the spacious backyard. The house also has a detached two-car garage. The home found a buyer after about a week on the market.

25 Days for Updated Victorian in Shaw
This 19th-century Victorian rowhouse in Shaw offers just as much square footage as the aforementioned tudor in Chevy Chase. Despite retaining finishes typical to the neighborhood, like a tiled vestibule, archtop bay windows and fireplaces with decorative elements, the interior was given a modern facelift. The kitchen with double exposure at the back of the main level is decidedly contemporary, featuring a breakfast bar island along with a full-height glass door that leads out to the stone-paved rear yard. The owner's bedroom has a bay window seating nook and a customized walk-in closet, as well as an en-suite with a decorative fireplace alcove. The house also has a roof deck, a two-car garage and an English basement with one bedroom and wet bar. It went under contract in just under a month.
