The master bedroom also enjoys an exposed brick accent wall and a deep picture-window bay with double-height ceiling.

Up the stairs, a den bonus area sits off the landing and the master bedroom has an extra-tall vaulted ceiling and custom closets. The lower level is accessible English basement-style as well as via the interior of the house. The house found a buyer in five days.

A Customizable Four-Square off Rock Creek Park

Over in 16th Street Heights at the end of a street that runs into Rock Creek Park, this four square house offers over fully customizable 2,700 square feet that enticed a buyer three weeks after it hit the market. At least seven rooms in the house are well-poised to be converted for use as bedrooms or could serve as anything from offices to fitness rooms to storage space. Despite its early 20th-century construction, mid-century modern -style built-ins are prevalent throughout the house, creating a corner sectional and sofa under the living room windows and everything from end tables to window seats to shelving and drawer units in the bedrooms. A screened-in porch with glass roof juts into the backyard.
