Three Weeks for History in Hyattsville

Spanning over 2,600 square feet, this four-bedroom house has an interior befitting its status as a designated historic site just outside the Hyattsville Historic District. The living room has a deep tray ceiling and a window seat flanked by floor-to-ceiling built-ins, and the kitchen has a pressed tin ceiling with a recessed display shelf just beneath. The owner's bedroom occupies the top level under a skylit cove ceiling, enjoying a spacious sitting area with floor-to-ceiling built-ins, and a dressing room-style custom closet sits on the floor below. The extensive rear deck sits between a detached two-car garage and a 750 square-foot accessory studio with powder room, built-ins, and exposed wood trusses beneath the tall pitched ceiling. The yard wraps around the buildings and also includes a pond with a petite bridge. The house went under contract 22 days after being listed.

Five Days in Foxhall Village

This three-bedroom end-unit rowhouse in Foxhall Village is steps from the Foundry Branch Valley Park and blocks from the C&O Canal.
