Double-Height Spaces and Abundant Built-Ins

After just five days on the market, this center-hall colonial in Woodley Park has gone under contract. Eye-catching details abound, including most impressively the great room where the ceiling reaches double-height approaching the stacked windows. A built-in desk surrounded by cabinetry seamlessly segues into the next room, a bright kitchen with marble backsplash. Along with having a formal dining room, the house also has a similarly-sized breakfast room under a pitched ceiling with another wall of stacked windows on one side and oversized windows bookending a set of french doors leading out to the deck. The top level contains the skylit owner's suite, which has built-ins on three walls, two dressing rooms and a private terrace.

Six Days for a Single-Family Home-esque Condo

This single-story Dupont Circle condo somehow seems more like a single-family home, especially because of the stone-clad rowhouse exterior and front porch. The unit has an entry vestibule leading to a wide foyer with a doorway-sized built-in mirror, creating the illusion of more space. The high-ceilinged living room directly opposite has a gently curving bay window and a wood-burning fireplace with built-in mirror. Overlooking this room, the kitchen has floor-to-ceiling cabinetry and a breakfast bar with lateral built-in shelves. A glass-paned door opens onto a bright den with a tiled fireplace and floor-to-ceiling built-ins on either side. The owner's suite has a pair of closets beneath concealed storage cubbies. The unit also has a rear patio with privacy screening.

Blue Brookland Bungalow with Built-ins

Over in Brookland, this unassuming blue bungalow was on the market for just over a week before finding a buyer. The interior makes efficient use of its 1,443 square feet, with the kitchen using a separate nook to house the oven and containing cabinetry flanked with open shelving at the corners. One of the bedrooms is on the main level and has a sunroom-like sitting room attached, along with french doors leading out to a wooden deck that looks out on the expansive backyard and steps down to a slate patio. The second bedroom has an attached office, while the owner's suite has a cove ceiling and a wall with a series of stepped built-in units sandwiching windows above a built-in bench. The lower level can function as a studio or an au-pair suite.
