72 Hours For a Mid-Century Modern With an ADU

Renovated in 2020, this one-story mid-century modern home in Falls Church attracted enough attention that it was off the market three days after being listed. The primary house has a relatively open floor plan, exposed brick, polished concrete flooring and warm wood accents throughout. A fireplace divides the large living room, which includes sliding door access to the back patio. With blue shower tiling, a skylight and floating shelves, the bathroom has a modern feel. An accessory dwelling unit in the backyard would make for a perfect office or art studio, as it is fully finished and includes air conditioning and heat.

  • Bedrooms: Three

3 Days For A $5 Million Georgetown Victorian 

It is not often that homes in DC with high price tags find buyers quickly, but a Georgetown house bucked that trend recently. The French-influenced Victorian listed for just south of $5 million was under contract after three days on the market. The spacious kitchen includes white cabinetry, marble counters, a large central island, as well as French doors that open to a large stone patio area, lined with tall bushes that offer added privacy from neighbors. The formal living room has a grand fireplace, overhead chandeliers and a window inlet, perfect for a game table. A downstairs bathroom has wallpaper reminiscent of a summertime palace in the south of France. The primary suite, which takes up an entire floor, opens to a large roof deck through French doors. A fully finished basement includes a movie room with a fireplace, as well as a guest bedroom and a wine fridge.
