A Renovated 89-Year-Old Rowhouse Under Contract in Five Days

The traditional facade of this Foxhall Village three-bedroom masks a modern interior. Inside, there are wide doorways, recessed lighting in high ceilings and a kitchen with black cabinets and glass lighting fixtures that hang over an island with a breakfast bar. One exposed rafter separates the kitchen from a seating area and doors that lead to a narrow, but long backyard. The listing, which went under contract in about five days, comes with a two-car parking pad.

Contemporary in Foggy Bottom

Like the Foxhall house above, this large two-bedroom has a facade that disguises a contemporary interior. The listing opens into a formal living area with a fireplace before leading into an open dining room and then a family room towards the back of the house. The kitchen is placed against the back wall, taking up little space on the home’s first floor and allowing more space for the living area. Doors and ceiling-height windows make up the back wall, and behind that is the a brick patio. Upstairs the bathrooms feature glass-walled showers, brushed metal taps and square basins. The home found a buyer in about six days.
