A Contemporary Corner Rowhouse in Petworth

This end-unit rowhouse in Petworth was fully renovated in 2017 by Alter Urban Design Collaborative. Floating translucent glass cabinets with glass shelves delineate the bright living room from the remainder of the main level. Honeycomb cement tiles hand-painted in shades of blue cover the floor of the entry hall, creating a pattern where it meets the hardwoods on the rest of the main level and leading straight back to the kitchen area behind the island where there is an Acacia breakfast bar shelf and farmhouse basin sink. A bay window creates a formal dining nook, and oversized sliding glass doors on the back wall lead out to a large deck. The owner's bedroom has a customized walk-in closet and sliding glass doors out to a balcony. The generous lower level has cork floors, a bonus room and full bathroom, and leads out to the rear patio with honeycomb pavers and a spacious backyard with swing set.
