Traditional Hidden in Takoma Park 

Just past the DC border in Takoma Park, this Craftsman bungalow is on a tucked away street a short walk from the neighborhood's main drag. The front door is off a wide wooden porch and opens into a foyer and a living room with a fireplace. Next is the dining room and a U-shaped kitchen with a farmhouse sink and abundant floor and counter space, including a breakfast bar. The kitchen overlooks the family room area; the staircase is adjacent and has built-in shelving beneath. Trees loom over the fenced-in backyard, which has three tiers with equal parts patio, landscaping and green space. The lower level is a full in-law suite.

Mid-Century Modern Masked as Multi-Family

One of the Tiffey Townhomes that characterize two blocks in 16th Street Heights has hit the market, a mid-century modern semi-detached house that almost reads as a multi-family building from the street. Abstract iron gates create a portico at the home's entrance that leads onto a slate pool deck. A partial wall creates a seating area in the master bedroom, enjoying a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows. The sunken living room also has a stone fireplace and French doors leading out to a covered patio facing Rock Creek Park. The adjacent dining room, with a mezzanine-like landing above, has a double-height ceiling with windows stretching up the majority of the wall. A skylit breakfast room has a brick accent wall and also has access to the outdoor space.

Kingman Park Style in Glover Park

This Glover Park home has an interior aesthetic more reminiscent of rowhouses in denser DC neighborhoods on the east side of the city. The front porch has open sightlines along the row of neighbors, and inside, the house has original pine flooring and hardwood trim and baseboards throughout. A red brick fireplace sits in the living room at the front of the house, which flows directly into the kitchen and dining room. A sunroom-style den sits straight ahead, with windows framing the door from the kitchen. The equally-sized third and fourth bedrooms both lead to a shared sunroom, and the finished basement has a separate laundry room. The backyard leads to a detached garage.
