Abutting the Park in Glover Park

This Glover Park rowhouse enjoys a full-sized porch at the front door and then the Whitehaven Parkway at the back of the property. The updated interior has open circulation without the open concept layout. A pointed archway leads to the dichromatic kitchen/dining room beyond the living room, where the former has a breakfast bar opposite an integrated cooktop beneath a hood with open shelving on either side. The main level ends in a sunroom-like den with access to the rear deck and clerestory windows on opposite walls. The second bedroom has an alcove on one side with space for a crib or a desk. The third bedroom is on the lower level, which also has a kitchenette. A bonus for this neighborhood, the house has a parking  pad with room for up to three vehicles.

Mid-Century Modern in Chevy Chase

Just off East West Highway in Chevy Chase, this nearly 3,000 square-foot mid-century modern house reads as a ranch from its spacious front lawn. The living room has two skylights, a fireplace and a wall of windows. The bright formal dining room leads to the U-shaped, skylit kitchen with stacked double ovens. The main level also has a skylit, screened-in deck with a pitched ceiling and an exposed brick wall. The owner's bedroom has a partially pitched ceiling with an array of stacked windows on the far wall, as well as a bedroom-sized walk-in closet with built-ins. The lower level has a rec room with five near floor-to-ceiling windows and a brick panel fireplace, as well as the fourth bedroom, laundry room and separate access to a bi-level deck and backyard.

Circular Fireplaces in Logan Circle Rowhouse

Whether or not this Logan Circle rowhouse was built in 1985, its eye-catching interior certainly bucks many of the architectural details expected of the neighborhood. Most of the flooring throughout the house is parquet hardwoods, and the living room at the front of the house enjoys a fireplace with a circular frame. The dining room has an exposed brick accent wall, and another lines the stairwell up to the skylit landing. The second bedroom houses a bay window and a wall with a chimney column flanked by shelving. The house also has a balcony and a deep rear yard with a parking pad.
