Mid-Century Modern in Fairfax County
Over in Fairfax County, this mid-century modern home functions like a rancher with a glazed double-height addition. The addition has a concave vaulted ceiling that creates a sunroom-like family room with a stone panel containing the fireplace and recessed firewood storage. The open living/dining room is also surrounded by walls of glass and the kitchen has an island with integrated gas cooktop beneath a stainless steel hood, along with frosted glass cabinetry and white granite and stainless steel countertops. All three bedrooms have pairs of floor-to-ceiling windows, while the main bedroom contains clerestory windows and built-in shelving alongside the closets. The house also enjoys a side patio, detached shed, and a spacious yard with mature trees.

A Custom Split-Level in Annapolis
This split-level three-bedroom in Annapolis sits among the trees and has a double-height great room that sits beneath a vaulted ceiling. A huge double-sided stone column fireplace separates the family room and its single-story windows from the adjacent dining room with its L-shaped array of single-story windows and the sunken living room with a built-in U-shaped couch. The kitchen has an integrated electric cooktop island beneath a wood-clad exhaust hood and a series of skylights above windows and a green-tiled backsplash. One stair landing serves as a loft-like game room with a fireplace flanked with built-in shelving; another landing nook serves as a library surrounded by two rows of built-in shelving. The lower level has a rec room and two bedrooms with near floor-to-ceiling windows which share a bathroom.

A More Affordable Option in 16th Street Heights
This may be one of the few DC-area What X Buys articles where the option in DC proper is more affordable than those in far-flung suburbs. This 16th Street Heights farmhouse has a set of stairs between staggered front gardens leading to the generous front porch. A sunroom sits to the left of the entry foyer, while the formal dining room is to the right. The living room has a brick fireplace, double exposure and coffered ceilings. The kitchen is a separate room with ample granite counter space and cabinetry. The two bedrooms on the second level also have double exposure, while the uppermost floor has two bedrooms beneath cove and vaulted ceilings. There is also an unfinished basement and a detached garage in the backyard.
