Mid-Century Modern Forest Hills Home Built By LBJ’s Press Secretary

This four-bedroom home in Forest Hills has a living room with a wall of windows that look right into the woods of Rock Creek Park. Built in the mid-century modern style in 1967 by President Lyndon Johnson’s press secretary, the treehouse-feel of the house can also be seen in the property’s sloped ceilings, exposed beams and the fact that almost every room has a window in it.

  • Full Listing: 2711 Jenifer Street NW (map)
  • Price: $1.15 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1967
  • Listing Agent: Kimberly Cestari, W.C. & A.N. Miller Realtors

1,900 Square-Foot Loft Style Unit in Dupont Circle

Located in a former embassy on 18th Street that was converted to residences five years ago, this third-floor unit spreads out over 1,887 interior square feet. The living, dining and kitchen spaces are all very open, and the 13-foot ceilings and the fact that the unit has natural light coming in from three sides, makes it seem larger than the quoted square footage. The listing price, while lofty, also includes a crucial amenity for this neighborhood — a garage parking space.

  • Full Listing: 1701 18th Street NW, #302 (map)
  • Price: $1.25 million
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,887
  • Listing Agent: Jonathan Addison, Sovereign International Realty Group

Arlington Four-Bedroom Home With Two-Story Wall of Windows

The most striking thing about this four-bedroom home in Arlington is the two-story wall of Pella windows (see above) that lead out to a large deck and backyard. The 4,900 square-foot listing also has some very large rooms, and not one, but two master bedrooms. The lower level is a fully finished rec room that the current owners have outfitted with the requisite pool table and large screen TV.
