1960s Split Level in Silver Spring

With a split level design, wallpaper in the bathroom and a rec room and office completely plastered in wood paneling, this home looks like a time capsule from an earlier era of suburbanism. That said, the current owner has been making updates, like installing a new HVAC system and remodeling the kitchen. The house is located in a grassy neighborhood in Kemp Mill, an area about 4 miles from downtown Silver Spring.

Kalorama Condo Renovated in a Contemporary Style

This one-bedroom condo is located at Le Bourget, a historic condo building named after a neighborhood in the suburbs of Paris. The building went up in 1927, but this one-bedroom listing was recently renovated in a contemporary style. The kitchen is outfitted with a breakfast bar and shiny appliances and is now open to the living room, and the floors and bathroom also look updated. We particularly liked the private balcony and walk-in closet with built-in shelves.

  • Price: $399,000
  • Bedrooms: One

H Street Condo in the Logan School

In 1984, the Logan School building on G Street NE was chopped up into 24 condos. Because of the slightly unusual shape, some units have rounded walls or angled ceilings. This unit is one; the top floor one-bedroom has several angled ceilings with skylights built into them, creating bright sitting areas throughout the living room. Like the Kalorama condo, this unit has a particularly attractive small balcony.

  • Full Listing: 301 G Street NE #35 (map)
  • Price: $392,750
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 730
  • HOA fees: $381/month
  • Listing Agent: H. Ryall Smith, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
