80s-Style Colonial in Silver Spring

We don’t see too many listings that were built in the 80s, so our interest was piqued by this Silver Spring colonial. Evidence of its age can be seen in the curved countertop, lack of moldings, and wood-paneled exterior. The backyard has a secret garden vibe, with a stone pathway and lush greenery on all sides. The bonus amenity of the listing? A hot tub near the deck.

Kalorama Co-op With a Window Seat

For those in the market for a two-bedroom, this Kalorama co-op will check a lot of boxes, but is a bit on the small side. The bedrooms are tight but charming. The living area is also relatively small, but has enough nooks and corners to make it interesting. (We particularly liked the cushioned window seat.) The monthly fees are on the high side, but they do include property taxes.

A Capitol Hill Loft With Short Walls

This unit is in Lovejoy Lofts, a former Capitol Hill school building that was converted into condos in 2003. Besides the historic building, exposed piping gives the unit a lofty feeling. Short walls that don’t quite reach the ceiling divide the main space into a living room, kitchen and master bedroom. A smaller second bedroom is tucked away off to the side.
