An Open Floor Plan Near the Petworth-Brightwood Border

Like many homes in Petworth and Brightwood, this rowhouse was renovated in an open manner, with a living room that flows into the kitchen and dining area. Given the property’s narrow footprint, the openness does help. Upstairs, the master bedroom sits at the back of the house where there are an abundant number of windows; the other two bedrooms are on the small side. The finished basement has a bedroom and bathroom, so it could work as an in-law suite.

  • Price: $549,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1926

Suburban Colonial on a Cul-De-Sac in Olney

For buyers in the market for a more suburban home, we give you a four-bedroom colonial in Olney. Located on a cul-de-sac and backing up to the woods, the location is private and seems like a safe place for kids to run around. Some buyers might want to update the kitchen and bathrooms, but for style purposes rather than condition as the home seems well-maintained. Perhaps the best part of this listing is the grassy backyard and the sizable deck.
