Spanish-Style Petworth Home with Numerous Porches

At some point, this row house in Petworth was renovated in a Spanish style, which resulted in a home full of open spaces, dark wooden floors and accents, and a number of porches. (In addition to the front porch, the rear of the house has both upper and lower porches.) The architectural details have dramatic contrasts and a rich feel, but the kitchen is light and open. The home comes with an in-law suite downstairs, complete with a kitchen and laundry room, and there is a one-car driveway.

  • Price: $638,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 2.5

  • Listing Agent: Jose Jeremias Lovos, Fairfax Realty

Contemporary with Angled Ceilings in the Maryland Suburbs

This Ashton, Md. home is huge: 4,374 square feet spread out over a two-acre lot. The three-story contemporary listing was built in 1977 by a fan of vaulted ceilings, and the kitchen, family room, master bedroom and master bathroom all have the feature that could be considered the home’s trademark. There are a few other cool aspects, like a spiral staircase leading down to the rec room, skylights, and a library lined with built-in shelves.

Capitol Hill Victorian With an Extra Large Bathroom

This Capitol Hill home has a somewhat unusual layout. While the main floor is traditional and appealing, with an entryway, living area and a renovated kitchen that opens onto a back patio, the second story, once home to three bedrooms, now has two bedrooms connected by a large bathroom and walk-in closet area. The bay windows in the living room and master bedroom are cozy, and the house looks well maintained. It is located just about a block north of the Potomac Avenue Metro.

  • Full Listing: 1360 E Street SE (map)
  • Price: $635,777
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1908
  • Listing Agent: Robert Bergman, RE/MAX Allegiance
