Bethesda Contemporary in a Cooperative Community

This four-bedroom home is in Bannockburn, a cooperative community that was developed in Bethesda in the 1940’s. The community has grown over the decades and now has a nursery school, elementary school, community center, pool and plenty of community spirit. This home is set on half an acre of woodsy land, so it feels pretty private despite the communal nature of the development. The interior is fairly plain but has plenty of windows that enhance the livability.

Multilevel Colonial in Alexandria

This Alexandria Colonial has a unusual layout, with the living areas divided amongst five stories. The front door opens up to the main level with a small formal living room. A staircase leads up to a family room, kitchen and dining room. The next level up has two bedrooms, and the uppermost level has a master suite. On the ground floor is a nice private patio. The home was built in 1980 and has a few cool features, like exposed beams in the family room and a sloped ceiling in the master suite.

Recently Renovated Capitol Hill Rowhouse

This home has many of the hallmarks of a recent renovation: an open floor plan, white painted brick, a skylight, and a new deck. The deck has a narrow sliver wrapping around the side of the home, and the french doors opening up from the kitchen are a nice touch. With less than 1,500-square feet, the home is narrow and one of the bedrooms is quite small; it is currently set up as an office. The three-bedroom home is on 11th Street SE, about equidistant from the Eastern Market and Potomac Ave Metro stations.
