Suburban Comfort: Bethesda Colonial From the 1930’s

This three-story Bethesda home has a traditional vibe, with wainscoting, moldings, fireplaces, built-ins and a colonial facade. The master bedroom is huge, with an extra office area, but we liked the cool, window-ful addition on the side of the house that is currently being used as a family room and the back patio. The house is located in Westmorland Hills, just a couple blocks from the District line, offering suburban comforts fairly close to the city.

Bedrooms Everywhere in This Mount Pleasant Home

Set back from the street above the street action in Mount Pleasant is this six-bedroom semi-detached home. It has more light than your average row house and a beautiful front yard with old, giant trees. Like the listing above, the listing has wainscoting and period details, but looks more modern with dark hardwood floors and a black and white patterned tile floor in the kitchen (not to mention a living room pool table, which does not convey). The layout puts four bedrooms in the main house and two in the lower level unit, which is ready to rent.

  • Price: $990,000
  • Bedrooms: Six
