SETTING: This semidetached Tudor rowhouse is in Cathedral Heights, a neighborhood between the Washington National Cathedral and the nearly 200 wooded acres of Glover Archbold Park, about three miles from downtown. The neighborhood is known for its single-family Tudor and Edwardian houses, with some apartments and condos along Wisconsin Avenue. A trail through the park, which is part of the larger Rock Creek Park, extends two miles south to Georgetown University and the Potomac River. The nearest Metro stop is a mile and a half away.
周边环境：这座都铎风格的半独立式联排住宅位于大教堂高地(Cathedral Heights)。大教堂高地是一片社区，位于华盛顿国家大教堂(Washington National Cathedral)和格洛弗·阿奇博尔德公园(Glover Archbold Park) 近200英亩（约合91公顷）的林地之间，距市中心约3英里（约合5公里）。该社区的闻名之处在于建有都铎风格和爱德华风格的单户式住宅，此外，威斯康星大道(Wisconsin Avenue)旁边建有一些单元式住宅和共管公寓。格洛弗·阿奇博尔德公园是岩溪公园(Rock Creek Park)的一部分，在这里，一条穿园而过的步道向南延伸两英里（约合3公里）至乔治敦大学(Georgetown University)和波托马克河(Potomac River)。最近的地铁站在1.5英里（约合2公里）以外。
INDOORS: The four-story house was built in the late 1920s and updated within the last 10 years, retaining most of its original architectural detail. An arched door opens to a side hall, with the living room to the right, followed by the dining room and the kitchen. The living room has a broad bay window facing the street, as well as a gas fireplace with the original plaster mantel and ornate surround. The hardwood flooring throughout is original, as is the raised wall molding in the living room and the decorative door frames.
French doors open from the living room into the dining room, which has a coffered ceiling. A second set of French doors opens to an informal dining area in the kitchen, where sliding glass doors open to a deck, creating a sunny corridor from the front of the house to the back. Stainless-steel kitchen appliances, including a Garland range and oven, were installed during renovations; countertops are granite.
Three bedrooms, including the master suite, are on the second floor, as is an office. Most have transoms; one has a wall of built-in cabinetry and is used as a den. The attic is finished, with a bedroom and a half-bathroom.
The fifth bedroom is part of a suite on the lower level, which follows the grade of the land. Also downstairs are two storage rooms and a family room with a corner fireplace and a wall of glass that opens to the back patio.
OUTDOOR SPACE: A side yard and a back patio, as well as two off-street parking spaces.
TAXES: $7,860 a year

INDOORS: The two-story house, which takes its shape from a traditional American farmhouse, was built in 2000. The exterior is primarily stucco and concrete, with limestone inserts flanking the front door, and walls of glass.
A bright two-story foyer with clerestory windows steps down into a living room with a pitched ceiling and walls of windows rising 20 feet to the lowest point in the pitch. A two-inch band of glass runs vertically through the floor-to-ceiling limestone chimney, designed to catch and focus sunset light; sliding glass doors open to the back deck. Floors in this part of the house are recycled bamboo; shelving is a light-colored oak.
A partial wall separates the living room from the kitchen, whose oak cabinetry echoes the living room’s shelving, all made by C.S. Humphrey & Company in Kansas City. Stainless-steel appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a Gaggenau range, as well as a built-in Miele espresso maker. The curving breakfast bar that runs along the kitchen island is topped by a copper sheet finished by an auto body shop. The dining room has a glass-brick wall. Between the kitchen and dining area, there’s a wet bar.
一堵半墙将客厅与厨房分割开来，厨房的橡木橱柜与客厅的搁架遥相呼应，它们都由堪萨斯城C.S. Humphrey & Company公司制造。不锈钢器具包括Sub-Zero的冰箱、嘉格纳(Gaggenau)炉灶，以及嵌入式美诺(Miele)咖啡机。弧线形早餐吧台沿着厨房岛台延伸，其顶端覆盖着一块铜制薄板，此薄板加工于一家汽车车身车间。餐厅采用玻璃砖墙。厨房和用餐区之间有一张吧台。
The entry-level master bedroom is part of a suite with a private balcony overlooking the woods. It has three large closets, one walk-in. The spacious master bathroom measures nearly 200 square feet, anchored by a step-up tub in the middle of the room; it can also handle mud baths. There are double sinks and cabinets running along opposing walls. The colorful glass tiles here and in the other bathrooms are from Ann Sacks.

WHAT: A house with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, with a one-bedroom guest apartment
HOW MUCH: $1,300,000
SIZE: 6,134 square feet
PRICE PER SQUARE FOOT: $212
SETTING: Stowe is a ski town in northern Vermont, just east of the Green Mountains. This house is in a local historic district near the center of town, about two blocks from restaurants and shops and seven miles from the slopes, which are surrounded by state forest and trails. The listing agent notes that while mountain and resort properties have long been popular in the area, buyers have more recently started to modernize and preserve older houses in the town’s historic core, like this one, which dates to 1850. A town walking path winds through a lightly wooded area just past the lawn.
INDOORS: The house has two wings, the street-side 19th-century section, and a newer addition behind that. These are bridged by a heated three-car garage. Both have full kitchens and living rooms, with broad mountain views throughout.
The older wing retains some of its original architectural detail, including exposed ceiling beams and some wide-board pine floors. The living and dining areas are part of a bright open-plan space with windows on three sides and a brick fireplace in the living area. Many of the windowpanes are the original wavy glass. Kitchen updates include granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and custom cabinets. The older wing has three bedrooms.
Common areas in the newer wing are on an open floor plan with brick floors and a large wood-burning fireplace. The fireplace has a brick surround and a simple wood mantel with some decorative paneling.
French doors built into a wall of glass open to a stone patio, while a bay window in a dining nook takes advantage of mountain views. An island separates the living and dining areas from the kitchen, which has granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, as well as wood cabinets in the same blue-gray as the mantel in the living area.
The newer wing has two bedrooms upstairs, including a large suite with a fireplace and a pitched beamed ceiling, as well as a small sitting area. A hallway leads into a bright family room over the garage with windows on opposing walls. The lower-level apartment is an open-plan space with a kitchen, a wood stove and glass doors opening up to a patio.
OUTDOOR SPACE: The house is on 0.57 acre, with stone walls and a lawn edged by trees.
