House of the Week: $1.85 million for a light-filled family home in Glen Park
The Place: A modern, five-bedroom home with exposed brick, wood panelling and a central open-tread staircase.
Bragging Rights: The inner courtyard brings natural light to the lower level and provides a private spot for contemplation.
Big Selling Point: Jewish families who keep kosher won’t need to renovate: the kitchen is already equipped with separate sinks and dishwashers for meat and dairy.
Possible Deal Breaker: While a skylit central staircase makes for a dramatic interior, the outside of the house is rather unremarkable.
