Cooler Than Your Average Townhouse
Retro-industrial accents and modern furnishings give this end unit the feeling of an urban loft.
When the pandemic sent Arlington into quarantine, Agrillo set up shop in the home office, a teal-blue space outfitted with a custom wall unit by Carbon Industrial. By then, Peischler, a media/event planner and consultant, was newly pregnant. “I worked out of the guest bedroom—with my feet up!” she says. The girls, now in high school at Yorktown, claimed spots for their laptops in the loft and kitchen.
In July of 2020, the couple finished up the last piece of the design puzzle—a first-floor bathroom, which Miller cleverly outfitted with a yellow Kast concrete sink and gray dry-erase wall paint (intended to encourage graffiti).
And then they moved. In August, the whole crew decamped to a larger home with a yard near Clarendon, just in time for the birth of a baby girl, Skylar.
For all its coolness, the townhome—which they are now renting out—was just a little too snug for a party of five, plus two dogs.
They’re leasing their current digs, Agrillo says, and will figure out their next move once the older girls are in college. Arlington is still on the table, but so are parts of D.C. “We definitely love walkability and convenience,” he says. “And we do love urban.”
Will they end up renovating the next place they buy? “Probably,” Agrillo says. “When the time comes.”
