Located on a charming cobblestone street, this O Street Federal townhouse has a lot to like. The first floor is a separate, very nice apartment with tons of windows and long sightlines, which I didn't realize at first. I thought the apartment was the entire property, and I was still like, “great, where do I sign?” (Any references to “signing” were only for entertainment purposes; the last time I tried to rent a place, the landlord checked my credit and said my score “literally couldn't be any worse.” I'm quite sure it's gotten worse since then.)
So imagine my surprise when I wandered upstairs and found the rest of the house, which was even finer. A spectacular living room (with fireplace), a huge kitchen (with skylight), a separate dining room (also with fireplace) and a sunfilled breakfast room (with yet another fireplace!). Upstairs, each of the bedrooms had their own distinctive personalities (something that's rarer and rarer); one had a ridiculous amount of closet space, another had tons of built-in shelving, some were square, some were oblong, et cetera. Out back is a very nice flagstone garden, perfect for grilling or lounging or just sitting around and fretting about where to park your growing fleet of cars. What? (Transition alert!)
Cars, you say? How many? Two? Three? More than three? Ten? That's cool, no one's judging you. (Yes we are.) But this could definitely be the house for you – because it comes with a parking garage. That's right, your very own parking garage. Not only that, but the parking garage is separately deeded, which can come in real handy for a lot of reasons (tax evasion). Kidding!
