Your Next Place


By Franklin Schneider

This Federal-style brick townhome is ideally situated in Southwest, with views of the Potomac River and the Jefferson Memorial, and just a hop, skip and a jump from the Mall, the Capitol, the waterfront, and many other things I've never seen despite living in DC for five years.

Inside, the house is roomy and bright, with high ceilings and tons of windows. I always know if an open house is going well when I see people sauntering from room to room, nodding their heads while looking around, and it seemed like everyone at this place was doing that.

And really, what's not to like? There's a large chef's eat-in kitchen (with the requisite granite countertops), a wide, elevated entertaining deck, a truly masterful master bathroom (the jacuzzi-style tub was so deep that it comes with a stool for stepping in and out, which I think speaks for itself), and some truly massive bedrooms. Too often, it seems like houses will go all out with the dramatic living room, kitchen, etc., but then the bedrooms will be cramped little cubbyholes. This never made sense to me, since most of the people I know who live with other people, be it roommates or family or whatever, spend most of their time in their bedroom. (If you just read that and were like, "no way, I spend most of my time camped out in the living room!!" then I hate to tell you this, but you're the one we're all avoiding.) (Hi, Dad.)

too bad those nice views will be blocked soon by a row of 13 story buildings on the waterfront.
