Your Next Place




Here we have a rock-solid classic old rowhouse that's been extensively renovated inside.  It's like a mint-condition '57 Chevy that when you start it up, you realize can also fly and shoot lasers from the headlights.

The living room, right off, is sleek and modern, with recessed lighting and a simple, open layout. The openish staircase leads up and down to the four bedrooms (the basement one has its own entrance too), all of which are roomy and very bright.

The kitchen is clearly the crown jewel of the house, and very large, with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops and even a little mounted television, so you can get super absorbed in "Judge Judy" while your three-cheese macaroni silently carbonizes in the oven.

The kitchen opens out, via twin glass doors, onto a fine wooden deck that overlooks a flagstone patio and a wide grassy yard.  Behind that is a sizable detached garage, for parking cars in, or using for band practice when your midlife crisis hits.  (Just please remember to lock the doors.  I'm still traumatized from walking in on my dad and his coworkers in the garage, years ago, as they were covering a Sublime song.)  It's also within walking distance to Eastern Market, and H Street, which is my new favorite nightlife neighborhood, if only because I know my ex is too lazy to ride her bike all the way out there.

Why do you keep posting houses that have been sold or are pending. Lazy not to check

They are not under contract when we post the article, sometimes they go under contract around the same time but we don't take them down once we post them.

Stripped of any character...sad.

Ken,
that's odd. This article was posted on May 5, yet the property went under contract on March 27, and actually settled on April 26. How is it that this was not under contract when you posted the article?

Thank you for the fantastic article. The place else could anyone get that kind of info in such a perfect means of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am at the search for such information.
