Your Next Place


I realized, as I walked through this house, that they do actually still build castles, they just don't call them castles anymore.  In this case, they call it a "four level turreted Victorian," but as you and I can both see, it's basically a modern-day castle.  All it needs is a catapult and a moat and we could just dispense with the euphemisms.

Of course, as befitting a castle, this Petworth grand dame is massive, with four or five bedrooms spread over four levels. There's a beautiful wraparound front porch overlooking a very large yard in front, and there's even a white picket fence.  (Sounds cheesy, but I'll take it over the DC standard wrought-iron fence any day.)  Inside, it's big and bright and it goes on and on; here's a big, bright den, and here's a big, bright living room, and here's the big, bright kitchen, and the big, bright dining room, etc.  It seems to go on forever.  It's like your coworker's anecdotes about his weekend, only not, you know, terrible.

There's also a separate one-bedroom apartment on the first floor, to help defray your mortgage payments (or just the pay the entire payment, depending on how gullible of a tenant you can find).  And it's in Petworth, which, random claw hammer attacks notwithstanding, is maybe my new favorite neighborhood.  (I know that sounded sarcastic, but honest, it wasn't!)
