Your Next Place



This Capitol Hill Victorian home oozes more class and sophistication than a sack of Kate Middletons.  From the moment you walk in the double door entry, you know you're in an exceptional house.

The fabulous living room features an antique fireplace and twin chandeliers, as well as discreet recessed lighting and gleaming hardwood floors.  The dining room is perfect for formal entertaining - and the kitchen!  God, the kitchen.  This might be the biggest kitchen I've ever seen; for sure it has the most counter space.  The owner told me that a small single-engine plane once made an emergency landing on this counter, that's how long it is.  (Not really.)  But seriously, no matter how many dishes you scatter around, no matter how many unopened bills you heedlessly toss onto it, no matter how many styrafoam takeout containers you neglect to throw away, you will never ever use up all the counter space.  That's my promise to you.  My meaningless, non-legally-binding promise.



Upstairs, the master bedroom is super bright and super big, and the master bath features a separate freestanding shower, and a jacuzzi tub.  So you can sit OR stand while embarrassing yourself with your singing.  Best of all, the lower level is a two-bedroom apartment that you can rent out to defray the cost of your mortgage, or that you can move your secret lover into and pretend is a legitimate tenant.  It's a horrible idea, sure, but what a story to tell at the bar!

"For only $1.4 million, you're only blocks from Section 8 housing and a major highway where you're sure to enjoy all the culture the locals can provide!"

Are people insane?

I thought this home went under contract over a month ago.
