Your Next Place

I genuinely loved this newly-renovated U Street rowhome; as you can see in the pics, it's one of the most open, brightest rowhome spaces you'll ever see.  From the front door you can see all the way to the glass doors leading to the patio - and not just through a narrow hallway.  You could legitimately use this apartment as a single-lane bowling alley, though I think we can agree that that's a pretty stupid idea.  (Though that assessment could very well change after a few drinks.)

The living room area is flooded with light through the oversized bay window, and leads naturally to the dining area, which flows naturally to the eat-in kitchen furnished with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.  Upstairs, the master bedroom is also generously proportioned, and outfitted with a custom walk-in closet that, let's face it, is far too nice for your wardrobe of Adidas tearaway pants and threadbare kickball t-shirts.  The en-suite master bath features dual vanities ("Do not ever use my vanity, even if you're literally on fire" sign not included), a glass stand-up shower, and a soaking tub for when you've, I don't know, been sprayed by a skunk or something?  (I literally couldn't think of a single other reason why you'd need to soak.)

There's also a fantastic stone patio out back, where you can sit and look at all the people in the surrounding apartment buildings looking down at you in your yard and thinking, "I wish I lived in a place with a backyard patio.  I knew I shouldn't have majored in English."  And being just a block above U Street, this place is also very close to all the very best bars in DC, which of course is defined as "bars where I know the bartenders and drink for free."

Great view from the rear patio. NOT.
