  • Always wondered about these places. No mention of square footage–the rooms seem smallish, esp. the kitchen. No mention of W/D and I didn’t see a dishwasher. No mention of parking either. Price is competitive with 2bdr condos in some of the better buildings in Adams Morgan.

    • Pictures show both a W/D and a good-size parking pad in the back. Looks like top floor is 2br/1bath, living/dining/kitchen on second level, and 1br/bath on first floor. In a modern house they would make the second floor half open kitchen.

  • I used to live on that row and really loved it. Its an amazing location, the homes are really cute, and the neighbors are awesome. The layout is as follows: you enter from the front and you enter the basement (or bedroom #3) and there is a full bath. The second floor is the living room and kitchen. The third floor is two bedrooms and a full bath. There are two parking spots out back via an alley way from hobart street.

  • Good deal!

  • My friend owns the house next to this and I lived in the basement for a while. Its an awesome row with good people. Only a couple group homes mixed in. Very unique little homes built by Able (who always did a similar looking row on Arkansas -east of 16th)

  • It’s a nice neighborhood (I live around the corner in Mt. Pleasant, and we really do hear the lions roar) and looks like a nice house, but check out that tiny kitchen with a compact range pushed up against the wall (and it would be difficult to replace it with a full-sized one).
