    I want more pictures. I like it, it’s got nice details and the walls can easily be painted. I would totally keep the pink stuff in that bathroom!

  • Meh. I don’t understand this neighborhood. It’s nice, but it’s also kind of far from anything. Sure, everything is a quick drive away, but there is nothing to walk to, like, at all.

    Super love the washed brick on the outside, a huge weakness for me. Also the millwork is fabulous, and that reading room kicks ass. Some folks will probably comment that the kitchen is “dated”, but at least it’s not offensively so.

  • Not a fan of that kitchen layout at all. Other than that it looks nice. Some updates to paint and flooring would be helpful. I wonder what the backyard is like.

  • Is there a way to make the photos bigger? PoP used to link to the big photo galleries, and I understand he wants to keep the traffic on his site, but the photos in his little real estate module are so small!

    • Well.. my comment was removed.

      If you want to see larger images, go to zillow or trulia, and they have them.

      • Oops… my comment is still awaiting moderation. I forgot links do that.

        If it gets a double post, sorry.

  • Surprisingly boring inside.

  • ah

    Must be a good deal . . . already under contract.

  • The reading room is made smaller in appearance by all the wood. The kitchen isn’t so much dated as goofy, like that glass topped thing that probably isn’t usable. the whole place seems a little to formal, which may appeal to the demographic but makes it seem unlivable. i like the brick outside and the stonework on the sidewalk–there seemed to be a brief period before/after WWII where that sort of thing was popular and its worn well.

      I actually like the coziness of it thanks to the wood, it feels like an intimate place I would want to sit down with a book in front of the fire and be surrounded by great literature.

    I never knew there was a neighborhood in DC named Berkley.

  • Wouldn’t change a thing. Just don’t have $2.2 mil floating around.
