    Slant of roof looks weird; not sure if it is photo or roof.
    .
    Otherwise, this is f*cking beautiful, and I have always loved these blocks between 14th & 16th. I would buy this without a second thought if I could afford it!

  • Is that a wine rack on the bathroom wall?

  • Deal zoned. Interesting.

    • Not anymore. I think existing kids are grandfathered, but new kids got chopped out along with Crestwood in the re-districting.

      • I believe that there was a seven year delay; however, whether that is for kids who are already of age, or kids who were in the neighborhood before then, I don’t know.

  • Hm. I think if I’m going to live close enough to my neighbors that I can smell what they’re cooking, I’d want the insulation benefit of a rowhouse.
    Otherwise, it’s very nice for the most part.

    • Maybe, but what you lose in insulation you gain in not being structurally supported by buildings you have no control over. They could still dig out your foundation, but there are less ways your neighbors can screw you through neglect.

      I’m not a huge fan of the kitchen (between the cabinets, counters, and floor, and paint, I am gonna guess the current owner likes yellow. Unfortunately only one of those is easy to fix). But otherwise I like it, particularly the porch. Street view shows a flowering tree in the next door neighbor’s lawn and a gorgeous large tree (I think a Scarlet Oak looks like) out front.

    • Ah, but so much more light with windows on the side.

  • What an ugly facade, but at least it’s big?

    • Disagree. I like the brick, and the shingling on the awnings is unique. The exterior is my favorite part of this house.

    • It’s standard brick–looks a little distorted in this photo, but if you click through to the listing, it looks like regular DC brown/yellow brick.

  • Good looking house in a great neighborhood! I don’t think it’ll go at $970K, but not too far off. Maybe $930-950k after a few weeks.

  • This is pretty much exactly what I would love, with a few minor cosmetic changes. Unfortunately there’s no way I can afford it 🙁
