The flier says:

“This great home is located minutes to the Metro and buses, and is adjacent to the entrance of picturesque Rock Creek Park. The open floorplan ensures gracious entertaining w/ gleaming hardwood floors, and features a beautifully executed new kitchen with granite counters and S/S appliances. As an added bonus, the home has a sunroom, a large basement with full bath, and 2 parking spaces.”

More info found here and a virtual tour found here.

This is the home that is located across the street from today’s house of the day. The virtual tour looks pretty fantastic but the reader cautions that the some of the rooms are actual quite small. While the listing says it is located in Columbia Heights it actually falls in that border area between Crestwood and Petworth. It’s been on the market 205 days. Originally it was going for $515,000 but is now on the market for $459,900. Does that sound reasonable?
