The flier says:

“Beautiful 1912 “extra-width, ” four-level, 4/5 bedroom and two bath rowhouse on the quiet side of Park Road (as it winds down into Rock Creek Park). An inviting front porch, plus warm, original wood floors, mouldings, trim, decorative fireplaces, and staircases combine perfectly with an updated stainless kitchen, two-zone HVAC, a multi-level deck, and off-street parking.”

More info found here and a virtual tour found here.

So basically I find these homes by walking around town and if they have a for sale sign in front, I take a photo. Sadly/happily, some are already under contract by the time I get to posting them. But I think a few are still worth looking at. This one in particular has some of the greatest wood details I’ve seen in a while. The floors, fireplace and trims are super fresh. There is also a pretty interesting back yard. And it’s Friday – so enjoy! Asking price was $849,000 for this 5 bed/2 bath. How much value do you think the “extra-width” adds?
