Versatile layout:1br/den/frml dining rm or 2brs/frml living rm. No location is better-steps from Capitol/LOC/Supreme Ct/Congress/Stanton Prk/Eastern Mkt/2 metros! Must see!”

“I can’t get over looking at the listing for this house. Great location. Great stained glass and other original detailing. And on the tiniest postage stamp of a lot I’ve ever seen. The listing claims a 288 square foot lot; it also claims that the four-story house is 1500 square feet, so obviously one of those numbers is incorrect, but still: tiny. I’m curious whether other PoP readers think the location and curb appeal are worth having a bedroom three floors up from the laundry closet and rooms where you can touch both walls.”

This is a wild one! I’ve def. featured the stained glass before so I was psyched to get a peek inside. I freaking love it. So it’s no surprise that it is under contract already. What do you guys think? Would it be a pain going up and down the stairs? Was this 2 bed/2.5 bath a good deal for $485,500? Do you think it went for more?
