This unit is located at 516 A Street, Northeast. The listing says:

“Quintessential charm + sprawling space + ideal location = the perfect option for close-in Capitol Hill. Warm hardwoods, wonderful wainscoting, classic clawfoot tub, original millwork. Sensational chef’s kitchen w/ sep. pantry. Flexible formal entry area. All inclusive coop fees for super low cost of living. Prime position steps from Eastern Market or the Capitol. Heart of the Hill truly captured.”

This 1 bed/1 bath is going for $379,900 ($405 monthly fee.)

  • Clean Radiators

    Is the kitchen radiator supposed to look like it hasn’t been touched in 50 years? It looks so out of place and even the rest of the radiators seem normal. How did they do all that work and not scrape that rusty lead paint hazard and apply a decent coat of paint?

    Otherwise seems like a nicely restored space for those who like the quirks of these classic buildings.

  • anon

    I’m guessing there was a radiator cover that is not part of the sale. (Took it to use at the new place maybe?) Easy to remedy.

    But a first floor apartment with bars on all the windows (though better bars there than none) – I ain’t buying it.
