    I want to like it, but I’m afraid I don’t. Never mind I couldn’t afford, but there are too many things I’d need to change about it.

    Seems to have decent bones, but that’s a lot of money for the privilege of updating almost everything and living on a busy, dangerous street.

    This will appeal to someone who like the more modern aesthetic of where there aren’t as many of those in DC.

    A house with that kind of distinctive architecture, you need to go all in on. There is no fudging that in ways that don’t look odd. The front door is colonial which just look wrong with what is more mid-century. Then there is the kitchen. The current occupants/owners seem be doing better with the decor but money will have to be spent to do that place up right but I don’t know that it will deter someone but I don’t know that neighborhood well.

    I could happily live here, love the sunken living room.

  • Now this is an open floor plan that I dig, almost mid-century modern but not quite. Not a fan of many of the finishes, but I could live with them until it was reasonable to replace them. The only real knock for me is how far north it is.

    Won’t appeal to a mid-mod purist, given the odd kitchen and some of the detail, but not every fan is an obssessive. Not a neighborhood-y location, being on a main street but close to the Park, DTSS and not too much hassle to reach the Beltway.

    oh no, did they change the grasscloth wall covering from a vertical to a horizontal when moving from living to dining room? I couldn’t live with that

  • anon

    they couldn’t have picked worse kitchen cabinet doors for the house but a pretty neat house overall.

    I love that sun-sitting room!! Holy cow, that alone would seal the deal for me – if I had that kind of money!
