Real Estate Fresh Finds: August 26

Real Estate Fresh Finds is a weekly selection of newly-listed properties in the District, brought to you by Real Living At Home.

Featured Property of the Week: 627 8th Street NE

“Welcome to this stunning, completely renovated from top to bottom, gorgeous home in the popular Capitol Hill/H Street Corridor. From the moment you step into this home, you will notice the modern finishes while keeping the integrity of this historic victorian alive. The sophisticated open-concept of the first level provides a large area for all types of gatherings and the Edwardian style fireplace will keep you warm in the cold winter nights. The chef’s kitchen is truly remarkable and is 100% new construction as it was renovated down to the bricks as well as the subfloor. It includes marble countertops, a commercial-grade gas stove, and a custom range hood cover.”

“The lower level was previously unfinished space but now has a brand new full bathroom and a kitchenette with red onyx countertops. The upper-level bathroom was also gut-renovated and now boasts Carrera marble floors and a custom-designed shower. So many details and finishes have been added to this home that you would need to visit in person to see them for yourself. And if that wasn’t enough, the walk score for this home is 94! Yes, you can walk to public transportation, Whole Foods, Union Market, gyms, Union Station and countless restaurants with little effort.  You definitely don’t want to miss out on this place!”

The Potomac Roasting Company is stocked with excellent coffee to meet almost any palate. But that’s not the only good news. We now offer free shipping for orders over $35.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality beans sourced from small farms in Latin America and Africa that are owned and operated by women. We will make sure that your coffee is roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

Our newest coffee comes from Mbozi, Tanzania. We secured a shipment just before this small batch of delicious beans sold out. In Swahili, Usawa means balance and Kahawa means coffee. The beans are grown on small farms that are part of a cooperative promoting gender equity and market access for women. This is a smooth and balanced coffee that is sure to please.

We also received coffee shipments that were delayed following the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. That includes the most recent harvest of La Morena coffee beans from Huehuetenango, Guatemala. We have plenty in stock, so that you can stock up! Rounding out our specialty coffee choices are fresh roasts from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia and Peru.
