We’re now in that weird limbo of time past Thanksgiving but not yet Christmas, meaning we have a couple weeks of normal real estate before Santa and the New Year’s Baby come to town. Make sure your agent has a strategy to keep you safe while searching for your next home. To see the full Open House List, click here.

Open Sat. 1-3 p.m. — John Kirk
“In awe of this Queen Anne’s continued grace, thoughtfully renovated to fulfill the expectations of modern living while ensuring its 100-year-old character remained intact. Swoon at the hand-carved columns separating formal living room and dining room, interior transom windows, turreted shaped rooms, original fireplace, original parquet flooring upstaged only by the added inset borders. From the hand-carved five-paneled doors, to the period chandelier, even the original brass doorknobs, all speak of treasuring DC’s past glories. The kitchen has been completely renovated with french farm-style cream cabinetry, interior lit display shelving, stainless steel appliances, gas cooking, plus the prized butler’s pantry. Bathrooms are also renovated but in keeping with the period. The lower level belies its age with recessed lighting and drywall, a bonus room and laundry area — fully functional for a busy household. The exterior of the home is defined by the tooth and dental cornices and elegantly shaped roofline, sizable front porch and three-story turret on the rear. Incredible opportunity to live in the past and the present simultaneously, with all of the hard ‘This Old House’ updates already completed.”
