Home of the Week: Affordable home offers prime location in Old Town

Home of the Week: Affordable home offers prime location in Old Town

Located in the heart of Old Town’s southeast quadrant, this lovely home provides rarely seen affordability and value (with no HOA or condo fees). Not only does the house offer the three mandates for real estate purchases — location, location and location — it also comes with the amenities of much larger and more expensive homes.

During the summer, the owners completely demolished and rebuilt the upstairs full bath from the studs. In December, they installed new wood-frame, double-pane windows, which are fully approved by the board of architectural review.

The large eat-in kitchen contains granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a wine fridge.  The wall-mounted, flat-screen television makes the cozy living room even cozier and more complete. The main level also sports a half bath (now that’s rare).

Each bedroom features a large closet and ceiling fan. And outdoors, there is a fully fenced backyard perfect for grilling, entertaining and playing with pets.

All of this comes with a walk score of 91. The Potomac River, multiple grocery stores, restaurants, cafes and shops are just blocks away. Even better, a car trip to D.C. is only four stoplights away.
