On one of DC’s most photographed blocks, this gorgeous two-bedroom two-and-one-half-bath row house was lovingly restored and updated by the architect owner. A perfect mix of traditional bones and contemporary details, with the contrast bringing out the best of both. The living and dining rooms have been configured as a flowing entertaining space making it live much larger than expected. The warm modern gourmet kitchen looks out to a spectacular perennial low-maintenance garden and terraces. A lovely office overlooks the garden from the second floor. The guest bedroom is inviting and has a large closet and built-in bookshelves. The primary bedroom, with modern en suite bath, features a stunning closet wall with grain-matched walnut doors. When sitting in the tranquil yard it will be hard to remember that all the dining, nightlife, and shopping of the 14th Street Corridor is just a block away. Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, Studio and Source Theaters, DC’s hottest restaurants, and chic shopping are all practically at your doorstep! While the Green/Yellow and Red metro lines are nearby, you’ll never have to worry about driving, as an off-street parking space conveys. Add to that a full unfinished basement, two-zone A/C, and Elfa Decor closet systems. An extraordinary house in an incomparable location like this doesn’t come along every day!.

    "Easy commute; mostly traveling in the opposite direction of traffic coming in from the suburbs in the morning. Excellent access to public transport. "
  • Trulia User
    "I commute by metro to MD. Sometimes take a bus to redline so that I don’t have to transfer. I appreciate the easy access to 395 to get to VA as well, and green and yellow lines to the airport, Gallery Place, Nats park, and the Wharf are great. "

  • Trulia User
    "I live by the giant, 8th and O NW, I regularly walk to and from work (dependent on weather), and I work at 14th and Penn NW, a little less than 2 miles, hailing a cab has gotten easier from here to work, but if weather is bad and I use lyft and it’s less than $10 per way, this area also is conveniently located between Shaw and convention center metro stations"

    "I've lived in this neighborhood for 4 years and it's great - there are grocery stores within walking distance, and lots of public transit if you need. I have a bus stop literally in front of my house. 11th St has a lot of great restaurants and bars, and U St and Shaw are just a quick walk down hill. Neighbors both old and new are friendly, if not on a first name basis. "
  • Trulia User
