Classic Capitol Hill Residence with Development Land

April 2018

ATTRACTIVE TOWNHOUSE Great Bones Luxuriously freestanding and elegantly proportioned, the 1290 SF house is ideal for a couple, single person, or compact household. If you are an investor, it also makes a superlative rental property for income.

Trade the Yard for Money in your Pocket Thanks to the attached deck, the house enjoys an airy, indooroutdoor feeling. With parks and green spaces within easy reach, sale of the yard would not impact quality of life for you or your tenant.
