It seems like every Tuesday, there is one real stand out on our brokers' tour. This week's list included some really amazing homes, but 1510 26th Street took first place.
As I looked over the list to decide what to go see, this home peaked my interest because most of the houses on that block are really tiny - like 500 total square feet with maybe one bedroom that'll hold a twin bed. What, I asked myself, could be there worth even close to the $2,150,000 asking price of this home?
I got my answer as soon as I walked through the door.
The brick flat-face home is a stand alone, about eight times larger than the neighbors. Built in about 1900, it's been recently renovated to a very high standard.
When listing agent, Fred Bates of DC Real Estate, greeted me at the front door, I walked in. And my heart skipped a few beats! This house is a hottie! It's a shameless flirt!
It has a small and highly functional kitchen with state of the art everything. I could imagine my friends gathering to play chamber music in the huge living room. I could hear the raucous political arguments we'd have sitting at the dining table overlooking the gorgeous rear garden, where Willie the Labradoodle could cavort and drink water from the lovely coy pond. And I could imagine myself standing on the Juliet balcony off the master bedroom being serenaded by my sweetie, strumming his lute from below.
This place has everything except parking, although in this part of Georgetown it isn't all that tight. And I could imagine my home office set up off the kitchen, looking out the window at the charming street scene.
The basics? It has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, and a 3,548 square foot lot (huge for Georgetown). It's a half block to Rock Creek Park and a five minute walk to the Dupont Metro, all kinds of restaurants and markets.
