This Victorian rowhouse just off the H Street Corridor offers much more interior space than meets the eye from the exterior. An extra-wide archway punctuates the expansive living room, which has a reading nook created by a bay window adjacent to a built-in shelving-and-cabinet unit. Across from the staircase and its exposed brick wall, a white fireplace has a built-in mirror and is next to an office nook with window. The dining room has a pair of oversized windows on its curved wall, and the kitchen has a pressed tin tray ceiling and a farmhouse sink beneath a window. The owner's bedroom also enjoys the bay window nook and mirrored sliding closet doors, while another bedroom also has a curved wall. The lower level is suited for an in-law suite, with bedroom, full bath and kitchen. The house also has a wooden rear deck above a red brick patio and attached garage door-accessible two-car parking pad.
