A Deceptively Spacious 864 Square Feet

A short walk from the Potomac Avenue Metro station, this slim, two-story Federal rowhouse sits just one step up from the walkway at the end of a deep, fenced-in front yard. The house opens into a bright living area that looks straight through to the dining area and kitchen beyond, where cabinetry lines the walls on either side of the back door. The bi-level rear yard steps up from an at-grade patio to a small grassy area with shed that can potentially be converted into a parking pad. Two bedrooms sit upstairs with the laundry and the full bath, which has a skylight and jetted tub.

A Detached House with an Enviable Deck in Anacostia

Over in historic Anacostia between Good Hope Road and the Frederick Douglass House, this detached three-bedroom home also offers more space than meets the eye. Past the front porch, the house enters into a small foyer, leading to the hallway and stairs on one side and the main living areas along the other. Deep dining and living rooms give way to the eat-in kitchen with an industrial-style island, subway-tile backsplash, a wall of cabinets and a double farmhouse sink. The bedrooms share the full bath upstairs. The fenced-in backyard has plenty of green space framed by a garden on two sides and a wooden deck, running the length of the yard with built-in bench seating and an attached shed.
