A Rooftop For Projecting Movies in Truxton Circle

This turn-of-the-century rowhouse is tucked between two larger neighbors in Truxton Circle. The home was purchased in August for $405,000, but it is a bit different from the usual flip; the renovation has a stripped-away industrial look with exposed metal beams and a minimalist staircase. A modern kitchen with a small eat-in area leads out to a back patio. Upstairs are two bedrooms, each with a full bath, as well as a large deck. One of the neighbors offers up a windowless blank wall that the listing notes would be perfect for projecting movies.

  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5

    My wife and I visited Truxton Circle rowhouse open house last night. While it oozed cool there is VERY LITTLE storage. Perhaps the least I've ever seen in a rowhouse. I think this would be a perfect pied-a-tere for a rich person who would only be part time there and would pay someone to clean his house. But I couldn't see the average DC couple living their day-in day-out.
