719 Otis Place NW
This installment of Deal of the Week is a large, currently vacant row house with that most sought-after of features: a rental unit.
The four-bedroom home is located in Park View, the neighborhood just east of Columbia Heights and Petworth. The eventual owners will benefit from the development that will occur on nearby Georgia Avenue, and will be able to pop into The Coupe on 11th Street at any hour of the day.
Extra space abounds in the 2,040-square foot home, including areas like a sitting room upstairs and the potential for a second bedroom in the listing’s downstairs rental unit. The home has been renovated fairly recently and appears to be in good condition, with polished floors and crisp spaces.
Though it’s only been on the market for four days, the agent tells us that he already had six offers in hand. More details and photos below.
Update: Our Deals of the Week have a habit of getting snatched up shortly before we write about them. Such is the case with this home, which went under contract late Monday.
