This Week’s Find: The Ultimate Two-Bedroom Condo Alternative

by Mark Wellborn

413 4th Street NE

This Week’s Find is a two-bedroom townhome just north of Stanton Park in Capitol Hill, and is one of the better alternatives to a condo we have seen in some time. The first floor is very wide with a floating stairwell that separates the kitchen and dining area from the living room. There are two working fireplaces on the main level as well as a built-in desk beneath the stairs that has a wood inlay work surface. (Another cool feature is that the front door of the home features a hand-carved eagle with a peep hole that doubles as the eagle’s eye.) Both bedrooms have large windows, and the master has built-ins and a separate seating area. The home’s back patio can be used to entertain, but it also doubles as a parking spot. More details and photos below.

  • Address: 413 4th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $639,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,368
  • Listing Agent: Gary Jankowski, Coldwell Banker

    Houses like this always make me jealous.

    High price for a 2-bedroom/2-bath townhouse with no basement.  Nice renovations, but I bet it goes for 600k or less.  Also, why didn’t they put in central a/c when they did all those renovations?

    I will be very surprised if this goes for much below the asking. Its location and price per square are reasons enough for the current price tag.

    it’s a nice place, and good location. Disappointing that it doesn’t have central air, but the parking spot is huge for that area.

    always disappointing when so much effort is put into a renovation ..
    and it just quite doesn’t make it….  obvious done to “sell” .ie. not a lot of cohesiveness .. could have been much “cleaner” modern and sophisticated than it is..

  1. Mike said at 3:22 pm on Monday November 8, 2010:

    I toured this place this weekend.  It was a bit disappointed.  It had good space, but the kitchen remodel was underwhelming (and too small).  I felt there were too many “cheap” renovations to justify the price, despite the fantastic location.  The lack of central air was also disappointing.  I think it would be more appropriately priced in the mid-500s, although I bet someone overpays for it.
