864 Square Feet Finds a Buyer in 6 Days

Over in Hill East, a short walk from the Potomac Avenue Metro station, this slim, two-story Federal rowhouse may appear petite in comparison to its neighbors, but its 864 square-foot interior boasts an efficient layout that offers more than meets the eye. The main level is well-suited to entertaining, with a bright, open living area that leads directly to the dining room and kitchen beyond, where cabinetry lines the walls on either side of the centered back door. Just outside, the rear yard has two levels, with an at-grade patio stepping up to a small grassy area that can potentially be converted into a parking pad; a detached shed is also on the upper level. Upstairs, the two bedrooms share a skylit full bath with jetted tub.

An Anacostia House Surrounded by History

Just across the Anacostia River, the six-day sale of this detached house exemplifies how things are heating up in the typically affordable east-of-the-River housing market. This three-bedroom sits halfway between Good Hope Road and the Frederick Douglass House in the historic Anacostia neighborhood. The interior starts with a foyer that leads to the hallway and stairs to the left and the living areas along the right. This level ends with the spacious eat-in kitchen, which has an industrial-style island, subway-tile backsplash, a wall of cabinetry and a double farmhouse sink. The house also has a cozy front porch and an impressive rear deck, running the length of the generous yard with built-in bench seating and an attached shed.
