Four Days on Beloved Walter Street

One of 48 houses on one-way Walter Street, this two-bedroom rowhouse sits on the close-knit street on the eastern edge of Capitol Hill.

This home features a wood stove-style fireplace in the living room and a rear patio great for hosting your neighbors for a house-warming. The whole package resulted in the home finding a buyer in just four days.
