Second Time’s the Charm Off 14th Street

This partially updated Federal-style rowhouse was featured just last week and offers its new owners a lot of original features, like the pine wood flooring and the bay window and exposed brick trim in the master bedroom. A set of French doors open the dining room onto the fenced-in backyard, where there is also a stone-paved patio area. A skylit stairwell leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor. An offer on day nine fell through, but another offer was accepted the following day.
