Ten Days for Petite House on the Hill

In a few years, the blocks surrounding this squat Federal rowhouse will be dappled with new developments and amenities, including redeveloped Safeway and Frager’s hardware stores and a repurposed, expanded version of the historic Shotgun House. The renovated house found a buyer in ten days and, along with its exterior architecture, has a traditional interior typical of the neighborhood. The rear of the house is visible from the living room, shotgun-style. A countertop divides the kitchen from the formal dining room, where a door provides access to the rear porch and the paved patio below.

The bathroom on the upper level has a skylight and heated floors and is on the upper level with the four bedrooms. There is also a front porch and rear patio, a partially-finished basement and a garage in the backyard.
