Five Days For A Renovated Carriage House 

Located on the corner of two of Capitol Hill's lesser known blocks, this carriage house-turned-residence also found a buyer on the same timeline as the listing above. An extensive 2019 renovation by the owners includes a complete gut and reconfiguration of the kitchen with Viking appliances and a reconfiguration of window placement along the back wall. One of UrbanTurf's favorite features is the private outdoor space just out the front door that sits alongside the recently rebricked alley.
