Breezy Sale for Rare Rowhouse with Breezeway

The 14th Street corridor remains in high demand if the seven-day tenure of this T Street rowhouse is any indication. The Federal-style attached home blends into its one-way block, yet its interior offers more than meets the eye, with a main level centering around a two-story skylit breezeway. On one side of the breezeway, the dining room sits adjacent to the deep living area, where a gas fireplace sits with built-in shelving on either side and the bay window boasts a built-in bench. On the other side of the breezeway, the tiled kitchen features marble countertops and a wine fridge and also provides access to the rear wooden deck. The master bedroom upstairs enjoys use of three closets, while the second bedroom has a juliet balcony.

Speedy Sale for Cute Curb Appeal

This three-bedroom bungalow in Michigan Park also spent only seven days on the market. The house appears quaint from the curb, reading almost as single-story and sitting on a manicured, fenced-in lot.

Upstairs, the master suite has a skylight and a vaulted ceiling that also creates an extra window seating area and a dressing room nook with built-ins on both sides. The house also has front and rear porches, a detached garage and a partially-finished basement.

Rooms Within Rooms in Lincoln Park Rowhouse

A four-block walk from Lincoln Park, this rowhouse is packed with traditional charm that enticed a buyer to put it under contract six days after listing. The updates are subtle throughout, allowing the main level to be anchored by the original hardwood stair, wood-framed windows and doorways and exposed brick accent walls. The bright kitchen sits behind the stair on the right side of the house, with white cabinetry, appliances and fixtures contrasting with butcher block countertops. One of the bedrooms upstairs has an attached bonus room that opens into a sunroom. The partially-finished basement contains a shared laundry room/full bath. There is also a deep backyard with a red brick-paved area.
