First Friday

This week, I found two listings in my neighborhood that will catch your fancy.  I've been watching the renovations on the first house for months.  The second house is one of my favorites because of it's unusual architecture and use of space.   Both are in the heart of U St. Corridor.  

1018 W St, NW
1018 W St, NW living room
1018 W St, NW kitchen
1018 W St, NW is a two bedroom, two and half bath house listed for $599,000.  It's 1240 square feet and the yearly taxes are $3,320.  (Taxes likely to increase because the house was just gutted and renovated.)  The property features bamboo hardwood floors, granite kitchen counter tops, stainless steel appliances, new windows and two fireplaces in the living room.  It has a small outdoor area and a deck.  Both bedrooms have beautiful bathrooms en suite.  It's minutes to the U St. Metro and nightlife.  It will be Open on Sunday, 8/21 from 1-4pm. 

990 Florida Ave, NW

990 Florida Ave, NW lr
990 Florida Ave, NW is a four bedroom, two bath house listed for $1,195,000.  It's 2,000 square feet and the yearly taxes are $5,744.  This house was built especially for the lot.  The architect had a fascination with corner lots and designed a house to reflect his enchantment.  It's been featured in The Washington Post Magazine.  It's four levels with a dramatic staircase running throughout the interior.  The open kitchen has concrete counters and stainless steel appliances.  There's in-floor radiant heat and solar powered electricity and hot water.  It's also a short walk to the U St. Metro and nightlife.  It's shown by appointment only.
