A Palisades Colonial That's Rehabbed Inside and Retro Outside


The Palisades — the "Leave it to Beaver"-ish northwest D.C. 'hood — is adjacent both to G-town and tons of water (the C&O Canal, the Potomac, a pretty reservoir). It also boasts quaint housing stock, like this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath 1939 brick colonial which features an exterior straight out of TCM but a bright 2005 interior renovation. Big windows mean lots of light throughout the first floor, where there's a stylish (if small) kitchen starring granite counters and what looks to be maple cabinets, a cute powder room, an airy living room and a slender home office (though we might cut the chalkboard paint from that one wall). Upstairs, there are three good-sized bedrooms and two baths. The basement, which the listing dubs "perfect for a live-in" is a bit dark and possesses a minimal and frankly unfinished little kitchen, a bedroom and seemingly original bathroom (also unfinished). But the au pair presumably gets to enjoy the bucolic backyard and screened-in porch. Ask is $1,250,000. - Jenn Barger · 4640 RESERVOIR Rd NW [Redfin]
