Formerly Fugly Petworth Townhome Undergoes Much-Needed Transformation, Asks $720K

This Petworth townhome transformed like a scene out of a cliche RomCom. Like a nerdy girl taking off her glasses and letting down her hair, this listing has cast out its most frumpy qualities and adopted a refreshing open floor plan, new hardwood floors, an updated kitchen, and recessed lighting. The 1,725-square-foot abode previously sported a garish red brick facade with red window shutters and a red porch. The fenced-in backyard was also pretty grungy, covered in red mulch with weedy overgrowth in random areas. For the backyard, the renovation graciously installed a new green lawn, new wooden steps from the main level, and a new door for the in-law suite's private entrance. In the front, the architect painted the brick facade a dull greyish blue, painted the steps a light grey, and removed the steel railing to install a wooden railing. A second-story balcony was also added for good measure. In the kitchen, you can find a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, and a wine cooler. The master bedroom includes a tray ceiling with LED lights and a double shower ensuite bathroom. The lower level to this three-story abode is fully finished. While last sold on July 11, 2014 for $405,000, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom townhome is back on the market for $719,500.
