Guests of this Shaw townhome will first greet an oh-so-contemporary facade and a sculpture designed by Florida-based artist Geoffrey Meyers.
Inside the 1,515-square-foot townhome, there are two bedrooms, a den (potential third bedroom!), and two-and-a-half bathrooms along with amenities like a rooftop terrace and off-street parking. The nearest Metro station is also only a block or two away.
The listing price is $1,094,000. It last sold in November 2008 for $245,000. What has helped escalate the price so much is its sleek, contemporary kitchen and bathrooms, built-ins, and spacious fenced-in front yard.
The listing agent is Anthony Hain of Compass.
