This Truxton Circle home looks pleasant from the front and has a lot of potential in the back.
Listed this week for $774,900, the three-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom residence is about 1,500 square feet and located at 1536 First St. NW. The fenced backyard has lots of space for gardening or entertaining. The property also has a smaller fenced front yard.
Inside there are bamboo floors, a modern kitchen, and a basement with exposed brick. The home is just several blocks from multiple restaurants in Shaw and Bloomgindale, and about a 15-minute walk from the Shaw–Howard University Metro station.
The property “has a gorgeous Victorian facade, really nice natural light throughout, and a fantastic private patio with room for several seating areas, a fire pit, grill, bocce court...you get the idea,” says Compass’ Suzanne DesMarais, the listing agent.
It was renovated in 2013 and last sold for $565,000 that year, according to public records. An open house is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19.
