Featuring nearly 2,000 square feet of potential, this unique Petworth Rowhome is one of Urban Brokers’ newest listings.  It’s perfect for an investor or an owner occupant looking for some sweat equity.  While the property is habitable, most will want to completely renovate the home.   Many of the rowhomes on this unique block in Petworth have mansard roofs and centered front doors giving the homes a symmetrical look.  Great qualities about this particular Petworth rowhome include the addition of central air and heat and high ceilings in the basement making a basement renovation worthwhile.  The ideal renovation would create a four bedroom, 3.5 bath home.  Three bedrooms and two full baths on the upper level, a half bath on the main, and another bedroom, and bath in the basement.  The home boasts a 1,620 square foot lot with off-street parking in the rear.

The property is located in booming Petworth.  Just 9/10ths mile north of the Petworth Metrorail station, the home features a plethora of amenities nearby including two grocery stores (Safeway & Yes! Organic), and numerous new retailers along Petworth’s neighborhood commercial strip on Upshur Street (just 5 blocks away).  Former President Obama has made three trips to the neighborhood over recent years including one visit with his daughters to the Upshur Street Books store on Small Business Saturday.  There are numerous public transit choices nearby including frequent bus service along Georgia Ave, Capital Bikeshare, and the Georgia Ave/Petworth Metrorail Station which is on the Green/Yellow line.
