Property Description

917 S. Columbus Street

Ease, access and elegance are packaged prettily in this classic brick townhouse on 917 S. Columbus Street. You’ll enjoy the quiet setting of an end unit and find plenty of space in its finely finished interior and landscaped backyard.

A neutral palette and handsome wood floors complement any tastes, and you’ll settle in easily at 917 S. Columbus. The only dilemma you’ll face will be deciding which sunny exposure (there are three!) merits your comfiest chair for relaxing with coffee and a book. The main level has new hardwoods extending through the living room and dining room, and the kitchen is renovated with granite countertops and stainless steel, energy-efficient appliances. A window above the kitchen sink keeps the well-appointed room glowing with natural light.

The upper levels feature custom blinds, and the finished basement boasts a guest unit as well as space for a telecommuter’s desk, or a media corner. You won’t want to stay inside with a landscaped backyard custom-designed for entertaining! The deck and lush green space beckon party guests, but they’re also private enough for a casual weekday dinner al fresco. A storage shed in the backyard is just one spot to tuck away supplies — you’ve also got space in your attic and furnace room.

You’ll be steps away from Old Town’s gourmet grocery, Balducci’s, as well as neighborhood destinations like District Taco, Southside and Ace Hardware. Take the bikes to Jones Point Park, or go for a run along the Potomac River-hugging Mt. Vernon Trail. Minutes from the Beltway, this home is perfectly situated for the busy Washingtonian.
