A Petworth home set a record high sales price for the neighborhood in February. The property on Princeton Place in Northwest Washington, DC is just a few blocks from the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro station. The home was listed for $749,900, but after eight days on the market, the closing price soared to $770K.
The three-level attached row home was built in 1920, but has a newly renovated contemporary style with an open floor plan. The Petworth home is 2,780 total square feet of finished space with 1,920 above ground and 860 square feet in the basement. The front of the home is brick painted yellow, while the rear is vinyl siding.
The Petworth home includes four bedrooms -- three upstairs and one in the basement. It also contains three full baths and one half bath with master-crafted marble. You’ll find nine-foot or higher ceilings throughout the home, plus cathedral ceilings in the master bedroom, and plenty of natural light.
The main and upper levels feature hardwood floors, while the basement is carpeted. The Petworth home was completely renovated in 2012 with modern touches like granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, dark cabinets, and a tile backsplash in the kitchen. The kitchen also has plenty of counter area with space for breakfast bar seating. Exposed brick is a beautiful focal point of the dining room. The main floor also includes a family room that leads to the back deck.
Upstairs, you’ll find a spacious master bedroom with a cathedral ceilings and high windows for extra light. The master bath features his and her sinks and lots of counter space. The upper level also includes a separate laundry room with front-loading appliances.
The basement can serve as an in-law suite with an outside entrance, bedroom, full bathroom, and efficiency kitchen with a full-size stainless steel refrigerator. The basement kitchen matches the beautiful modern one on the main floor. The Petworth home also features a private driveway.
