On an adorable residential street lined with Petworth’s signature rowhouses is where you’ll find this super spacious home. Petworth is an incredible community, especially for couples and young families. The location of the house is just a few blocks from the heart of Petworth and all the restaurants and pubs (Timer Pizza, Himitsu, Slim’s, Hank’s Cocktail bar, Taquieria, Ruta del Vino, Petworth Citizen, Slash Run, Hitching Post) as well as Petworth playground and splash park (which also hosts events all summer), the farmers market, library, and metro. It’s also a short walk to Safeway, Yes Organic, the Petworth Library, and Annie’s Ace Hardware. There is a real community vibe and it is rare to walk anywhere without running into multiple friends/neighbors.

Picture yourself relaxing on this home’s quaint front porch, perfect for sipping your morning coffee. The sellers love the neighborhood and their neighbors and they are so sad to leave them!  It’s a very social street, with frequent happy hours on the porch and dinner parties.

Winner of the Curbed 2015 Neighborhood of the Year, Petworth is definitely a hot place to be in DC. Not familiar with Petworth? Check out the Petworth News blog, or featured stories about Petworth in Curbed, the New York Times, and the Washington PostThis location is also good for commuters as it’s just a short jaunt to the metro, and a few minutes to both Rock Creek Parkway and North Capital, which means you can get in and out of the city pretty easily.

The sellers say this home has also allowed them to really appreciate Rock Creek Park and it has become central to a lot of what they do with our kids. Hiking, fishing (just don’t eat what you catch), bike riding, running, campfire brunches, etc. It’s easy to squeeze in a quick adventure after work and before dinner. Do you know about the secret location in Rock Creek where the old Capital Stones are hidden? The seller’s kids definitely do! 

This home is in the middle of everything you could possible want — restaurants, shopping, a library, daycare, and groceries, and a quick metro ride to other DC delights for both day and night.
