  • This $789,000 Capitol Hill rowhouse has a “secret garden,” which means it just has a lot of ivy crawling through the front yard. [Zillow]
  • If you’ve dreamed of owning a home where each room is painted a different bright color, here’s your chance. [craigslist]
  • A 2,600-square-foot Kennedy Street NW space has … zero bedrooms, according to this listing. It’s $2.3 million but sold for about one-third of that in January 2017. [Zillow]
  • Anyone else have nightmarish visions of slipping on staircases like these and injuring a limb? [Zillow]
  • Let it be known that this classic Woodridge home has, count ’em, 42 kitchen cabinets. It can be yours for $735,000. [Zillow]
  • Does this renovated two-bedroom rowhouse in Anacostia come with the dog? [craigslist]
