The owners of this two-bedroom, semidetached home are selling “because they’re looking for something bigger,” says the real-estate agent. In preparation for its return to the market, the federal-style house underwent an “extensive” renovation including fresh paint throughout and new stainless-steel appliances and a tile floor in the kitchen. Take notice of the first floor’s “adorable” (read: tiny) powder room, featuring a porcelain sink and new marble floors. The private courtyard will give you a place to stretch out, but clotheshorses will be disappointed by the minute closets, and on-street parking can be a problem, says the agent. So get used to that G2 bus. —Constantine Caloudas
