916_G-ext916 G St, NW #802

Washington, DC 20001

1 bedroom | 1 bath

885 square feet | $450.59 condo fee

list price: $494,500

sold price: $480,000 with a $14,400 seller credit

DOM: 126

I represented the buyer on this transaction and she got a fantastic deal.  We stalked this unit for months which worked to her advantage.  In this particular case, the seller had moved out of state, the unit had been on the market 126 days and they were ready to sell.  A seller credit is virtually unheard of in the current DC market. Congrats to my client! I hope you enjoy your new home in Penn Quarter.

latest and greatest

Latest-and-greatest-feb14February was chock full of fun stuff.  I finally photographing my favorite door in DC (love it!). My husband gave me beautiful tulips for Valentine's Day (awww).  I explored  a few exhibits at the Building Museum and the National Portrait Gallery. I'm obsessed with the architecture in both museums. I'm finally feeling better too. Homemade chicken noodle soup is a cure all.  I can't wait to see what March brings!

Chicken-noodle-soup

This is a repost because I feel terrible today.  It's snowing (so.over.the.snow), my head is pounding and I want to go back to bed.  The saving grace of today is the vat of chicken noodle soup simmering on the stove.  My husband is a rock star. This was originally posted in December 2011.

it’s one of those days

Jt photo

It's one of those days:  I'm getting sick, my head is killing me and I have absolutely no ideas for my post today.  Actually, I have a few but did not prep accordingly. Which is why we're going to talk about the Justin Timberlake 20/20 tour which was in DC last night.  

I went (definitely DID NOT help my cold but whatevs..it's JT, people) and it was amazing.  I was never an N' Sync (in fact, I wrote IN Sync not N' Sync initially..duh) fan but I've always been a JT fan.  I've been insanely excited about this concert for weeks and the show was everything I expected. He is ridiculously talented.  I'm still dancing.  Did anyone else attend?  What did you think? If it's coming to your city, GO!

riveting rooms

Paso-al-salon_ampliacionThis weekend held the first hint of Spring.  The weather was sunny and warm. I'm hoping the worst of winter has passed.  Nice weather is an instant mood booster for me and I want to spend as much time outside as possible. It makes me start dreaming about vacations in fantastic locals.  This room is from a wonderful villa in the Tuscan countryside.  I love the contrast of old and new. (That arched doorway and ceiling. So beautiful!) While Italy isn't a destination this year, my best friend from college lived there for years and I was able to visit often.  Where are you going this year?

the fainting goat

The-fainting-goatNew restaurant alert!  The Fainting Goat, located at 1330 U St, NW, opened in December.  The concept for the tavern, which took over the old Urban Essentials space, was announced in January 2013.  While the building out of the space didn't take long, the liquor license was delayed by the ANC.

Cake-slice1On Valentine's Day, my husband and I had a dinner party instead of going out. I believe dessert should always be served when friends are over.  While often decadent, it's a wonderful excuse to try new recipes. This cake was amazing.

American-cool-exhibitWho and what do you think is cool? It's a question that drives most industries: fashion, entertainment, music, interior design and technology. It's a question that shapes our psyche as a nation. That's what the American Cool exhibit discusses at the National Portrait Gallery.  I went over the weekend and it's an intriguing, fun concept.  I enjoy popular culture, trends and what's "new".  It's also fascinating to look back and see how we got here.  As the sign says, it runs till September 7th. Go check it out.

riveting rooms

White tile under bar

I'm a detail girl.  I notice the tiniest things.  When I first saw this photo, I focused on the pillows.  Then I noticed that exquisite light fixture (you know me..always color and light fixtures first).  The best part about the room?  The octagon tile below the bar.  It's adds another texture but is unobtrusive.  Details.  They're so important.

Happy Valentine's Day!  I'm hosting a dinner party tonight instead of going out and I couldn't be more excited. There's a porchetta in the oven (yum) and the flourless chocolate cake has been baked (recipes and photos next week).  It's going to be a great evening.  Have a wonderful day and smooches to your loved one.
