This charming townhouse is almost too good to be true. It's all about location here, and the clever architecture that makes this home feel bigger than it actually is.

The Observatory Circle location means you'll be in the thick of things, within walking distance to shops and excellent restaurants. This week's featured listing is a townhouse that feels like a detached single-family home – just look and see!

For starters, the landscaping is absolutely gorgeous with plenty of greenery and creeping vines. You wouldn't guess that this was just built in 2002.

Walk into an inviting open floor plan and relax in your library, living room, or any of the other receiving rooms on the main level.



The kitchen is full of sleek, modern appliances and tons of workspace for the gourmet cook in the family. It leads off to a generous breakfast nook and dayroom.



Your epic dinner parties will linger in your formal dining room, a great space to also highlight your art collection.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are paired with luxurious bathrooms – no skimping on space here, either!



Even the family room is spacious enough for a large screen and comfortable furniture for everyone to enjoy movie night.

If grilling is what you want to do all weekend, you have a lush, landscaped yard to set up your domain. You've got the space for a grill and a couple of sous chefs to lounge while you prepare your meal.


This is one of the best features of this property – an elevator leads down to the garage level where you have two parking spots. No more shoveling to get your car out in the winter! Hooray!


This week's dream home is located at 3700 Cathedral Avenue NW and is currently listed for $2,795,000. It has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a powder room as well as two underground parking spaces.
