The Skinny: Another great example of what's going on in the market right now, as it took all of eleven days to go pending and end up $400K over ask. Originally built in 1905, this Capitol Hill classic got a studs-out remodel in 2002 by JAS Design Build. They've certainly maintained a lot of that original charm but they've also updated it, especially in the kitchen where it's warm and inviting. We featured this place as part of Pricespotter a couple weeks back
