Washingtonians live in a variety of dwellings typical of an urban setting. Downtown, it's mostly rowhouses, apartments, and condominiums. As you move out from the central district, you continue to find some rowhouses and a few apartment buildings, but you also start to see more semi-detached rowhouses and single family dwellings. In Upper Northwest, most of the homes to the west of Rock Creek Park are single family. On the eastern side, it's a mix. In my neighborhood there are a few single family dwellings that are obviously loved and well-cared for. This one is my favorite. I love the robin's egg blue they painted it and every time I walk past it, I smile.
To see a couple more houses that are neighborhood beauties, visit Standing Room Only. And be sure to visit tomorrow. I'll be posting a picture of our current mayor's home.
