Close It!™ House of the Week: Old charm with modern upgrades

For this installment of our House of the Week series, we’re falling in love with a gorgeous single family home in Brookland with a massive yard that has outdoor entertaining space and a garden, plus a large living room and dining space. It has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms and is listed for $899,000.

Exposed brick, refinished wood floors throughout and mature landscaping lend an air of old charm to this oasis in the city while heated tiles, a chef’s kitchen and other modern touches are sure to appeal to the desires of today’s homebuyer. The wrap-around front porch and fenced in yard make this an ideal home for families with kids and pets.

Assuming a homebuyer puts down 20 percent on a conventional loan, her cash to close number will be approximately $206,339.07. Monthly payments will then be around $3,887.15. For a complete picture of the cash to close, including the seller’s side of a transaction like this, try the Web version of Close It™ or download the free Close It™ iOS app.
