The 30th of the month finds us in the Forest Hills

Posted by Asha | Filed under: Howe's List

Forest Hills is perfect for the home seeker looking for a quite escape close to all the amenities of urban living as well as the (almost) wilderness area of Rock Creek Park

The elegant #306 of  The Parker House on Connecticut Avenue is now listed at $549, 000 dollars. We are planning a Holiday open house unlike any other as to ensure we all celebrate this price reduction in style.

Come view this two bedroom with one and a half bathroom December 7th from 12-4 and be sure to bring a new toy to be donated to Toys for Tots.  Should you forget to bring a brand new toy for a well deserving child, Discovery Toys will be present along with five other gift vendors ready to help you choose fun holiday gifts for everyone on your list.

Looking for parking and storage space without the added necessity of lawn and structural maintenance one would find in a big detached home?  Included in the purchase price of this condominium is a 1 car lockable garage, a separate parking space, storage unit, and solarium through gorgeous 8 feet French doors lilluminating the rest of this open space.

Jimmy Carter will be signing copies of his new book, White House Diary, at Politics and Prose at 5015  Connecticut Avenue, Tomorrow from 9 AM to 12:30 PM.

In Memory of Carla Cohen who thought to herself -some twenty years ago- “How can we select a Washington-sounding name without being pretentious? It worked against us in the beginning, since customers thought we specialized—that we didn’t include cooking and children, poetry and travel. Now—well, it’s just our name.” This name, synonymous with some of the most influential published intellects of the last century time, might not have avoided pretension completely, though it hardly seems possible in this community of Washingtonians.

“Comet Ping Pong should be a destination for anyone who cares about contemporary art. The restaurant itself is a work of art — it could be an exhibit in the Tate Modern — a tongue-in-cheek masterwork, so full of playful references that you might forget how brilliantly executed it is.”
Don Rockwell, Washington Public Radio, Restaurant Critic

Comet Pizza, a mastery of flavorful food harvested locally in a sustainable manner.  Between the Bell’s Kalamazoo Bottles, Smokey, and well, “The Best Tiramisu Ever”  this is a must try kind of spot whether you live in Forest Hills or are simple visiting from elsewhere in DC or the World.

And finally the gorgeous woodsy retreat I was initially referring to, 3250 FESSENDEN ST NW, WASHINGTON, DC.

Though the property has been on the market for quite some time, it’s still a beauty and I’ve been eyeing it for ages hoping someone would come along to customize and enjoy it as their own.  The secluded backyard escape features all the wonderful amenities of a Bethesda Home though this has a DC address and all the conveniences of living in an urban area just seconds away.

The large cathedral style windows help open up the already spacious and light floor plan while illuminating the gorgeous light wood floors throughout the main floor of the house.  And the kitchen is something to boast about with  three restaurant quality ranges, built in ovens, multiple sinks, and enough refrigerator and dry storage space to accommodate even a 5 cart Costco trip and enough Hors d’œuvres for all 10 of your holiday parties.
