Question of the Day
Enterprise Homes and the family of Abe Pollin are building 83 town homes at MetroTowns at Parkside: The Linda Joy and Kenneth Jay Pollin Community in Northeast Washington. The development is a public-private partnership with the District of Columbia government and is under construction by Bozzuto Construction Co.
The community will include a central square with a sitting area. It is located near the Minnesota Avenue Metro station, the East River shopping center, Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens and the Dorothy I. Height/Benning Neighborhood Library.
The homes have a traditional row-house design with exteriors of brick or durable fiber-cement siding, a front porch or front stoop, a rear balcony, professional landscaping and a one-car garage or private off-street parking space.
Inside, all three models feature three finished levels with three bedrooms; 2 1/2 or 3 1/2 baths; hardwood flooring on the main living level; 9-foot ceilings on the main level; 42-inch cabinets, granite counters and a storage pantry in the eat-in kitchen; a private master bath with cultured-marble vanity tops; pre-wiring for cable, high-speed Internet and telephone service; high-efficiency heating and air conditioning; Energy Star windows and appliances; and other green features. Each home comes with a home warranty.
The homes have 1,288 to 1,444 finished square feet, with base prices from $259,900 to $284,900. Homeowner association fees are $50 per month.
The Kenneth model, with 1,444 square feet, is priced from $284,900. This home has a front porch leading into a foyer with stairs to the main level, a double-door closet, a door leading into a bedroom with an attached full bath, and an entry into the garage.
The main level has an open floor plan with a living and dining area, three windows at the front of the house and a powder room. At the back of this level are the kitchen and breakfast area and a sliding glass door to the balcony.
Upstairs, the master suite has a walk-in closet and a private bath. The second bedroom has two closets. A second full bath and a laundry room complete the level.
