About this listing
The eat in kitchen has been recently renovated with a deck over looking the backyard with Roses, Peach Trees, a Koi Pond, gas grill and a lot of PRIVACY even though we are only a block from Massachusetts Ave.
We recently installed a whole house water filter -meaning all of the water you drink and wash and bath with is as PURE as the water you pay for in bottles! This was one of the of big home investments made this year. So you can feel good about drinking from the tap! And even better about taking a shower or bath! I love clean water!
