GM was browsing the real estate listings on the back of the Georgetowner the other day and he came across this puzzling listing:
The home is a modest two bedroom row house, virtually identical to dozens and dozens throughout Georgetown (particularly the East Village). But this home offers something that no other house in Georgetown can: a two block walk to the Metro!
Wait a minute, what?
Two blocks to the Metro? How is that possible?
This house is on 26th just above P St. What is the walk to the Metro from there?
It’s somewhat debatable how you’d score the walk from 26th and P to 23rd and P, but it’s indisputable that there are (at least) two blocks simply between P and 23rd and P and 21st.
It takes some real chutzpah to describe this .7 mile walk as “two blocks.” (Maybe it’s this type of chutzpah that got WFP the crown for Georgetown Realtor of the Year). Good for WFP and the owner that they sold it in one day, but let’s hope the new owners took a stroll to the Metro first.
