This no-frills, four-bedroom house is a roomy 1,400 square feet with a renovated kitchen. The combo living/dining room is spacious, though the bedrooms are on the small side. The large concrete basement may scream “Beer Pong Tournament!” but more wholesome uses might be appreciated in this quiet neighborhood. There is a backyard with room for parking ­— the Metro is nearly a mile away. Contact: Anthony Evans, owner, 202-713-5844
