Ever wonder who else is buying an EYA townhome? We're starting a new feature where we drop in on one of our neighborhood's original homeowners (with their permission, of course!) to get to know them better. This month we visited Lindsay and Jake at Chancellor's Row. They moved into their new townhouse nine months ago.
Why did you choose an EYA property? What attracted you to the surrounding neighborhood?
At the time, we weren’t even looking for a house. We saw a random ad for the opening of the EYA Chancellor's Row sales office and we thought, “Why not go check it out?". When we got to the trailer, we couldn’t believe the prices for such quality townhouses in DC. A week later, we were under contract.
What do you like most about your townhouse?
We like the space along with the fact that we have a garage and a rooftop deck with a view of the National Basilica. Also, we are not a fix-it-up couple, so getting a new house where we could easily pick out customized options made it a great fit.
What is your favorite restaurant/bar/store/etc. in the area?
It is probably our neighbors Mike and Patrick's house, but we're sure that doesn’t count! We've tried a few restaurants in the neighborhood, but our favorite thing to do is grill out at our house.
What neighborhood activities, if any, do you participate in?
We like exploring our neighborhood – 12th Street, Catholic University, Rhode Island Ave, the US Soldiers and Airmens Home Golf Course, Lincoln’s Cottage, etc. We are both runners and that allows us to see all different parts of Brookland.
Do you have a special place you like to vacation?
We are definitely beach vacation people (love the sun, sand and a tropical drink) and just got back from the Dominican Republic. But, at some point in the next few years, we plan on going to Italy to enjoy some good food and wine.
What are you personal interests / hobbies?
When we aren't working, we enjoy hanging out with friends, working out, watching sports (our Wisconsin sports teams have had a good year with the Wisconsin Badgers, Marquette Golden Eagles, Milwaukee Brewers and Green Bay Packers), and traveling to see our family members all over the US.
Stay tuned next month for a new EYA Homeowner Spotlight!
