Do you remember the 1986 classic film adaptation of Nora Ephron's "Heartburn?" Oh vey this film tugged at my heartstrings! While in the movie Rachel (Meryl Streep) and Mark (Jack Nicholson) purchase a home in Georgetown (which they renovate shortly after having their first child and ultimately the renovations place an insurmountable strain on their marriage), the real-life house is located at 327 A Street SE in Capitol Hill. It was recently put on the market for the first time in more than 40 years and sold this week.
Four reasons this house is super cool:
- The house is older than the Library of Congress
- It's the "home" of one of my favorite movie couples of all time!
- The property went under contract less than a week after hitting the market
- And it sold for more than the asking price!
“It’s incredible to consider the history behind this home,” said realtor Ryall Smith. “It’s been meticulously maintained through the decades but also offers modern-day updates. Buyers in the area clearly saw the value in the property and we had three offers on the home in less than one week.”
- Neighborhood: Capitol Hill
- Bedrooms: 3
- Bathrooms: 4 (two full and two partial)
