WASHINGTON — Sen. Elizabeth Warren is making herself at home in the nation's capital, both on and off Capitol Hill.

After gaining attention for grilling regulators at a recent hearing over the scarcity of bank prosecutions, the freshman senator and creator of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was reported to have recently entered the Washington real estate market.

Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, is settling into a new 1,400-square-foot condo in the city's downtown neighborhood of Penn Quarter, according to the Washington Post.

The paper reported that Warren closed on the $740,000 two-bedroom, two bath abode last month.

But not everything was perfect in her new digs. She referenced a broken oven in a Feb. 14 blog post. Warren wrote that she bakes heart-shaped cakes every year on Valentine's day in honor of her deceased mother whose birthday also fell on that day.
