Somebody got a very nice holiday present this year. Designed to fit seamlessly into the existing neighborhood, this newly built home features a “full service elevator”. Perhaps more importantly, the master bedroom boasts “his and hers baths”. (Anecdotally, I swear that the most common objection I heard from buyer agents regarding house listings in 2012 was that everybody (no, really, Everybody) needed two bathrooms upstairs.)
Whereas in most of the neighborhoods featured on PoPville we look at the neighborhood as having transitioned from “up and coming” to “pretty much there” once the sales start consistently hitting the $600k mark, we’re in a bit of a different ballpark here. The subject property is the highest recent sale within a third of a mile since June, however, there was another $3,000,000.+ sale that also occurred in December at 3210 Newark St NW. Of the thirteen settled fee simple sales in this immediate area since June, eleven of them were seven figure transactions. The lowest sale prices were at $755,100. and $890,000.
