  • This house is adorable. And it seems to have plenty of space (play room and storage in the basement). I want it…!

  • Love that location, but that’s not an easy walk to the Metro. Blair can be a big ol’ mess. I do like a lot of the woodwork, but it could use some cosmetic updates. I’d like to see what the basement and attic look like, but all in all, I say it’ll go for at least $550K

    • I hope this gets bought by a person who will make those small cosmetic updates (looks like a coat of paint will fix most of it!) and not a developer who will take out all of the woodwork and walls and turn it into a soulless flip.

  • Good deal. Takoma is great!

  • Very cute. I proclaim it “deal.” And when the new development at Walter Reed takes place, even better deal.

  • This is exactly the kind of place I love. Original woodwork, updated kitchen that isn’t overdone and still fits with the character of the rest of the house, big yard and plenty of square footage. I’d say this is a great deal, and if I didn’t already have a house I’d be calling my realtor right about now.

  • This house has the look and feel of a set for a haunting/exorcism movie. If you look very closely you can see the ghost of an elderly woman in the attic window…

  • Cute house. We purchased just a house a block away this summer. Great Neighborhood. The Takoma metro is about a 10-12min walk. Super easy.

  • anyone know the owner? would LOVE to know the name of the paint color in the master bedroom…

  • Dirt cheap, in a decent neighbourhood, and with a garage. What’s the catch?

  • what kind of siding is that?

  • It’s an absolute bargain. Great neighborhood. Comparable just sold for $650,000 a few doors down. It’s underpriced!! Just needs good taste and cosmetics.
