  • I’d probably pay $600k for it.

    House seems in OK condition, it’s rare seeing those drop down rooms in these rowhomes. Would be great if they’re able to get that much per sqft here.

    • What the heck is up with that drop down? It doesn’t appear that the house is on a slope. Does that mean there’s a large crawl/storage space under the living room?
      Also, the narrow bridge suspended between the between the bedrooms is nuts, lol
      The layout of this place is crazy.

        Yeah my guess would be they stole space from the crawl space. Ours is large enough to do something similar, but not big enough by any means for a basement. It’s just kind of wasted space, but I’m no architect or engineer, so I don’t know if they serve some other structural purpose.

    Honestly, didn’t love it… I am not obsessed with an open floorplan, but this seemed a bit to far on the other spectrum. Also the house is in need of a lot of updating. That all said, I can see the potential, but the price seems a bit high for what it is.

  • 2 BR/1 Bath now goes for $650 K? Wow!!

  • Looks like a very cheap kitchen reno.

  • I like how they took a picture of the front and put it through three different filters on Instagram.

    Interior photos make it appear very narrow, especially upstairs, in relation to what I would have expected from the outside. Looks like the stairs take up about a quarter to a third of the width of the whole house, and it’s not that the stairs are particularly wide. If the tax records are correct, there is no basement. I am very curious to see what this goes for, as I can’t imagine it being profitable to a flipper at anywhere close to asking, and it seems on the high side for an owner occupant who is probably going to want to do a fair amount of work. Note that it’s been on the market for 21 days already.

  • Small, awkward rooms. Nothing wrong with the kitchen. Not every house has to have a Viking range and granite. Probably has a partial crawl space. I’d say it’s overpriced.

    • HaileUnlikely

      Agreed on kitchen. I’ll spend the next 5 years saving up to redo my kitchen, and what is pictured here would be aspirational for me at this point.

  • 650 seems a little high to me. Some components of the layout are cool and the backyard is huge. Not much space for a dining area though, and 1 bath is not enough. The finishes are pretty blah. Some bigger places nearby have sold nearby on Emerald for just a little more, although this has a yard. I’d say 625.

  • Wood burning fireplace is nice but no way would I pay $650k for 1 bathroom.

  • Is that some kind of raised patio in the back, or is it just the way the light falls in the photos?

  • NOT.

    for that much money, 2 people need to be able to pee at the same time.

  • So glad I bought a home when and where I did. This is the kind of DC townhouse I had. Narrow, cramped, not much light despite being and end unit. Just looks kind of dingy overall.

  • I hate those stairs. Stairs like that always seemed so dangerous and impractical, I’d be worried about children and my cats falling/getting bold and jumping.
