    Cute place, nice price. Not sure why “Storybook” is capitalized.

  • Never seen Corian given a highlight. A good price for the area–reflects “need” (mostly non-existent in a critical sense from the pics) for updating. I wonder if something more critical like the HVAC is getting a little elderly.

  • It’s small, needs updating and doesn’t have much of a backyard, but this seems pretty good for the location. You’re 2 blocks from Lafayette ES. GD at this price.

  • I wouldn’t be surprised to see this escalate to $1 million. It reminds me a bit of a house on the same street that went for over a million last year. It’s a great house in a perfect location for Chevy Chase.

      If my baby daddy wasn’t a deadbeat and could contribute a few effing dollars to the mortgage we would pick up our kids and sell our my recently gentrified big pretty rowhouse for this at this price in a heartbeat. Can’t afford it on my own though.

  • I’m not familiar with prices in this part of town – will this go for list or significantly over/under?

  • Good deal, as noted above. This will go quickly. Only thing keeping down the price might be the minor updates needed and the fact that the intersection of McKinley and Nebraska is a little on the busy side, traffic-wise. The E-series buses run right past the house on McKinley. Bus stop right at your door, tho.

      Aside from the occasional ambulance that runs down Nebraska, it’s actually really quiet. Most traffic on Nebraska is turning down Military Road so by the time you get to this area it’s pretty much local traffic and the E Bus.

  • Whatever it goes for, houses like this in this price range sell immediately. And of course it needs some updating – there is H, but no central AC. Someone can add that. And redo whatever they want over time, as it is perfectly livable as is. To many, that’s preferable (functional, if kinda plain and dated kitchens and baths) to a home recently redone in ugly, or just not to your taste, styles. Here you can do what you want, over time if need be.

      I see ceiling AC vents in a couple of the pictures. I think this is a great deal.

      • Odd the realtor didn’t list it in the listing then. Important to know in older houses that weren’t built with it – you can assume it is there in newly built ones.

    • +1. This is basically a blank slate, and could be made to look really amazing with, say, $25k and a little creativity. Would much rather buy something like this than overpay for modern and color-coordinated flipper-grade finishes.

  • What storybook? Goosebumps? Meh, pass.

    What are those *partitions* around the open floor plan space on the first floor? I’m not sure I have seen those on PoPville before ;-)”
