  • Almost $7 million and there is not even a pool or a large-ish yard? I think one could find a house with more amenities for the same amount. Pass.

    • Right? The pictures did a good job of hiding the neighbors you’d be sitting right on top of. I would gladly take less house for larger property.

    • Heh, I came here to say that this seems like a great deal compared to the 2br/2ba 1,200 sqft penthouse condo in the Atlantic Plumbing building that’s on the market for $2 million.

  • It’s a bit small. I guess the micro unit trend is really catching on.

  • It has a very cold vibe

  • I’m really curious how you can see Rock Creek from here

  • Kinka think most of the market for this sort of house is not reading popville.

  • You guys are ridiculous.

    The RCP the listing refers to is the spit of parkland along Mass. Ave. across from the USNO.

    You wouldn’t see many neighbors since the house is on the circle and the homes spread out from a common point. Plus, it is up top a hill, so the backyard neighbor would be below you.

    In my opinion, this is one of the handful of nicest houses in the district. Top 20 or so.

    • May I assume you are a $6.5+ million dollar, “Top 20” homeowner since you seem to be quite the expert? People can have a differing option – it’s okay. Relax. Deep breaths.

      It’s not my taste, but some of the comments are redic. Too small for the price? want a larger yard? Sitting on top of neighbors? Are we looking at the same listing? I see plenty of yard and housing prices in the DMV are insane.

  • I think you can get more bang for your six million bucks.
    But I really like most of the furniture.

  • “Restored” my butt. Every last inch of gorgeous woodwork has been painted over. Instead of an elegant, personality-filled 1920s tudor revival, it just looks blah. Lovely enough, but blah.

    • I completely agree. All the period charm is gone and the interior looks drab and boring a la a typical stager’s view of the world. Blah, indeed.

      I noticed that too. The only thing that looked period was the iron railing on the steps down to living room. Very disappointing with the restoration gutting of the house.

  • I like it but while I am spending money I don’t have I would also like a pool for my $6M. That said, the walk-in closet and master bath are about the size of my apartment, so I clearly have no idea what I am talking about.

  • This would be a good temporary place for President Trump to live while he has the White House renovated and gilded.

  • If I can buy a $7m house in the first place, I won’t need a pool because I will be summering in … I don’t even know where one summers anymore – Bar Harbor? Lake George? Newport? In any case, no one summers in Washington – darlings this is a winter house.
