  • I like it. Looks much more spacious on the inside than it does from outside. Nice fenced in yard with a driveway too. Perhaps a tad overpriced for the area?

    It’s kind of a unique exterior situation, but I love that neighborhood. Maybe I’d rather have one of the neighboring houses, though.

    • My thought when looking at it is the interior is much nicer that the exterior. It’s an odd looking house from the outside.

      • Made that much odder because it looks like a building only got half painted. I will say that the Streetview picture indicates that the upper half had been previously painted which is why I think they just went and painted it but it still looks odd.

  • From one of the bedroom pics- it looks like you have to walk through one bedroom to get to another? Maybe there’s another entrance as well?

    • From looking at the listing, that’s maybe the “possible 5th bedroom in the bump-out space?” While families in DC tend not to be that large, a room like that would be great for someone with enough kids that two had to share…a little space of their own. Would also work nicely if you tend to host family (a room your brother/sister and their kid(s) could share…two guests rooms in one kinda thing). Alternatively, and what I would do, guest room/office, with neither needing to be re-arranged for guests.
      Definitely an unusual layout, but it does seem to make decent use of that space.

  • Seems overpriced for Manor Park. In particular:
    1. Connected bedrooms seems unusual. Most would use it as a workspace instead of a bedroom, I think.
    2. Dining room also seems smushed for a table that would fit a family that needs 4-5 bedrooms.
    3. Curb appeal is a definite problem.
    4. Backyard needs lots of work to make it feel homey. No flippers ever invest in the yard. When are we going to start seeing yard staging become a thing?

  • The kitchen sink lacks a faucet.
