  • Seems right on. Not too many houses available in Brookland in this price point anymore. You could probably get $1000/month for the basement as a rental.

      I agree

    • You could, but I didn’t see a separate entrance on the front of the house, just the back. Doesn’t that make it an illegal rental? The house itself looks to be in pretty good shape, but as is typical with a lot of the rowhouses on that stretch, the extra bedrooms are tiiiiiny. It’s probably priced about right.

    It still has walls! *swoon*

    • +5000. I don’t care if it might be slightly less efficient use of space, but I almost always prefer a less open floorplan. Otherwise, it feels like you are just living in an oversized apartment, so what’s the point!

  • I’m not sure about this address, but I’m pretty sure most of Brookland is not zoned to have a separate downstairs rental unit without a zoning variance.

    I absolutely love this. Yes, two of the bedrooms are tiny (though my bedroom as a kid until college was literally like a walk-in) and the kitchen is a galley… But it has walls, those adorable sunrooms, a big enough yard for a nice patio, and a rental unit! I would buy this.

  • It’s a solid rowhome. I agree that walls >>>>>”open floor plan,” and have never understood why flippers do that. Based on my observations of the market, it seems like the ones with walls are more sought after anyway.

    I bid on a rowhome around the corner from there but (of course) was blown out of the water. It’s a quiet part of Brookland and, contrary to what the posting says, is pushing the outer limits of “walk to metro,” especially in the winter. Walking a mile each way will get old fast. But I’m sure someone will pay this for it.

  • I live around the corner and have always liked this house — great front yard landscaping. Walk is .7 to metro and a straight shot along Newton, which is one of the nicest streets in the neighborhood.

  • If you want bullets flying by you, this is your house….
