  • What is the material the horizontal kitchen cabinets are made of? And speaking of kitchen cabinets, there are hardly any.

    • It’s just veneer on chip board. Nothing that impressive. Looks fairly nice but you can get similar finishes from Ikea.

  • Those are some distorted/stretched photos. I assume that is to make small rooms look bigger.

  • I feel like the way houses are being redone just doesn’t leave them with any character at all. It’s like there’s one company flipping each house.

  • Looks nice but think it’s overpriced for what you get. No yard or parking (unless I missed it) and it seems a significant chunk of the square footage is the basement. It sold for half the listed price pre-flip this year. Who knows, someone may love the finishings and location enough to pay that price, but it would not be a good deal.

  • Ding dong. “welcome to my kitchen”.

    • That was my first thought but this is fairly standard for flippers. I guess I am one of the few people that minds it… I live in a house that is a non-standard layout for DC – there was never a small vestibule and the door opened directly into the living room which is one my few pet peeves about he place. However, the kitchen is hidden from the front door which is much better at least to me.

      • The sad thing is that I’ve seen the same layout house on that block with the original vestibule redone really nicely. It was also opened up to the kitchen somehow, but not just totally blank space – I liked it a lot better.

    Flipper bought for $410K in April, probably put in $100K ($150K max), and is going to make a huge profit. No doubt it’ll sell, but by no stretch of the imagination a “good deal.” And I know the urban lifestyle apologists will skewer me for this one, but I can’t see paying $800K to live on Gresham between Georgia and Sherman regardless of how nice the house is.

    • I don’t know if I’m an “urban lifestyle enthusiast” but I’ve lived in CH and Petworth for 12 years and I would not pay anywhere near that much to live in that location. In fact I would try to avoid living in that location if I had money that could afford me other options.

      • Wow, I’d much rather live here than up in Petworth, and I actually like Petworth. But this neighborhood is much more walkable than much of Petworth. It’s close to Columbia Heights, U Street and Shaw restaurants, It’s an easy walk to metro and lots of buses.
        $800K is too much for anything I’d buy in this neighborhood, because I don’t want or need more than 2 or 3 bedrooms, but if you actually need 4 or 5 bedrooms then I think it’s probably a good deal.

  • I haven’t even looked at the other photos, my eyes hurt just looking at that kitchen. I don’t hate the cabinets or the floors, but together it’s just eye vomit. So much clashing. If you’re going to go with those cabinets, go with a darker wood floor.

  • What’s up with that god awful “privacy screen” on the porch? I can think of no better way to announce yourself as the obnoxious urban gentrifier who can’t even be bothered to look at his/her neighbors…

  • Why are they always grey? Does anybody actually like this color?
