Brookland is a NE DC neighborhood known for large yards and an abundance of fee simple properties including rowhomes like the subject property, as well as detached farm houses and bungalows. The main commercial area is 12th Street NE, near Metro, with several recent and ongoing development projects in the vicinity.

Commenters to the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post called this one. Several folks predicted that it would sell above list. One person even noted that their agent said to “expect it to go for $575,000.”

As with other neighborhoods in DC, Brookland is experiencing a very tight market for active listing inventory. Stats from Real Estate Business Intelligence (RBI) show that in February 2015, there were about half the number of homes listed as compared to the five year average for the month of February. With less than one months supply of inventory (a balanced market is generally considered a six month absorption rate), Brookland is definitely a sellers market right now.

There are currently a total of 18 fee simpleactive listings in Brookland, ranging from $284,900. to over $1 million.

The listing agent for this sale was Shelley Gold with Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc. Susan McNeill with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer in this transaction.

8th and Monroe Street, NE

“Two of D.C.’s favorite pastimes, coffee and bicycles, are coming together in the historic Brookland neighborhood under one roof on April 18. The Bike Rack and Filter Coffeehouse are excited to be part of the growing community at the Monroe Street Market.

The April 18 Grand Opening will be held in conjunction with the first Brookland Farmer’s Market of 2015.

The concept of the bike/coffee shop began in bike-centric cities such as Portland and San Francisco, and The Bike Rack and Filter Coffeehouse owners Chuck Harney and Rasheed Jabr knew it was a concept that both DC and the Brookland neighborhood would embrace.

“Bikes and coffee just go together, ask any cyclist,” said Harney. “ We feel that a bike shop
should be a community gathering spot for the local community and for cyclists. A coffee bar
helps to create that feel year round.”

The two businesses will share space under one roof within the Brookland Works building at 716 Monroe St. NE. The Bike Rack will be open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Filter Coffeehouse will be open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“It’s location is perfect because it is directly on the Metropolitan Branch Trail and next to the Brookland Metro. It’s easily accessible to everyone, cyclists and non-cyclists,” Jabr said.

Filter Coffeehouse will offer the range of Ceremony Coffee brews popular at its current Dupont Circle and Foggy Bottom locations. There will be indoor seating as well as outdoor seating adjacent to the Monroe Street Market Arts Walk.

The Bike Rack will offer the same award-winning services offered at its current Logan Circle location including:
• Bicycle, accessories and apparel sales
• Maintenance and bike fits
• Classes and events

The April 18 Grand Opening will be held in conjunction with the first Brookland Farmers Market of the 2015 season, which runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine, 716 Monroe St. NE. In addition to welcoming neighbors and biking/coffee enthusiasts in for the first time, The Bike Rack will offer free basic bike maintenance on the Arts Walk.”

“This guy parks here a lot. On John McCormack Dr. just north of Michigan Ave, right in front of Catholic U Metro. As you can see, when he/she is parked there (sitting in the car, btw, blatant “No Parking” on that whole side of the street) it is impossible for traffic to get through in both directions. It was all backed up behind me onto Michigan.”
