A couple of weeks ago Good Deal or Not Revisited (GDoN-R) looked a property with a very large 4000+ square foot lot on The Hill. The typical DC rowhome sits on about a 1500-1700 square foot lot, so today’s subject property, on an 871 square foot lot, has a relatively small footprint.

Lest we forget that DC was not always populated with new construction builds, here is trip down memory lane for 443 S St NW.

September 1999: Listed for $79,000. and sold for $76,000. after being on the market for 164 days. The agent was Trip Holbrook with Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc., and his listing comments noted that “ALL WORK DONE 6-99!! (NEW ROOF AND EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE!!) ALL BRICK ROW FEATURING 3 BR AND 1.5 BATHS WITH NEWER KITCHEN (NEWER APPLIANCES ) AND BATHS. PROPERTY IS IN GOOD CONDITION AND IS BEING SOLD “AS IS” Back in the day, the multiple listing service would send a photographer to take a pic of the exterior of the house and there were no interior pics available. Here’s what it supposedly looked like then (click through). Based on the subsequent listings, it looks like the photographer took a pic of the wrong house (which was not unheard of).

Per tax records, in 2002 sold for $130,000. and then transferred in 2003 for $130,270.

In 2011, the house was offered, in its gutted condition, for $334,900. with no takers after 161 days. You can see pre-renovation pics here.

Per tax records, in 2014: Sold to developer for $411,000. preceding the sale detailed above.

The listing agent was Justin Paulhamus of M Squared Real Estate, LLC. Bertha Jaramillo of Home-Pro Realty, Inc. represented the buyer in this transaction.

From the Library of Congress:

“We hustled the reel up to the film lab where it was prepped and cleaned for Datacine Operator Pat Kennedy to make the digital transfer; we’re photochemically preserving it on safety film stock as well. After the Senators story was excerpted and speed-corrected, I sent it pianist/Nats fan Andrew Simpson for musical scoring. Perhaps more footage will eventually turn up, but for now we’re thrilled to present the 1924 World Series champion Washington Senators in hopes that what’s past truly is prologue.


#InnerCityHues: Marvin Gaye Mural by Aniekan Udofia from 1st Impressions on Vimeo.

“On September 1st, 2013, we created 4 murals in Washington DC as a part of the Heineken Mural Project. Unfortunately, on September 1st, 2014, the original Marvin Gaye Mural @ 7th and S Street NW was covered by the construction of a new home. With the support of Shaw Main Streets Executive Director Alexander M. Padro, and donations from local residents and business owners, we were able to produce a NEW Marvin Gaye mural directly across the street from the OLD one just in time for Art All Night DC 2014.

11th and M St, NW

Ed. Note: The building home to the laundromat at 11th and M St, NW pictured above went for sale for $2,999,000 in 2012. Will update when we find the exact location for the future Phonation restaurant.

@catiecat tweets us the big news:

“@PoPville my fave food truck @DCphonation told me they are opening a real restaurant at 11&M, maybe by end of year! #Awesome #BahnMis”

Check out DC Phonation’s menu here.

Their website also says:

“Phonation was created with an innovated vision where Rachel hopes to unite people through the famous and authentic taste of Vietnamese cuisine: pho and banh-mi. The menu also features a Mexican and Vietnamese fusion cuisine called the Burrito-Banh-mi that was inspired by a former employee. All that tasty freshness originally found in the famous BBQ pork and chicken banh-mi can now be savored in a simple tortilla.”

Any other fans?

From MPD:

“Good afternoon, today, Third District members working in a covert capacity were able to apprehend and arrest two suspects for stealing packages at two different locations. In the first incident, officers observed a suspect in the vicinity of the 1200 block of S Street, N.W. This suspect was riding a bicycle and carrying a box believed to be stolen. An investigation revealed that the recovered items were, in fact, stolen and the suspect was arrested and the property recovered.

In the second instance, a suspect was observed in the vicinity of the 1600 block of Florida Avenue, N.W. carrying two large packages believed to be stolen. When approached by officers, the suspect admitted to stealing the packages and was placed under arrest.

In both of these incidents, officers were addressing increased reports of package thefts and they were knowledgeable of theft patterns and suspect descriptions previously provided by citizens. As always, the MPD appreciates the community’s support and we ask that you remain vigilant. Thank you.”
