Thanks to a reader for sending in this link for the house for sale at 1309 Kenyon Street. I have walked by this house a million times and always stop to admire it and its incredible porch. I’ve always thought this was one of the nicest houses I’ve passed in Columbia Heights. Now what makes this the fantasy edition is that the price is $1,299,000.

The listing says “incredible spectacular one of a kind detached home beautifully renovated w original well preserved woodwrk main house has 5 bdrms 3 1 2 ba 3br 2 f bath legal apartment in lower level sunny rented 2500 month”.

So this is way out of my price range but just out of curiosity – a house this big, in such a great location – is it a good deal or not?
