Ok, folks were a bit disappointed with yesterday’s GDoN but check out the pictures on this house. I’m not a huge fan of the staircase but otherwise this seems like a really nice reno. I also like this block because it is really close to Rock Creek Parkway. I guess one of the drawbacks is that it is not super close to a metro. It’s been on the market for 117 days and the asking price is $649,000. To me that doesn’t seem insane for a nice reno. What do you think it can actually sell for? What do you think of the renovation itself?
