“Just wondering what people’s thoughts are on this one. It’s pretty close to Trinidad, but looks gorgeous. My husband and I will be moving to DC from TN in the fall and are trying to sort out where the ok neighborhoods are (we live in Memphis, so a certain amount of crime is a given)”

The house itself looks nice but doesn’t seemed to have kept any of the original details. This house is on the market for $599,000. Does that seem like a reasonable price? What are your general impressions of the renovations as well as the location itself?
