Judging Houses Getting Renovated

The great one above is located, of course, in the Forest Hills neighborhood. And a reader writes in about the Petworth Bungalow below:


“Thought you might be interested in this renovation that is going on! Since moving into the 300 block of Rock Creek Church Road, we learned that this single family, detached bugalow has been empty for a while and has been the ugly one on the block. Rumor has it that it was to be a boarding house for troubled girls, but the organizer ran out of funds. It has since been picked up by “We Buy Ugly Houses.” I spoke with the manager of their DC properties and he said it would be a beauty! Originally, the owners talked about demo-ing and trying to build a monster house. They decided against it as it was already quite sizable and they were ablet o avoid major changes to the permits (apparently, when they bought the place it came with approved plans!) Once done, it will be a 5 bedroom, 4.5 house with finished space over 3500 square feet! It was painted last week and is looking quite nice with new windows, a new roof and a new porch. This will be one to keep an eye on for a pulse on prices in the neighborhood!”

    The first one looks like a Safeway.

    I always thought the first one looked like it housed a small neighborhood swimming pool.

    The “Ugly” house at 335 Rock Creek Church St NW will be ready in a couple of weeks. It is a 4 BR 3.5 house with a full finished basement. If anyone has any questions about the house or would like to see it or have a friend who might be interested in purchasing it they can call HomeVestors at 240-403-2586 and speak with Teena or Eric. Thanks.
