“Dear PoP,

Can you ask your readers if anyone knows what happened to this clearly once gorgeous old house in Mt. Pleasant? I fantasize about the idea of buying a house like this and renovating it to bring it back to its former glory but with that kind of water damage I am sure it would be beyond me.”

Any ideas of what could have caused this damage? You can see more photos here. This home at 1819 Monroe St, NW is on the market for $599,000 think that sounds reasonable given the complete renovations needed?
