I’ve been working on a listing in Crestwood since early Spring (currently under contract), and I have to say that I am surprised that more buyers on the hunt for a detached single family house do not include Crestwood in their searches. Sandwiched between Rock Creek Park and 16th Street NW, Crestwood is an enclave of handsome and often unique properties surrounded by parkland, yet with easy access to downtown. Recent sales in Crestwood have included the house built by Giant Foods powerhouse Izzy Cohen, as well as the home that the prolific Crestwood developer, Paul Stone, built for himself in 1938. Those listings can be seen here.
Continues after the jump.
Prices for detached single family homes in Crestwood sold since the beginning of 2010 have ranged from $420,000. (for a fixer upper) to $1,300,000. for the Paul Stone house. The subject of this Good Deal or Not Revisited (GDoN-R) sold for just a tad over the median price of $783,300. A commenter on the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post suggested that this particular home had been “bought and sold three times in the last 4 years”. There were no previous listings in the multiple listing system and the tax record does not show any recent transfers.
