Continues after the jump.

Boutique condo buildings, around eight units or less, are all the rage following the pre-recession exuberance for mega-buildings loaded with amenities. Located within a couple of blocks of the Columbia Heights Metro, this four unit building, listed by Roby Thompson of Long and Foster, sold out in less than two months right around the November/December holiday timeframe.

For those who like to play the “I should have bought half of DC in the ‘90’s” game (I admit that I am occasionally guilty), the entire property sold in 1998 for $110,000. For perspective, Target was not even yet the large hole in the ground that we lived with for five or so years. The building changed hands almost a year ago, in March 2010, for $750,000.
