  • Your Hand

    Special needs house is more like it.

    Drop a 7, and we’ll chat.

  • Papers Please

    I don’t dig the caps lock.

    • Jesus

      I agree.

      I would never buy a house advertised with all caps, mit serifs, or in comic sans.

      • Anonymous

        i don’t think the all caps convey.

        You’ll probably never buy a house, anyway.

    • BrennaLM

      HAHA came here to say this. Is there a way to send a small electric shock through a keyboard if more than, say, 40 letters are typed with the capslock on?

    • ET

      My ears are bleeding with all the shouting.

      I never understand why they do that. In stead of drawing attention so that people read about the property it actually makes it harder to read the description.

      And I have to say for house for sale for over $2 million those pictures are pathetic. Their realtor isn’t doing them any favors for that commission.

  • MichelleRD

    Wait, it sold for less than a milion in 2007 and now it nearly $2.5? With only 3 interior photos?

      “REMODELED & EXPANDED IN 2007/2008 BY AWARD WINNING ARCHITECT”

      I don’t mean to shout.

      • MichelleRD

        Right. For 1.5 in improvements, you’d think they be more interested in showing the results.

  • Anonymous

    We don’t get to see what the bedrooms look line? Lame.

    • Jesus

      What happens in the bedroom stays in the bedroom. Including the photos of the bedroom.

  • MK

    Bed, bath and all other rooms are shown on the other VT Link 1.

    Uh, you know there isn’t a hospital bar, Mother

    • greent

      Well, this is why people hate hospitals.

  • Devoe

    You did notice there is access to BOTH AIRPORTS, right? No other location in town can claim that (think they mean IAD or BWI in addition to DCA?).

    They will definitely get this price.

    • Jesus

      WITHIN TWO DAYS DRIVE OF OVER 100 AIRPORTS!

  • DCDave05

    The listing agent seems to have been a tad lazy in the photograph department. I’d expect more effort for a $2.45 million listing.

  • herewegoagain

    It’s humungous, with an awesome looking kitchen. But does it remind anyone else of the “after” renovation in Beetle Juice?

    • Itchy Balls

      I’m totally going to smoke a blunt and rewatch that tonight.

  • The Countess

    Money can’t buy you class…

    • Trueblue

      Elegance is learned, my friend.

  • Lindsey

    What the heck is with the 3 rugs under the table in the kitchen?

    I drive by this house two and from work everyday, and it sticks out like a sore thumb. Sat on the market FOREVER before it was bought and renoed–it was ugly before, and now boasts 50% more ugly!

    • Itchy Balls

      NOW WITH 50% MORE ASS! GET BEHIND IT!
