I don’t know about you, but ever since Mitt Romney released his tax returns, I keep thinking about what I would do if I had that kind of cash available. I’m generally a Bloomingdale girl, but it does occasionally cross my mind that it might be fun to own a ginormous house with a hot tub on the roof deck. I also like the idea of being down the street from Teaism and I’m a Phillips Collection member, so it would be very convenient for popping in more frequently. And sometimes, as one of the commenters to the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post said, I would like to have a couch in my kitchen.

Continues after the jump.

Given the whirlwind of changes to so many neighborhoods in DC, it’s notable that Dupont pretty much looked about the same a decade ago, (well, less Sweet Green and other recent businesses.) That said, it’s also notable that in 2001, this home sold for just shy of a million dollars less than it did last month. In all of 2001, within a quarter mile radius of the subject property, there were 32 sales of fee simple homes. The average net sale price at that time was $985,353. Looking at the same radius for all of 2011, there were only 19 transfers of fee simple homes, with an average net sale price of $1,894,200. That’s some pretty healthy appreciation over a ten year period, even with a housing bubble thrown in the middle of it.

The decrease in the number of homes in this location available for sale currently is also significant, as it reflects the scarcity of supply of active inventory seen in other parts of the city, which may drive prices even further this Spring.

Per tax records, the recent seller purchased the home in 2004 for $1,900,000.
