    Looks alright, but silly RE description, “Enjoy dinner preparation…” edition. Is this really 16th Street Heights? I was thinking it is more Petworth. Anyway, does anyone find the under porch/house exterior spaces useful, to really store things? Seems ripe for attracting rodents and other pests.

    • We use a similar space for storage. Think about stuff a surburbanite would store in a shed like a shovel, plastic pool, chairs out of season, etc.

  • I think this is probably a decent deal, and I believe it qualifies as 16th St Heights since it’s west of Georgia, which I think is the boundary.

    I wish the back of the house were set up so that it allowed more light. The window in the kitchen is rather small.

    It’s a ways from the metro and close to Georgia but will probably fetch this price.

    I know most people love open concepts but I can’t believe that I am the only one who wouldn’t someone to see my kitchen from the front door.

  • Interesting place. I’d like a little more finish on it at that price like a parking pad in the back, a seating area and fence. There are a lot of good buying opportunities in that area along Georgia Avenue which will surge in value after the Wal Mart is completed, and when Georgia avenue stores start renovating (About 2-3 years away). I’m more into the idea of a fixer upper around $320k but this is a fairly good opportunity for a homeowner who doesn’t want to have to renovate, yet will have money left over after financing to add more to the house. I’d price it around $478k at this point though.

  • Good deal. I live on the other side of Georgia from this, and flips are starting to go at around the same price point over here. It’s not close to metro, but it’s a 5 min walk to the 50 lines down 14th or a 1 min walk to the 70 line, so it’s actually really easy to get around transit wise.

    This is the only small strip of rowhomes on Ingraham west of Georgia before it gives way to really nice (and expensive) single family homes, and several on this block have been recently renovated, so my guess is that it’ll appreciate nicely.

    Hate flips. They get rid of the the things that make an older house attractive – real bath tubs, plaster walls and wood doors that actually block sound, walls so that you don’t have to keep your kitchen pristine….
