    Great deal. This is one of the best blocks in petworth and the yards are fantastic.

  • I’ve admired that house from the outside while walking my dogs, but never imagined the inside would be finished so nicely and the backyard would be so massive.

    Great deal!

  • Terrific deal. Close to Grant Circle. I bet it went over listing.

    I love this house.

    Beautiful job. I agree, great deal and it went a little above list.

      edit: left out “I bet” before “it went above list.” No insider knowledge here….

    I live on this block, very happy to see it go so fast. Amazing how the market there has rebounded. We got our craftsman for $370k back in 09, a month later the house next door went for $435, a year or two later the house across the street went for $520, and now this. I heard before the crash they were going for $650k. Sad to see these great neighbors go though, loved watching them out in the back yard with their family enjoying the sunday sun!

    I’m sure this went for over list. The only drawbacks are the two bathrooms, lack of separate entrance to the basement (I think), and probably, not a lot of closet space. But other than that, I like everything about it. It’s a great block and a great location.

    The “States Diamond” (bounded by Georgia, New Hampshire, Illinois, and Kansas Avenues) seems to have homes sell very quickly.
