Tax records indicate that 1517 Church St NW was a single family rowhome when it was purchased in 2004 by the developer for $750,000. It was renovated into three condo units, including the subject property, which occupies the top two floors and roof deck. There are two deeded parking spaces for the building.

When this unit first sold in 2006, it settled for a purchase price of $1,300,000. Although that year marked what many real estate agents recall as the beginning of the burst (or at least a slow leak in some neighborhoods) of the real estate price bubble, there were three other condos in the immediate area (within .25 of a mile of the subject) that also sold that year over one million dollars.

So far in 2013, there have already been nine condo units in the neighborhood (including the subject property) that have transferred in the seven figures. This was the second highest price so far this year. A penthouse unit recently sold at the Cooper Lewis at the corner of P and 14th St NW for $1,550,000.

The listing agent was Chuck Holzwarth, Jr. of Washington Fine Properties. Martin Toews of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer.
