1351 Kennedy Street Northwest

This house is located at 1351 Kennedy Street, Northwest:


The listing says:

“16th Street Heights Beauty! 4/3.5 beds/baths. Gorgeous, fully-renovated semi-detached home has amazing curb appeal, stunning wood floors, gourmet kitchen, spacious living room, spacious bedrooms, stunning master suite, and full lower-level in-law suite. Backyard with detached 1-car garage.”

You can see a virtual tour here.

This 4 bed/3.5 bath is going for $699,999.

  • Looks decent inside, but that’s definitely not “amazing curb appeal”. It’s one bush and all grass inside a fence.

    Was bought in late May for $400K. Looks like they dropped in $50-75K worth of cosmetic updates. And now they want $700K. BTW, the house is only 1300 sq ft. So they didn’t even do any real structural renovations to the space (same original small room layout). $522/foot is crazy.
    Bad deal.

    More like “needs amazing curb appeal”. Do they even know what that term means?

    I clicked on the “virtual tour” link but am seeing only one photo… is it working for others??

      Look at the PoPville listing for the photos. The virtual tour has only one photo.

    “Curb appeal” feels like a cruel joke when looking at the way the white picket fence paint was carelessly sprayed on everything under the fence. And no love at all for the back yard? Just carted the dumpster away and left it as is.

    Not a good deal. If you’ve got the extra funds required to spruce up the exterior, you can afford something more finished.
