When this home was on the market in 1996, it was described as “exquisite, completely renovated and restored”. At the time, it sold for $330,000. Nearly twenty years ago, the agent identified the neighborhood as “Dupont”.

I’m sure the owners at the time thought they were pretty smart for selling a mere three years later for $495,000.

The 1999 listing points out a “state-of-the-art (approx.. $20,000) stereo system wired to all rooms”. I wish there were pics of the interior from those listings but back then all you got was an exterior shot (and the agent’s enticing description, of course).

Adrienne Szabo with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. represented the seller. No buyer agent is noted
