    Yes, and yes. How many properties like this exist in Brookland? Are mortgages still affordable in this part of the city?

      The owner is a realtor

    • I still see lots of houses up there go around 400K. That’s for a detached place usually over 1,500 sqft. Most who are buying in DC would say that’s pretty affordable.

        That was the case three years ago. Now, rowhomes that need work go for closer to $450K. Detached homes are closer to $550K, and detached homes with sq footage and well renovated are more like $800K. This house on the market I would price closer to $850K or $900K if the inside matches the outside.

          ^ Agree. Perhaps in 2011 & the earlier part of 2012 you’d see cheaper prices, but currently row homes that need work are around $450K and detached that need work go for over 500K. This house is beautiful. There are several houses in this neighborhood that have gorgeous details and porches. Love.

          Sounds about right. I went into an open house for a renovated home not even as big or as nice looking as the one in the post, it was listed at $800k, and that was last summer.
          All I can say is I’m glad I bought 5 years ago.

        The craftsman bungalows that need a good bit of work might go that low, but the bungalows fixed up go for $500k-$600k. Houses like the one in the picture are hitting $800k or more.

      this and a few sister houses on Newton are definite standouts. there are some old run-down houses like this that are not on the market. lots of potential around the Brookland area.

      I suppose it depends on what you consider affordable. There’s one around the corner (1300 block of Lawrence) for sale now in the mid-500’s. HUGE house with a great yard, but appears to need plenty of work. :hint hint GDON: Renovated, I’d put this one in the high 800’s and the Lawrence St house in the low 800’s.

  • That’s really cute, love the attention to detail.

      That’s Woodridge, not Brookland.

    Brookland is a beautiful neighborhood , though they still have high crime. I’m hoping this might change…but I can’t help but think of crimes along the current retail corridor (recent CVS incident as well as the attack on Yes! Organic). I think it’s gotten better since the Murder Capitol days….but there is still work to be done.

      Every neighborhood in D.C. with reasonably-priced real estate has SOME crime. Brookland compares VERY favorably to places like Hill East, Noma, H Street and Eckington in this respect.

  • Jeff Wilson

    Well, as a resident on this block of Newton Street, NE for 16 years, I have seen the crime go way down. And, the police have been closing cases with arrests more recently too!
    And yes, this gem has been redone superbly on the inside too!!! Our annual house and garden tour reception is traditionally held at this house each year in June if you would like to have a peek!
    I think this one would be our first million dollar sale of a sfh in Brookland if it were to hit the market this spring … !
