PoPville original commenters to last week’s GDoN Revisited were completely on target with the expectation that the H Street area property would escalate above list price. The ultimate price of today’s subject historic property, a stone’s throw from the Library of Congress, will likely surprise a lot of people.
The property is situated on an over 4000 square foot lot, which is zoned R-4 and located in a designated historic district. The unconfirmed assumption is that the property has been acquired by a developer. This was the largest lot size recently transferred on Capitol Hill. Two properties with lots over 3000 square feet have settled on Capitol Hill since the beginning of the year.
Here are some news clippings referencing the property going back to the 1930’s, courtesy of a blog called “A Street SE: The History of a Capitol Hill Street”.
The listing agent was Betty Gee of Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. Phyllis Jane Young of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer in this transaction.
