A couple of weeks ago Good Deal or Not Revisited (GDoN-R) looked a property with a very large 4000+ square foot lot on The Hill. The typical DC rowhome sits on about a 1500-1700 square foot lot, so today’s subject property, on an 871 square foot lot, has a relatively small footprint.

Lest we forget that DC was not always populated with new construction builds, here is trip down memory lane for 443 S St NW.

September 1999: Listed for $79,000. and sold for $76,000. after being on the market for 164 days. The agent was Trip Holbrook with Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc., and his listing comments noted that “ALL WORK DONE 6-99!! (NEW ROOF AND EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE!!) ALL BRICK ROW FEATURING 3 BR AND 1.5 BATHS WITH NEWER KITCHEN (NEWER APPLIANCES ) AND BATHS. PROPERTY IS IN GOOD CONDITION AND IS BEING SOLD “AS IS” Back in the day, the multiple listing service would send a photographer to take a pic of the exterior of the house and there were no interior pics available. Here’s what it supposedly looked like then (click through). Based on the subsequent listings, it looks like the photographer took a pic of the wrong house (which was not unheard of).

Per tax records, in 2002 sold for $130,000. and then transferred in 2003 for $130,270.

In 2011, the house was offered, in its gutted condition, for $334,900. with no takers after 161 days. You can see pre-renovation pics here.

Per tax records, in 2014: Sold to developer for $411,000. preceding the sale detailed above.

The listing agent was Justin Paulhamus of M Squared Real Estate, LLC. Bertha Jaramillo of Home-Pro Realty, Inc. represented the buyer in this transaction.
