631 F Street Northeast

This house is located at 631 F Street, Northeast. The listing says:

“A Beast, steps east, of Union Stations’ crescent, a cerebrally pleasant antidepressant of organized light, super-sized living, recognized builder, agonized detail, customized simplicity prevails. Your part? Remove arrow from heart, live largely in art, framed by location, so close your vocation, seat of the nation, via feet on the street, home early to eat. A cool retreat in the center of the sun.”

Yes it’s a Faison.

This 4 bed/3.5 bath is going for $1,345,000.

    I don’t know if it is a good deal but I like that it has the island with seating and another counter with seating.

      I have the same thing in my home as well as the extra family room to the back. I love having that space to the back in addition to the more formal living room up in the front. My home is 60ft deep so it allows for this comfortable.

    don’t know about deal, but this is a nice reno. Good choices throughout. Basement can be readily adapted and I’d imagine they already got the CoO before opening the staircase?

    I think you should have a special Faison tag, so when we want to lose our minds we can read them all back-to-back.

    Would be really displeased with my realtor if this was the come on they wrote up for me given what their commission will be…. jesus, rhyme time? really?

      Faison knows how to sell properties. It seems ridiculous at first glance but trust me it works.

        I’ve always wondered what special skill it takes to sell a place like this on the Hill. A cleaning crew, staging company (both paid for by seller), a few decent photographs, and a membership with the MLS. Miss anything? Don’t these places sell themselves? It’s not Hagerstown.

          You nailed it. Faison himself admitted that the listing text makes absolutely no difference to the eventual buyers. Nevertheless, he’s particularly successful in getting his name out as a result.

      Not when your realtor is known for such listings. I can say he does a good bit of sale over in these parts of town.

        He, and the Smith brothers who are also wacky.

    • Almost all of his properties are gut jobs that get the same renovation treatment. He’s rarely representing a “client” so much as he is his own business.

    Already pending, at least according to Redfin.

    The prose makes my eyeballs bleed and my brain hurt.
