    I dunno. The house seems nice and the description of the area is compelling. But is EOTR happening yet? I guess it had to start sometime…

      Anacostia is. This neighborhood is more suburban-like and won’t benefit from EOTR development as much.

        Suburban and that close to a metro? Sounds like it should be upzoned.

    Take a look at the neighborhood on street view. It actually looks pretty quiet and green, with homes with nice lots and lawns around there. Reminds me of some of those nice hidden mini-neighborhoods, like the area right by the Arboretum.

    It’s a bit different from my general impressions of the area right around the Aquatic Gardens, which are shaped by the housing complexes right there on Quarles and Ponds Streets NE.

      I have lived in the neighborhood for a little over a year and love it so far. The neighbors are friendly, my dogs have enough room to run around, the metro is within walking distance and I feel safe when I am home. It is definitely worth checking out this home.

    I want this. Still dont’ have enough of a down payment saved up though. By the time I do, no neighborhood will be in my price range.

      When I bought in the neighborhood I used Citi’s HomeRun program, which only requires 3% down and does not require mortgage insurance.

      I spoke to Ramsey Williams, he should be able to help you if you are interested. ([email protected])

        thank you! That is great news, I have 3%!

      Dc has great homebuyer programs if your income is below 126k. If you can’t save 3-3.5% on your own, you may want to look into them. A simple Google of dc homebuyer programs will bring them up.

        thank you! i’ve looked at them a bit but wasn’t sure if I’d qualify. I’ll look a little further.

    Interesting kitchen to living room set-up! I spent a small amount of time around the Deanwood metro station last year and I was charmed by the neighborhood.

    We love this neighborhood. We actually looked at this house and it is really pretty nice. Most of the houses on this block and surrounding blocks are really well kept up family homes. This neighborhood is a hidden jem. If you like larger houses, larger lots, and a quiet neighborhood this is a great place. It is very suburban and wouldn’t work for people who like to be close to retail areas or restaurant scenes. We moved here after 10 years on H Street and had a bit of an adjustment period but now we love the quiet feel of the area.

    The only real issues with this neighborhood is traffic. Their is pretty much one way in and one way out and it gets backed up really easy at rush hour due to the spill over from 295S. People get sick of sitting in traffic on 295 and get off on the local exits.

    Eastland Gardens literally has a garden club. An active one. That should tell you a good bit about the neighborhood.

    Seems pretty far away from any grocery stores.
