    Yeah, but who wants to make that walk?

      No man’s land. That’s an interesting corner of the city.

      • Jerry Grundle

        So basically it’s kind of stabby.

  • Philippe Lecheval

    I appreciate their honesty. Most other listings would’ve said “Just steps away from H Street!”

  • You might as well say 8 hour drive to Boston.

  • Eric

    I live on this block. It’s just fine and is a quick and nice walk to H Street.

    Due to its proximity to the arboretum it would be funny if they had put area pictures in the listing, such as the bonsai pavilion and koi pond where you can buy pellets and feed the koi.

    This place is also for sale, “2 condos for the price of 1”:

      How the ‘eff did they flip this place in one month? The building sold for $265K on Dec 31 and now they want $569K. WTF?

        I’m not sure how up to date the info on the listing is, but it seems like maybe they’re still in the process of finishing the reno – “write contract & select final options, colors”? But yeah, crazy especially since it looks like all new everything (at least on the surface).

          The crew has been at it nonstop since the place sold, but it’s not done yet. Drywall went up recently and the exterior paint just this past weekend. No appliances or anything beyond that.

    I’d say that’s a fair price for BOTH floors of this dinky 2-unit combined. Photos won’t load right for me (I can see just the thumbnails), but I’ll bet one of the two “bedrooms” has no window.

    Looks terrible. Sorry. I don’t know how you’d squeeze 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and the reasonably sized livingroom/kitchen onto one floor of this house.

    Come to Petworth.

      Trust me, you don’t want the photos to load. Blurry bedroom, part of a the bathroom and an odd corner. Lazy.

    It will be funny when transplants move into this place and meet their new neighbor Marty McStabbin.
