“Rare opportunity! Beautiful turn of the century Bloomingdale home.

Updated kitchen with silestone counters, finished basement with built-in cabinets, slate front porch, back deck, patio and garage. Great curb appeal!”

This 3 bed/2 bath is going for $745,000. I’d also be remiss to not share the spectacular vestibule…

    This will end up going for $800+

    I covet the vestibule….. my front door opens directly into the living room (part of the original layout and not some flipper’s open concept laziness) and that is one my pet peeve. I cannot stand that anyone looking in when the door is open can literally see everything in my living room and into my dining room.

  • Good deal!

  • hungeegirl

    this will go for a billion dollars over asking.

      Maybe. Unfortunately, right now this is right on top of a HUGE construction pit for the First Street Tunnel. Not that it *should* affect sales price, but it’s really hard to picture the property without that massive inconvenience, even though it is supposed to be done in a few months.

        Most of the DC Water work should be completed by July and given the current market, I really don’t think it will affect any potential buyers. Plus, this is around the corner from McMillan, which is in itself a draw, albeit that’s more construction to worry about. It’s a lovely home – and rare too – one that hasn’t been flipped by developers but just looks like it’s been well-cared for by previous owners.

    Some staging would’ve helped — much of the artwork is distracting, and so are some of the rugs and at least one of the bedspreads — but this seems like a good deal. I imagine it will go over asking.

      i actually rather like it. maybe not my personal choice, but it feels warm and lived it, and conveys a sense of character that a $5,000 staging job of pottery barn furniture and cold shaped art wouldn’t. agreed this place goes over – 815 is my guess.

    What a great house. And I love a good vestibule! I hate open floor plans where the front door opens right into the living room. It gets so drafty, not to mention lack of space for jackets, coats, shoes, umbrellas, hats, etc.

  • Anonomnom

    I love the features on this house, and I can tell I would like whoever the current owner was. Not my style, but whoever loves so much funky colors must be a joyful person.

  • TropicBird

    Lovely woodwork, as the owner of a Petworth house where all the original trim was painted over I am loving the wood finishes. I also like the bright colors and character of the owner’s decor.

    Is there a chunk of the porch trim (soffit?) missing in that photo of the exterior?
    I didn’t notice it when I looked before, probably because otherwise the house looks gorgeous in that pic.
