448 M Street Northwest

This house is located at 448 M Street, Northwest. The listing says:

“In the heart of the Mount Vernon Square historic district this opportunity is bursting with potential. With an expandable footprint, this charming 4 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 half bath home is especially perfect for remodelers seeking a beautiful home to lovingly restore or builders interested in condo conversion. Two blocks from Mt Vernon Square Metro in a highly desirable location.”

This 4 bed/2 full/2 half baths is going for $999,900.

    Very interested to see what folks think on this one since it’s in my neighborhood, but I definitely don’t think the photos are giving a very good sense of the layout…

    $1 million for a semi-fixer-upper in this neighborhood?! Yikes. I would look for something needing less work for $1M… it’s also only a little too close to that unit block of M st that makes me nervous just driving through.

      Really? I’m not saying this place isn’t overpriced, but I live right near here and I have never had to go anywhere (driving or on foot) near the unit block of M Street. Between 4th and 5th, M is one way going east, but once you get to 4th, it’s one way going west. New York Avenue also cuts off M right around where 2nd Street would be… The unit block of M is a world away.

    1million? For this? In this location? No.

    There are hardly any comps – whole houses not carved up into condos hardly ever come on the market in this area. FWIW I recall a similarly-sized house in move-in similar condition selling for ~900K in Bloomingdale, and a similar-sized house in move-in ready condition (lots of original stuff, not a flip) on Capitol Hill listing for about $1.2M. I can see this being in the same ballpark as the Bloomingdale one, but can’t wrap my mind around this being only $200K less than a beautiful house in excellent condition on Capitol Hill.
