Located east of Rock Creek Park between Piney Branch Road and Georgia Ave NW, this renovated detached home started with an ambitious list price of $1,500,000. Commenters to the original GDoN post were skeptical. The home ultimately sold at 82% of original list price.

16th Street Heights, which is known for large detached single family homes, saw the first seven figure sale in 2003. Since that time, the regional multiple listing service reports a total of 33 transactions over a million dollars. As of April 2016, the median sales price for detached homes in the neighborhood was $1,185,000. That number can fluctuate quite a bit (for example, median sales price for detached homes was $862,500. in March, and $1,115,000. in January).

The listing agent for this sale was Kelvin Reaves with Re/Max Allegiance. Tom Buerger, also with Re/Max Allegiance represented the Buyer.
