    Nice looking place, but the way things are going in Cap Hill/DC…you better be prepared to put some bars on those first floor windows and door (back yard).

      In Streetview, there are bars on all the windows on the street side of the brick wall. Those don’t seem to be there in the listing photos, though.

    Love this little block and I’ve always wondered how much these houses go for. Nice place!

    are these market rate? it’s part of a Hope VI mixed income development with many subsidized units (with a sliding scale and set %s). Not sure what limits/restrictions that entails but it likely explains the low asking price.

      a 2br for 750k is low?

      • Accountering

        I would say that yes, $750K for a 2/2.5 less than a half mile from Eastern Market is quite low.

        sadly it is a low price for location and property

    • Honey Badger

      Some (all?) of the subsidized units are rentals more or less. There’s a down payment involved that you get back, but you don’t have the right to sell your unit. Does anyone know if the owned homes are part of the Hope VI development?

        This is a fee simple home that sits on the coop property. So no income restrictions. They own the home but do pay a fee to the coop for snow removal, property/parking maintenance, access to the community center, etc. The house a few doors down just sold a couple of months ago at a similar price, but this one’s nicer.

    I used to live in this development. It’s a beautiful, quiet street. Bonus, they have extra soundproofing and you never hear your neighbor, ever! The majority are Hope VI rentals (except they don’t call them rentals) and a few were built to be sold. This one, if I remember, was built to be sold.
