    Good looking house for what seems like a solid price, but the owners really should’ve rented a storage locker for their oversized, out-of-place furniture. It’s not doing them any favors. (Though at that price, it might not really matter.)

  • That’s certainly an interesting take on “heart of the corridor”, but it seems like a fairly decent house.

    • CT

      It’s like 2 blocks from 10th and H, which is pretty much the midpoint of the H St corridor. Seems like a fairly spot-on description.

        just like he lives in Cap Hill- though it’s on the last block of the cap hill boundary.

      • 1) it’s more like 3 blocks than 2, but more importantly 2) considering there’s basically nothing for a couple blocks once you get to H from here i would say it might be centrally located, but more of the groin than the heart.

          Hey now, some folks are into that sorta thing ;-)

          Not sure it’s fair to say there is “nothing for a couple of blocks”. The 1000 block has at least three bars and the 1100 block has some of the most popular places on the strip (Miss Whiskey’s, Copycat). Though I would concede that the “heart” is the 1200 and 1300 blocks.

          • I love LMW and CopyCat, so bad on me for forgetting them.

    No picture of the 3rd bedroom makes me think it’s probably more of a closet, and it seems weird that just 1 room has a window a/c unit.

      Also loving the large screen tv in the dining room…

        Its about to be football season, cant miss the game while you are eating lol

    …and the chest freezer in the dining room.

      And the exercise machine in the living room.

  • jumpingjack

    This place is an excellent candidate for staging.

    • textdoc

      +1. I suspect (hope?) that it’s currently being rented out, possibly as a group house.

  • TropicBird

    Great price
    Yeah that furniture does look like it was trucked in from a mini-mansion out in Fairfax or something
    Heart of H Street corridor sounds a lot better than “inches from Trinidad”

  • Andie302

    My teammate listed this and it sounds like there was A LOT more stuff a month or so ago – this is paired wayyyyy down! I wish I had a buyer for this, because I think it’s a pretty solid value at this price.

      Is this is full house or a condo? The listing has the address as “1020 10th Street Northeast 1.” That and the price make me think it’s a condo but it’s hard to tell.

      • Anon

        I’m almost 99.9% sure it’s not a condo. For whatever reason our similar home one block away is also listed in DC records (and has been for 12 years) as a condo. We don’t, though, list our address the way it is listed here. I don’t believe that house has multiple units. That block is also relatively quiet, and there’s a traffic calming thing on Florida that somewhat eases the one way traffic going south. Once the condos go into the H St Connection, I’d call the 900-1000 blocks of H the slumber party of H? I’d say the catch is you have to update it.

      • Andie302

        It’s the full house and has a basement

  • Anon

    Seems underpriced. What’s the catch?

    • SF

      The catch is you just have to bid against multiple other offers, driving the price up. There are no deals in this market, only invitations to compete.

    • anon

      I wouldn’t be too surprised if it goes to an all-cash, no contingency developer offer…so the catch is, it’s out of bounds for regular people looking at this price

    • Kojo

      Yes, it’s definitely under priced. RE agent is trying to get multiple offers N bidding.

  • soozles

    I question whether that’s 1872 sq ft. That seems really large, and this house seems like it is too narrow for that.
