As was noted in the comments to the original Good Deal or Not post, per a Washington Post article, the subject was originally a Sears kit home and, until now, was owned by the same family since it was built in 1929.

Despite relying on street parking, the undeniably charming house sold six figures above list price. Although it may seem like every house that gets listed in Cleveland Park sells above asking, the average list to sold price ratio for that neighborhood for the 21 detached homes sold so far in 2016 is 98.09% (or slightly below list). $1,250,000. is the amount paid for the least expensive detached home in Cleveland Park in 2016, where median price is currently at $1,895,000.

While it might seem like the housing stock in this part of town is dominated by detached sales, there have been 93 condo and co-op sales in Cleveland Park so far this year. These ranged from a $195,000. studio to a $669,000. three bedroom unit.

The listing agents for this sale were Christie-Anne Weiss and Christopher Ritzert affiliated with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty. Michael Brennan, also with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, assisted the Buyer.

    So Hansel and Gretel-y! Cute!

    I went to the open house – it was certainly busy and there was some serious interest beyond just the looky-loos so I wasn’t surprised to see it sell quickly and above asking. The location is really what appeals here – the house backs up to the Tregaron Conservancy which is a beautiful piece of land attached to the Washington International School. This results in a small stream running through the backyard and a sense of living in a park while still being only a couple of blocks from Ct Ave. Inside, the house has a charm to it, although no doubt the buyers will want to add their own touches. The one issue I had with the house is it seemed a little dark inside.

    Great for the sellers, but not my cup of tea. Always got a creepy vibe from this house. I think mostly bc of the color and that it is so vastly different from all of the surrounding homes.
