1742 Q St NW

This house is located at 1742 Q Street, NW. The MRIS listing says:

“Historically significant 1920’s Schneider built Dupont residence consists of 3 renovated units tastefully combining architectural details of a bygone era with today’s modern conveniences. 2 units rented for $2,500/mo = $60K annual rental income. Spacious 2 bed, 2.5 bath owner’s suite sited on top 2 floors & includes expansive terrace, Juliet balcony & bay windows. 3 car secure parking included.”


You can see more photos here.

This 4 bed/4.5 bath is going for $2,450,000.

    I think that’s really lovely – and with two income properties in addition to the owner’s suite, I’m surprised its not going for more, to be honest.

  • HillEast

    very nicely done, although even with the rental income, you’re still paying roughly 8K a month for that mortgage.

      Hmmm…I came up with 6.5K with 20% down, subtracting the rental income. Were you assuming a significantly higher interest rate given the multi-unit nature (I don’t know anything about buying multi-unit properties)? Either way, it’s a lot of coin for a 2 bed/1.5 bath to live in, even if it is stunning and in a great location.

      • JoDa

        *2.5 bath…I assume each of the rentals is 1/1, so the owner’s suite is 2/2.5.

  • Oh, this RE agent should be careful with claiming these were builtin the 1920s..they are off by a full 30 years. They were built beginning in 1891 and designed by architect Thomas Franklin Schneider. We testified in a court case once due to a RE agent claiming a house in Georgetown was built in 1830 – it was built in 1930, and by the time the new owner found out, they were less than pleased. RE agents, do your homework!

      For what it’s worth, the “year built” info in the D.C. tax records is sometimes off — I wonder if that’s what happened here.
      I think an owner is much less likely to sue over a supposedly 1920s building that was actually built in 1891 than over a supposedly 1830 Georgetown building that was actually built in 1930.
