For those who were speculating in the comments of the original GDoN post, this gut renovated detached home with no parking finished out at just over one and a half million dollars.

One year ago, LeDroit Park had a 5200 square foot detached home with two carriage houses (and parking for six cars) sell for net $2,335,000. The next highest sale ever for a residential property in the neighborhood was at $1,675,000. in July 2016…again a very large detached property, large lot, all brick, four fireplaces, parking.

The subject property is the next highest recent sale in the neighborhood.

Currently, in LeDroit Park and neighboring north Bloomingdale (above Rhode Island Ave, which shares the legal subdivision with LeDroit Park), there are five active listings over $1 million, and seven under contract. There have already been 10 seven figure settlements in the neighborhoods so far this year.

The median net price for the first quarter of 2017 for fee simple houses in LeDroit Park and North Bloomingdale is $1,035,000. The median net price for Q1 2016 was $840,000.

The listing agent for this property was Barak Sky with Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc. Michael Alderfer, with Redfin Corp, assisted the Buyer.
