This is not the first Good Deal or Not Revisited (GDoN-R) with a pool, although likely the first with a salt water pool.

Rarely is “swimming pool” on the must have list during initial consultations with buyer clients in Washington, DC. If it is, usually it is someone looking for a high amenity condo building with a pool, which, in other words, is a pool they don’t personally have to be responsible for.

As of this moment, there are 11 fee simple active listings with in-ground swimming pools.

For less than $1.8 Million, you can have your very own in-ground pool in Capitol Hill steps to Lincoln Park.

You’ll need to go to Wesley Heights, though, if you have to have your own pool house, too. That’s offered at just under $10 Million.

Here’s the whole list, starting at $1,250,000.

Of the 14 fee simple homes sold so far in 2018 with in-ground swimming pools, median price is $1,828,750. Median days on market is 44.

The listing agent for this transaction was Ben Puchalski with Compass (per disclosure above, the same brokerage the writer is affiliated with.) Damon Downing, with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, represented the Purchaser.
