“Mott’s Market on the market”

233 12th Street, SE

Thanks to Sean for sending the latest on Mott’s Market. The listing for $1,250,000 says:

“Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase beloved Mott’s Market. A wide and large semi-detached rowhome that is prominently on the corner of Gessford Court and overlooking Walter Street – all just steps from Lincoln Park and Eastern Market in the heart of Capitol Hill. Purpose-built in 1916 as a store and second-floor home for Samuel Gotkin, the site appears to have been a corner store for over a century and became Mott’s Market in 1969. It is zoned RF-1 with a commercial use code of 042-Store-Miscallenous and currently has a Retail – Grocery B license from the DC Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration.

The building consists of 2,613 SF above grade plus a partial basement that is approximately 750SF with an interior staircase and front exterior access. The main floor features a large store, a storage room, and another stock room with a walk-in industrial freezer. The unfinished basement has a concrete floor, a full bath, and utilities. The lot is larger than most Capitol Hill lots: 2350 SF corner lot that backs to historic Gessford Court with wide bricked alleys and coveted alley homes.

The separately metered bright and cheery apartment on the 2nd floor features 3 bedrooms (or 2 bedrooms + den – one bedroom is accessed through another) with open kitchen and living space and a full bath. This apartment is accessed from Gessford Court.

Buy and live in the apartment while you renovate, keep as a store or commercial first floor, make into two residential units, build on or expand – the opportunity here is multi-faceted and rarely available. Call for more details!”
