A Five-Figure Premium for a Pair of Park-Proximal Properties
This week’s edition of Above Asking revisits two recently-featured listings near two Northeast "Parks" that each sold for five figures above asking price.
A $93,000 Premium Near Kingman Park
Just on the edge of the Rosedale pocket-neighborhood near Kingman Park, this turn-of-the-century rowhouse on Tennessee Avenue sold recently for $93,000 above asking. Past the front patio and the tiled-floor entry vestibule, there is a weathered brick accent wall along the hall and up the stairs. The living room has a tripartite bay window and an angled fireplace, with the latter feature repeated in the adjacent dining area. The U-shaped kitchen has patterned black-and-white floors, white subway tile walls, and a concealed hood above the oven. The owner's bedroom also has a bay window and nearly a full wall of closets, and the shared full bath has recessed shelves, rectangular marble-tiled walls, and black honeycomb-tiled floors. The house also has an unfinished basement, a fenced-in rear brick patio, and a firewood shed.
