This installment of Deal of the Week is in good condition, but its need for a little updating may explain the low price.

Despite the need for a few enhancements, the three-bedroom has a lot to offer: a location two blocks from the Petworth Metro, gleaming floors, original details, sizable rooms, and a backyard.

The low price reflects the home’s unmitigated aging. The kitchen and bathroom are outdated, and the house doesn’t have central A/C. However, the historic features, like the radiators and original clawfoot tub, are likely attractive to some buyers. As is the price considering that one would be hard pressed to find a three-bedroom in this area for under $400,000.

The agent tells us that the house has already received a lot of interest and that she expects to be looking at offers soon.
