Deal of the Week: Recently Renovated Near 11th and T

Deal of the Week: Recently Renovated Near 11th and T: Figure 1

This installment of Deal of the Week is a renovated row house in one of the city’s most appealing neighborhoods.

The three-bedroom house just south of the U Street Metro near 11th and T Street is fresh from a renovation. The home is now comfortable and solid, though not too fancy. While narrow, it has a 1,480-square foot floorplan with a dining room that shares a space with the kitchen, and double glass doors that open up to a large stone patio. Built-ins in the kitchen and living room and a storage area under the stairs free up floor space.

Similarly-sized homes in the area are fetching about $50,000 more than this listing is asking and $436 a square foot is below-market rate in the neighborhood. Both of these factors are resulting in helping garner attention, and the agent tells UrbanTurf that she is expecting offers in the coming days.

More details and photos below.

    I saw this house this weekend -- no way was this a full gut renovation. I would say only the kitchen has ever gotten a full gut job. Nice(ish) and obviously has had work done to it, but it still needs a lot of work.

    Agreed. We went to the open house. *Definitely* not a full gut renovation. The door frames are from the early 1900s at best and some of the doors don't even close. There are gaps in the stairs. There was a bonus room added, which is new. But the core rooms don't even seem like they've been renovated in the past decade. Does UrbanTurf verify these claims before posting?

    I also saw and agree.  There's a lot of strange things in the house: adding to the list are the uneven and inconsistent floors, windows that are not correctly sized, and a noticeable crack on the back of the house coming from the "bonus room," suggesting settlement.  Not sure it is deal worthy, honestly.  As well as it photographs, it needs work.

    Yeah, the house was strange. It was interesting because the patio and kitchen were well done but other aspects in the house were truly odd. (@John I noticed the crack as well.) Because of the location, I would say it's a good deal at the current list price, perhaps slightly above. But if it goes for much more it's really not a good deal. There's alot for the new owners to take on. Also, only one full bath that is very cramped and far from the master.

    That block needs work. I saw an epic full gut underway across the street with all the windows kicked out.

    No scope for adding another full bath. Especially needed because of how puny/awkward the one full bath is. Will limit future appreciation.
