Real Estate Watch – Brookland Homes Asking $775,000 & $549,900, Another Sells For $660,000

It’s been a little quiet on the real estate front lately, but alas, here are some interesting happenings.

We are seeing the upper reaches of Brookland’s residential market prices with this colonial style home at 1409 Kearny St, NE,  going for $775,000, but look at what you get for your money. Wowza –  a theater room, a 3-tier deck and loads of modern updates, including 2 master suites and a total of 7 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. Yes, you read that correctly. I literally gasped when I saw one of the master baths. It is the size of my bedroom. Kidding…sort of.  [An interesting note, this property is zoned C2A, which is a commercial type of zoning. This would allow low-density development, (like offices, a store or housing) up to a maximum height of 50 feet.  Update:  the listing mentions that the property is zoned C2A, which seems to be in dispute, please see the comments.] It also comes with a Certificate of Occupancy, meaning that the city of DC has approved the property for a rental unit(s). Something tells me this home is not likely to end up with a Brady Bunch family.

This nicely renovated end-unit rowhouse at 1328 Taylor St. NE just hit the market at $549,900.  I really love the brick fireplace, and the not-too-open floorplan. Very sunny and welcoming. This home has 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and off street parking.

 We have kept our eye on this gorgeous, modern house at 3201 15th St., NE, since it hit the market back in early January, first listed at $649,000. It actually caught our eye when it was on the Garden Club’s Home and Garden Tour 2 years ago, and it is a beauty. Some lucky new neighbor snagged it for $660,000.
