Update for 12/27/2013. Nary a change. Happy New Year, all!
All the homes in this article are currently for sale within Shepherd Park, DC. The top of the list features the newest listings, while the bottom showcases those that have been on the market longer. We will be updating this post every Friday, so be sure to check back to see what’s new, what’s gone, & what might be coming (and check out the date up top… if it’s not current, neither is this information!). Shepherd Park is a place fraught with DC history. It’s filled with a variety of eclectic architecture, ranging from 1950s contemporaries and stately colonials along 16th Street to historic catalog or mail-order (“kit”) homes. With the redevelopment of the former Walter Reed Medical Center, there will be much exciting change to come in the years ahead, including a new streetcar line! We have taken the time to inject our opinion on the condition, pricing, and likelihood of each property selling… or not. Please give us a call if anything should pique your interest.
7615 16th St NW, $1,299,000
Our initial impression was not to like this house. The front door seemed wrong, and we didn’t like the shutters. However, once we got inside, there was much to be admired. Lovely, open floor plan. Large foyer with sweeping stairway. Lots of sunshine. Fabulous basement. Large, level yard with parking for a crowd. Listed with Watassa Management. Days on Market: 49[space]
1412 Leegate Rd NW, $675,000
There is no denying that one gets a lot of house here. The layout is a little odd, however. There are supposedly 4 bedrooms on the main level. That effectively eliminates a dining room. The kitchen and LR are on complete opposite sides of the house. You could house several pool tables in the basement… it’s that big! Needs some TLC. Heat was off when we visited. Bring your mittens. Listed with Long & Foster. Days on Market: 57[space]
1120 Geranium St NW, $684,900
A nicely renovated 4BR/3FB/2HB brick colonial just steps from Metro. It’s not your cookie cutter Home Depot renovation, either. This one has some personality and plenty of charm. Kitchen is lovely. Nice family room at the back of the house. Only missing ingredient is landscaping… it could use some! Listed with Long & Foster. Days on Market: 64[space]
1129 Kalmia Rd NW, $685,000
Brick colonial with a nice 1-story addition on the main level. Renovated kitchen. Family room opening to back yard. Pretty hardwoods. Just off of Georgia. Listed with Matrix Realty. Recent $14K price reduction. Days on Market: 80[space]
