Listing Description

Why Below market?  While prepping the house we discovered a structural flaw.  We have a report on the condition from a home inspector, architectural plans that show how to correct it, a thorough estimate of the cost and even the DC permit.  The sellers are an older couple that would rather not do the work.  The cost for the work is roughly $45,000.  I estimate value of the house to be roughly $1,200,000.  The sellers are willing to accept much less in exchange for the buyer doing the work themselves. Please give me a call to discuss.


The classic example of a Chevy Chase colonial home.  Find all the details that go into a vintage treasure set in the midst of mature landscaping and close to both Lafayette Park & ES and Rock Creek Park.
