The five highest sales prices paid for Washington, DC properties in October is in stark contrast to the top five listed homes. The five highest priced listings range in price from a low of $10,000,000 to a high of $39,500,000. And here is what actually sold last month:
2716 36th Place NWfor $1,850,000: the asking price was $2,150,000, reduced from $2,275,000. The house was on the market for 262 days. Located in Observatory Circle, this center hall brick colonial is pretty much the Washington standard. It has 6 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and over 3700 square feet of living space. The kitchen and baths had recent high end renovations, and the entire house appeared to be in excellent condition.
P Street NW for $2,200,000: the asking price was $2,275,000. This is a Georgetown classic townhome dating back to about 1900. It has over 4000 square feet of space and has been beautifully renovated and decorated. It's interesting to note that the house does not have parking, which is unusual in this price range - and in Georgetown, parking is a very good thing to have.
4940 Indian Lane NWfor $2,400,000: the asking price was $2,750,000, reduced from $2,950,000. This Spring Valley home was what we sometimes call a "granny house", looking well-cared for but with kitchen and baths that were state of the art when it was built in 1956. The interior space was over 5000 square feet, and the house is situated on a beautiful and well-landscaped lot. This one has a lot of potential, and it will be interesting to see what the new owners do with the place.
2400 Tilden Street NW for $3,330,000: listed at $3,595,000. On the edge of Rock Creek Park, this home dates back to 1796, known as the Pierce Still House. The renovation may have been one of the best I've seen, with a kitchen fireplace big enough to roast a cow! It has 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, and over 6000 square feet of space. It ranks as just about the favorite place I've seen here in Washington - at any price.
2446 Belmont Road NWfor $4,350,000: listed for $4,995,000, and previously listed for $5,750,000 and was on the market for a total of 279 days. This stone Tudor has approximately 5000 square feet of space sits on a huge, beautifully landscaped lot overlooking Rock Creek Park. The kitchen hadn't been renovated recently, but it looked like a high quality classic from the mid-century. The house has 8 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, and the dining room is large enough to host a state dinner!
