Buy Me: 1543 8th Street, Northwest

Thanks to ML for the tip that Shiloh Baptist Church's Eighth Street properties now sport Long and Foster for sale signs! I happily and sincerely applaud the church for its decision to sell these properties for the purpose moving forward with their their plans for their Ninth Street properties. I look forward to working on this new chapter in church/neighborhood life.

I could only find one online listing -- the listing for 1543 Eighth Street (the property on the southeast corner of the intersection of Eighth and Q Streets, Northwest). I will post a link to, and information from, the other listing (1600 Eighth Street) as soon as I find it.

The listing for 1543 Eighth Street, Northwest (MLS No. DC7145831) can be found here here. The asking price is $450,000 for this historic four bedroom, three bath house. The property is described as follows:
Wonderful and unique architecture in a location that makes sense. Approx 5 blks north of Convention Center, approx 2 blks to Metro at Rhode Island Avenue and 2 blks to the soon to be revitalized O Street Market and other anticipated retail developments. Convenient to many downtown amenities. Shown by appointment made with owner through agent. Perfect corner to renovate to your tastes.
Despite the property's current condition, I think $450k is a reasonable (or at very least non-laughable) asking price. Good job, Shiloh, and good luck selling this beautiful-bones property!
