Coming soon just off of H Street NE: a customized renovation, including a 3rd floor addition and roof deck for nearly $800k. From a reader:
I love Wylie Street, but this listing seems a bit overpriced and ambitious, especially since they just started doing the demolition on the place, and, unless there’s some miracle I haven’t heard of, they will need a variance for a 3rd floor and possibly a roof deck
The reader tipped us off to a Baltimore-area Craigslist ad, which offers potential buyers the ability to “pick your cabinets, colors, hardwood floors and tile” during the renovation process. Of course, that’s assuming it gets built and the variance noted by our reader gets approved.
Here’s the full ad:

So, what do you think? Is just under $800k a good deal for a customized, newly-renovated home? Do you think they’ll run into zoning issues, as the reader suggested?
