Well it has been a long time coming…..I am very happy to report that on Tuesday December 1st John finally closed on the house on Arkansas Avenue! He has been trying to acquire it for about three years now and was able to do so when the previous owner lost it in a foreclosure. After all of the red tape and jumping through hoops associated with that, the signing of the deed was a big cause for celebrations.
The house is actually in good shape overall. It has been a rental for several years and does show some signs of wear and tear and deferred maintenance, but has fantastic bones and boasts a location directly across from Rock Creek Park. John is busily planning renovations. How exciting! Congratulations John!
