You'll love this gorgeous 1925 rowhouse situated on a lovely block in Trinidad! 1261 Oates features newly refinished hardwood floors throughout, a newer kitchen and bathroom, three bedrooms (one with a den off the rear), and a large open basement ready for your finishing touches. This lovely house has a front garden with beautiful perennials, a covered front porch and swing, a large rear deck, huge back yard, and parking for one car in the rear. Walk to everything H Street has to offer (Streetcar, Whole Foods, tons of restaurants) and to Union Market and the explosion of dining options and shops there. Notice all renovations and conversions happening on Oates Street! Offers, if any, by Wednesday 20 July, 8pm.

You’re hard-pressed to find a block in this fast-changing Northeast DC neighborhood–where the median price rose by about 7 percent last year–without a house (or three) undergoing a gut-renovation. You’ll spot boarded-up windows next door to for-sale signs in fresh sod. Though much of the city remembers Trinidad for the military-style checkpoints set up by police during the violent summer of 2008, it has moved on–dramatically. Trinidad is now primely positioned: a five-minute walk from the restaurant and bar scene along Northeast’s H Street corridor, a ten-minute stroll from Union Market, and less than a 20-minute walk from NoMa (and the Red Line). While those help its real-estate values, the neighborhood itself has a lot going for it on its own. You’ll find 1920s rowhouses on narrow streets and a diverse community of longtime African-American residents, young families and couples of varying backgrounds (gay, straight, black, white), and students from Gallaudet University, which sits along Trinidad’s western edge. The Whole Foods opening a half mile away is a draw for many house hunters, as is the prospect of owning a four-bedroom, fully renovated rowhouse for $650,000 (or a fixer for less than $450,000). But they’re also attracted to something less tangible: the feeling that Trinidad–unlike, say, the NoMa apartments they might be leaving behind–is a place you move to when you’re ready to call the District home.
