1671 R St, NW is a rowhouse four blocks off Wisconsin Ave, NW.  It's a fantastic location.   I viewed the house for a client and he's passed on putting in an offer.  His wife didn't love it but I think it has the makings of an unbelievable dwelling.  The same family has owned it since 1956.  It was updated about 30 years ago and needs work.  It's 1230 square feet and the yearly taxes are $8,052.  It has high ceilings, a working fireplace, a lovely side yard and hardwood floors under the carpet.

3730 R St, NW is my first "First Friday" listing that hasn't sold.  The combination of the size, work needed and price did not align and the house did not move in the allotted time.  It had been leased for many years and was a partial estate sale. (Maybe the owners couldn't carry the payments for the home too long and had to lease it again.)  It's four blocks off Wisconsin Ave, NW.  Once again, the location can't be beat.  It's 1080 square feet and the yearly taxes are $5503.  This house also has a lot of promise.  There are parquet floors, a fireplace and an enormous backyard.  With a few upgrades, this property could be a show stopper.
