A little fixer upper

NH, Upshur, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

So this is the house that sold for a ridiculous amount of money on the corner of Upshur and New Hampshire. I think the picture does it justice. It is a real shell, but I've seen tons of workers gutting it, even on the weekends. This is a positive development as it has been a shell for years now. One thing of possible concern is that I saw multiple electrical monitors being installed which leads me to believe it may be turned into condos. Not sure how many more condos this market can handle. But, hopefully it will look pretty sweet when completed. I'll update when there are significant changes.

I'm so glad to see others that are as interested in this house as I am. When we first started looking at houses in this neighborhood I was intrigued by this one at first site. I actually drive out of my way sometimes to check its "progress". Its like an inanimate soap opera/train wreck...I just can not look away.
