1962 Eichleresque MCM in D.C.Back on Market; $200K More Than Last Year – $957K

When I first wrote about this MCM in Chevy Chase, D.C., just over a year ago it was listed at $799K and needed massive work, as I detailed in the post. The 4,000 sq. ft. home in Hawthorne, which evokes Eichler to me, is now back on the market for $200,000 more than the June 2007 selling price of $755K. The listing does not detail the work that has been done and it is hard to tell exactly what was done from just looking at the pictures. While I’m sure the owner did some work because the house was in bad shape, it is important if you are looking at this house to find out what work was done to justify the price in today’s market.
