Washington, D.C.’s Northeast neighborhood, Trinidad, isn’t typically known for home sales that near the million-dollar mark, but it one day might.

According to Redfin, the last time this Trinidad property sold was in March 2017 for $383,670. It recently relisted for $914,900 and is currently the second most expensive home for sale in the neighborhood, underneath this $999,000 townhome, which is described as “in need of [a] complete gut renovation” by the listing.

Usually, homes in Trinidad don’t list this high. The current median listing price in the neighborhood is $585,000. It’s not impossible for Trinidad homes to sell over $900,000, though. Redfin compiled Trinidad’s most expensive home sales, and the most expensive home ever sold was at 1228 Florida Avenue NE, costing $926,000 in April 2013.

The second and third priciest sales in the neighborhood were at 1239 Oates Street NE and 1271 Oates Street NE, costing $910,0000 in September 2017 and $905,000 in October 2017, respectively.

In a Washington Post article published in September 2016, Trinidad is described as previously having a reputation for crime, but the modest neighborhood has undergone many home improvements.

Trinidad resident Tony Britt told the Washington Post, “The neighborhood was run-down, but now it’s a good place to live. Houses are selling like hotcakes.”

When it comes to this home in particular, the 2,557-square-foot building offers four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. Renovated from top to bottom, there are design features that are sure to impress homebuyers, such as the coffered ceilings, skylights, and a lower-level in-law suite with a kitchen. Off-street parking is also included.

The listing agent is David Moretz of M Squared Real Estate LLC.

According to UrbanTurf, the neighborhood boundaries for Trinidad are West Virginia Avenue NE to the west, Mt. Olivet Road to the north, Bladensburg Road NE to the east, and Florida Avenue NE to the south.
