A number of GoDCers have been asking for more east of the river stuff (including our GoDCer friend Ayanna) … so here’s another cool advertisement from Hillcrest Heights that we found in the Washington Post. This one is from July 25th, 1959. I suspect some of you will recognize the style of this home, much like most home built in the 1950s.
Also, are you looking at that price? $14,975? Oh, one more thing. Notice the sales agent, T.N. Lerner? Does that ring a bell? Yep, that’s because it’s Theodore N. Lerner (aka, Ted Lerner). You know, the dude that owns the Washington Nationals.
Interested in the neighborhood today. Check out the Google Map.
