All the neighborhood news from the past week on Curbed DC...
A sure bet for Hoarders, in Petworth

PETWORTH—That hot mess you see above is your typical foreclosure story: lots of crap in an affordable house. This one is a three bed, one bath asking $320K, cash only. Click over for more horror.

SHAW—A new apartment building has just opened up its leasing team so there are sixteen new units, all with outdoor space, inside Bailey Park. Prices start at $2,700 for a two bedroom, but click over if you want to complete price list and floorplans.

VIDEO INTERLUDE—Like making fun of hipsters? Click over for about two minute's worth of fun where a local comedy guy gives directions to tonight's show, without talking.

ARLINGTON—The first Passive House for Northern Virginia has turned into a rental. The developers decided to hold onto it while the Columbia Pike street car goes in (and brings plenty of other development with it).

BROOKLAND—This week's Under 300K Club house comes with its own grape arbor. Sure it isn't a very big grape arbor, but it's a grape arbor all the same.

THREE PRICE POINTS—We took a look inside one building, Watergate South, and found three different units for three different levels of income. Consider it the tall, grande, venti version of looking at real estate.

LEAST EXPENSIVES—We're taking a summer breather from our weekly look at the cheapest properties in different neighborhoods so that gives us a chance to look back at the houses we've profiled so far. What sold, what is still on the market, and what nabes fared the best.

RACKED—This week in retail, there's a new Microsoft store at Pentagon City, two Fashion Nights Out, a DSW opening report and more.

WARRENTON—There's a $25M horse farm for sale with a long history of producing winning thoroughbred racehorses. It comes with three main houses and 174 stalls.

NUMBERS—Today is the day we release our sales heat map for all the homes that sold last month. Check it out if you want to find out what things went for in your zip code or in someone else's. If you want to know about the suburbs, we also have the data for each county in these tables.
