Kensington fixer-upper comes with extra wide garage, major potential

The property is on the market for a pricey $1.6 million

Priced at $1.6 million, there’s no doubt that this semi-attached house in Kensington is on the pricer side for the neighborhood. At 2,400 square feet, that means the property at 146 Dahill Road is asking about $666 per square foot, well over the neighborhood average of $606 cited by StreetEasy. Couple that with the fact that the house could use one hell of a gut renovation, and that makes the place all the more expensive in the end.

All that said, the potential here is immense. The house is currently set up as a legal two-family—income property!—and both units could certainly use some TLC. The listing claims that carpet hides the house’s hardwood floors, and pictures show that some original details like a clawfoot tub and exposed beams can be found under the decades of slapdash cosmetic overhauls.

One major perk: the property comes with an extra-wide garage—a one-and-a-half car garage, by listing parlance—plus parking for three additional cars. The house’s curb appeal is also off the charts, with two generous sized front porches on each of its floors and intricate facade brick work. Rene Maggio at Gateway Arms Realty Corp holds the listing.

So, is this place worth its asking price? As always, leave your opinions in the comments.
