I remember when the first $1 million house was sold on the Hill, back in the 90′s … it was quite breathtaking. These days million dollar homes are a dime a dozen, and it’s not uncommon to see prices in the mid $2 – $3 million range.
So what can you get on the Hill for, say, $2.5 million ? A lot more than you can get in Georgetown, to be sure!
