If you were considering trying this Alta Vista row home on for size as a rental, that ship has sailed. The stunningly revamped mid-block house is now listed for sale at $899K. Join the cadre of homeowners fortunate enough to reside on this faux-London block, developed with varied facades by Samuel Eberly Gross. A new glittering photo set is helping usher the 3-bed to market, and shows custom built-ins, millwork, fireplaces, new kitchen, stone baths, mahogany window frames, refurbished basement, and a balcony. There's also a miniature yard (best you can hope for on the Terrace) and secured parking. The pre-reno home sold for just $350K in June 2011, but another—albeit larger—one recently fetched over $700K. So, is the new ask a reach?
