As featured in Bethesda Magazine 

Are you tired of going to sleep underneath the confines of a ceiling every night? Looking for a way to enjoy the great outdoors year-round? Already preparing for the next solar eclipse? Look no further than Brightwood, where there is currently a roofless house on the market for half a million dollars.

According to the listing, which was posted by DC agency Real Living at Home, interested buyers are looking at “a rare opportunity to own on a very desirable block in Brightwood.” It also stipulates that “the property will require finishing,” but doesn’t mention the lack of roof.

Brian Galvin, a real estate agent with the company, says that the current owners gutted the property and put together preliminary drawings before opting to put it up for sale. “Sometimes you have to make tough decisions,” he says of the owners, who were juggling other projects at the time.

DC property records indicate that building was purchased by an individual with an address that corresponds with Taja Investments, LLC in 2015.
