before: it's one of four somewhat crummy townhouses on the north side of the street, including what I like to call the Haunted Mansion, an old place owned by political activists Dorothy Brizill and Gary Imhoff. In their defense, they've fixed up the Haunted Mansion a bit.
Anyway, 1337 has sat empty (or appeared to be empty) for at least 2 years, with broken and missing windows and an overgrown yard, but lately I've seen a lot of workers there taking out old wood and other trash and tossing it.
According to the city's records, it's owned by Ultra Vision Developers Inc from Fairfax City, VA, who bought it in 2008. It's a big place, 6 bedrooms and 4 baths. It was on the vacant property list in August 2009, but is now off it. Let's hope they get it fixed up and sold soon.
