DC Has Reached Peak Real Estate Insanity With This Doctor’s Office For Sale as a Home

We’ve seen DC post offices become taco joints and warehouses turned condos. Not even churches are sacred anymore. But this might just be real estate’s final frontier: the Benning Road Medical Clinic is for sale—as a home.

The 3 story building (practice?) has 5 bedrooms (examination rooms?) and 2.5 baths, which keeps guests/patients from having to share. As for the kitchen, well, it doesn’t seem to have one.

Located at 1807 Benning Road near H St. NE, this house-cum-hospital lies just inside the reach of the new streetcar, which is a plus (or a minus, depending on your streetcar leanings).

According to the listing, the building is “perfect for whichever home lifestyle choice you could imagine.” Personally, we like to imagine a home lifestyle where we wear nurse’s scrubs and make our guests read back issues of Woman’s Day while they wait.

Bottomless bowls of generic lollipops not included in the $625,000 asking price.
