If you haven't noticed, Urban Turf's "Unique Spaces" column has quickly become one of our favorite parts about the unique real estate site. This month editor Mark Wellborn gets us a glimpse into Ed Carp's amazing steal: the sprawling Tilden Gardens Resturant in North Cleveland Park, which Ed turned into his private residence for $50,000.
According to Urban Turf, Mr. Carp is no stranger to budget-conscious renovations. His previous purchase was a 3,000 square foot apartment in Adam's Morgan which he bought for $95,000 (not that's not missing a zero) and sold for a 5 fold profit.
After renovating the former Tilden Gardens restaurant, Mr. Carp furnished it with pieces he scored form former hotels and hotel furniture warehouses.
