The latest installment of Above Asking revisits two recently-featured listings in the suburbs that sold for five- and six-figure premiums.
$83,700 Above Asking in Silver Spring
It seems fitting that a Silver Spring house that spent five decades off the market would sell for five figures above asking. The 2,000 square-foot three-bedroom leads with a front porch and inside, the living room has a brick fireplace. The dining room has double exposure and the farmhouse kitchen has a butler's pantry. There is also a lower level with a built-in bar and a generous backyard. The home received multiple offers and sold for almost $84,000 above its original list price earlier this month.

$175,000 Above Asking in Takoma Park
This Takoma Park bungalow commanded a substantial six-figure premium courtesy of its extensive gardens and its unique interior spaces. Past the front brick patio, the house has a narrow sunroom just inside the front door. The stairs have shelving built-in beneath facing a window into the formal dining room with additional built-in shelving. The skylit owner's bedroom has exposed beams beneath the pitched ceiling, and the backyard has tiered patio spaces and a detached garage.
