$188,750 Above Asking for a Previous Week's Find

Judging by the six-figure premium on this meticulously renovated semi-detached house in Georgetown, the offer deadline accompanying the listing drew some impressive bids. The former This Week’s Find has a maritime aesthetic drawing inspiration from the seasides of New England and Michigan, all unified through the use of colors and materials. Customized finishes and fixtures appoint the entire house, from the rope-operated doorbell beside the hand-carved teak banner with gold foil announcing the address above the front door to the rear patio featuring patio stones sourced from the Watergate. The star of the house, however, is the mahogany-paneled kitchen, which contains a coastal map backsplash, custom built-in banquette with Black Galaxy granite tabletop, a True commercial refrigerator with glass doors, a custom British AGA stove with five separate electric and gas ovens, and a Black Galaxy granite two-basin farmhouse sink.

$68,000 Above Asking for Convenient Rowhouse

This semi-detached rowhouse benefits from bordering several popular neighborhoods, namely Shaw, Truxton Circle, Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park, and sold for $68,000 over asking. The two-story two-bedroom has a lot of eye-catching brick details, both along its façade and in the interior, where exposed brick walls in the living room and the master bedroom boast iron star bolts. Both the bedrooms upstairs contain built-in shelving units, spanning a corner in the master and surrounding the windows in the second bedroom. Back downstairs, the main level terminates in the brightly-tiled, angular kitchen, which has a tall, narrow window. There is also a back door to the rear brick patio, which has brick partitions on either side and blends into a deep garage with alley access.
