More Than $200,000 Above Asking in Friendship Heights
The unexpected aspects of this Friendship Heights home expanded to include the $206,000 premium that accompanied its sale. As for the house itself, it offers generous indoor and outdoor spaces and a few surprises. The main level has an efficient layout, with an open kitchen/dining room space delineated by cabinetry and counter space. The upstairs bedrooms are spacious, especially the master bedroom, which has a pair of closets concealed behind barn doors on either side of a window above a built-in dresser and stairs leading up to an unexpected loft/office. An additional bedroom is on the lower level, which also enjoys a rec room with a corner fireplace. The house also has well-appointed gardens in both the front and rear yards, the latter of which also has a skylit detached garage-turned-bonus room.

A $37,000 Premium in the Heart of Historic Anacostia
Between Good Hope Road and the Frederick Douglass House in historic Anacostia, this detached three-bedroom home not only sold in six days, but also went for $37,000 above asking. The house enters into a small foyer with the hallway and stairs straight ahead, while the main dining and living areas along the right side are deceptively spacious. This level ends in the large eat-in kitchen, which has an industrial-style island, subway-tile backsplash, a wall of cabinets and a double farmhouse sink. Three bedrooms share the full bath upstairs. A fenced-in backyard offers plenty of green space with a garden on two sides and a wooden deck that runs the length of the yard and has a built-in bench seating and an attached shed.

The $76,000 Proximity Premium
Bordering the Shaw and Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhoods, this two-bedroom carriage house-turned boutique condo offers a level of convenience that likely factored into it selling for $76,000 above its listing price.

One of the bedrooms has double exposure and is spacious enough to accommodate a separate seating area.
