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. A glass door in the unit opens out to a small patio with storage and room for a grill; a flight of stairs ascends to a private 265 square-foot roof deck.
