by Nena Perry-Brown

For this installment of Above Asking, we revisit two recently-featured listings which sold for 4-6 figures over asking price.


$2,000 Above Asking for Hill East Two-Bedroom

This renovated Hill East rowhouse is full of interesting details, and just recently sold for slightly above its asking price. At the front of the house, the narrow living area has a pair of exposed brick accent recesses on the long wall opposite the stair, which has a storage nook and small closet built-in beneath. Next, the dining area also has an exposed brick accent and its own window above a built-in bar. The one-wall kitchen has stainless steel appliances and an electric stove beneath a hood, and enjoys natural light from a pair of doors with paneled glass beneath a row of clerestory windows. On the skylit upstairs landing, a barn door conceals the washer/dryer. There is also a rear slate patio surrounded by horizontal wood fencing.
