In this installment of Above Asking, UrbanTurf revisits two recently-featured listings that sold at a premium. 

$25,000 Above For a Chevy Chase Farmhouse

Fun accents throughout this Chevy Chase farmhouse include brassy hardware and creative wallpaper, and those attributes may have played a role in it fetching a $25,000 premium above its asking price. UrbanTurf was quite fond of the kitchen, which was renovated in 2015 and has a large center island, quartz countertops and various-sized cabinetry. The basement makes a great option for entertaining guests thanks to a bar with a built-in sink and wine fridge. For those who enjoy spending time outside, there is also a full yard in the front along with a covered porch, and patio area out back.

A $130,000 Premium For a Japanese Style Mid-Century Modern Home

This two-story Silver Spring home, with an aesthetic inspired by Japanese culture, sold for $130,000 above its asking price. With an open layout, the main room of the listing is only broken up by a large column, which also serves as storage for the kitchen. A wood-burning fireplace draws attention to the far wall in the main room. Two bedrooms can be found on the main level while another two are located on the bottom level. A tiered deck slopes down behind the home and winds its way around the yard, offering ample lounging opportunities. The finished basement could serve as the perfect game room or workspace.
