For this installment of Above Asking, UrbanTurf looks back at a few recently-featured listings, each of which sold for a five-figure premium.


$40,000 Over Off 14th Street

Located just off the 14th Street Corridor, this two-bedroom condo only has 850 square feet of interior space, but still sold for a $40,000 premium. The U-shaped kitchen nook has a floating hood above an integrated cooktop and is open to the living room with a bay window nook on the opposite wall. The hall creates space for an office area, and the owner's bedroom has double exposure courtesy of a juliet balcony. The unit also has 1.5 baths and a laundry closet.

A $41,000 Premium for One Bedroom and an Office

This one-bedroom unit a block from Kalorama Park sold for $41,000 above asking, with an offer accepted 48 hours after it hit the market. Windows in the open-concept living/dining area offer views of the U.S. Capitol, and the residence comes with a separately-deed parking space. The bedroom, however, is the main event, as it provides a floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving unit, enough space for a sitting area, and a set of paned french doors opening into a sunroom-like sleeping porch that can function as office or bonus space.
