$415,000 Above Asking for Custom Car Storage
As indicated below, the buyer of this three-bedroom Chevy Chase colonial escalated significantly above the listing price. The high escalation might have been the result of the custom-built, 900 square-foot detached garage, complete with three alley-facing doors, heating and air conditioning, that could be used for a variety of purposes. The living room has a fireplace, and the galley kitchen has a hood above the stove, a farmhouse basin sink, and sage green cabinetry that conceals the fridge and dishwasher, along with countertops that extend opposite a breakfast area beyond. The lower level has tiled floors with radiant heating and a bar with a wine fridge backed with the laundry area.

$200,100 Above Asking in Brookland
The six-figure escalation on this Brookland four-bedroom took it from a six-figure listing to a seven-figure listing. It, too, has a fireplace in the living room, and sliding glass doors in its formal dining room open onto a screened-in porch with exposed beam ceiling, heat lamp and fans. Additional outdoor spaces include a front porch, a rear deck, and an elevated garden area. Exposed brick frames a wide entryway on the lower level, delineating the rec room from a den; this level also has a laundry/storage room and a full bath with standalone tub. The house also has a surplus-generating solar panel system and a secured parking pad.

Five Figures for a Missing Middle Loft
Located on Chevy Chase's main street, this rowhouse-to-converted condo went under contract in two days for $20,000 above asking price. The one-bedroom unit offers an unexpected bit of loft living, with beams floating beneath the high ceilings in the living room. One of these beams intersects with ladder-like floating stairs that lead up to the loft with built-in closet wall. Back downstairs, the living room also has a door-sized picture window beside sliding glass doors leading out to a covered terrace with parquet-style flooring. The bedroom has a walk-in closet and access to the dual-entry bath.
