An Extra $2,000 for a Narrow Rowhome in Dupont

This narrow 19th-century charmer sold in just over two weeks and went for $2,000 above its asking price. Though the 1,300-square-foot home is dwarfed by some of its neighbors, the 13’ ceilings and tall windows help make the house feel airy. The second floor has a dining room and a sitting room, while the two bedrooms sit on the third floor. The relatively updated kitchen leads out onto an outdoor patio.

Well Above Asking for a Restored Home on the Hill

This house not far from Union Station and the action on H Street was carefully restored by previous owners to highlight its 1890s character — from the old wooden floors to the traditional staircase. The work paid off: The rowhouse sold for more than $30,000 over asking after a little more than a week on the market. Upstairs are two nicely-sized bedrooms with exposed brick that adds character. A large brick patio out back lends itself to entertaining guests.

$201,000 Over List in Two Days

This Dutch colonial in Bethesda’s Battery Park, which is surrounded by the quintessential white picket fence, went $201,000 over its asking price after just 48 hours on the market in December. The home closed in early February. The curb appeal took this home a long way; inside some of the spaces need updating, including the kitchen. The home is walking distance to downtown Bethesda’s shops and restaurants, and out back there’s a detached garage and downstairs the basement is finished.

  • Sold Price: $1,251,000
