In this week’s Above Asking, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties that sold above their list price, including a Georgetown home with a sky-high sales price. All were under contract in less than a week.

$62,000 Over List for a Cozy Capitol Hill Rowhouse

This home, last sold in 2008, was carefully renovated in the last six years. The rowhouse is filled with multi-level spaces, the not-too-overdone use of exposed brick and hidden areas that make a visitor feel like they’re exploring a castle. It went under contract after six days on the market and sold recently for $62,000 above the list price.

A Patio, Lockers and A Great Rec Room on the Hill

This three-bedroom Victorian on the Hill is stately on the outside but different from its peers on the inside. The owner-renovated home features a very cool kitchen with a wood-beamed ceiling, a screen porch lined with lockers that leads out to a patio and preserved original pine floors throughout. Downstairs a buyer may have been taken in by the laidback retro rec room. It sold for $10,000 above asking after four days on the market.

  • List Price: $885,000
  • Sold Price: $895,120

A Big Two-Bedroom in Kalorama

This 1,470 square-foot, two-bedroom co-op in Kalorama offered its buyer a lot to love with a large entryway and bright living and dining areas separated by pocket doors. A fireplace and small desk nook off the kitchen are also nice touches. The slightly cramped kitchen clearly wasn’t too much of a problem as the listing sold for $20,000 over the list price in a mere three days.

  • Address: 1852 Columbia Road NW, #202 (map)
  • List Price: $585,000
  • Sold Price: $605,000
  • Co-op Fees: $810/month
  • Bedrooms: Two

  • Listing Agent: Jeffrey Tanck, Century 21 Redwood Realty

A Whopping $280,000 Over List in Georgetown

This six-bedroom home came with a typically high Georgetown price tag, but offered a lot: 5,000 square feet, four and a half bathrooms, a rental suite downstairs and plenty of period details. Despite it’s sky-high list price of $2,995,000, we figured it was a bit underpriced for its size, location and condition (sparkling). One of the home’s best features is the kitchen, which has a tin ceiling and multiple seating areas. The home has a very deep backyard by Georgetown standards, which the description notes is big enough for a pool. Maybe that’s what convinced the eventual buyer to jump $280,000 over the list price.

  • Address: 1521 31st Street NW (map)
  • List Price: $2,995,000
  • Sold Price:$3,275,000
  • Bedrooms: Six
  • Bathrooms: 4.5
  • Year Built: 1880
  • Listing Agent: Michael Rankin, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
