by UrbanTurf Staff

In this week's Above Asking, we look at two homes recently featured on UrbanTurf, including a five-bedroom listing that sold for nearly $300,000 above its asking price. 


A $50,000 Premium in Arlington's Aurora Highlands

This four-bedroom listing in Arlington's Aurora Highlands neighborhood went under contract quickly, and closed about a week ago for $50,000 above its $1.175 million asking price. There a number of separate spaces throughout this home to take advantage of the property's many windows that allow one to enjoy the outdoors. UrbanTurf's favorite space is the family room in the back of the house with its own bar area and an attached sun room. Out back there is a good-sized backyard along with a shed, and for the BBQ lovers, a built-in gas line to the grill.

$275,000 Above For a Chevy Chase Cape Cod on a Hill

This Chevy Chase Cape Cod home attracted a lot of attention from buyers when it hit the market in late January, and the sale price is evidence of that: the five-bedroom sold for nearly $300,000 above list price. Both renovated and expanded about ten years ago, the house sits on a nearly 12,000 square-foot lot on top of a hill. It is filled with interesting rooms, including an oversized dining room with wood-paneled walls and a family room with cathedral ceilings, a fireplace and a dining area. Outside, there is a large slate patio, a deep front yard, and parking for two cars with an EV charger.
