A Screened-In Porch in Bloomingdale with a Screened-in Porch

This updated Bloomingdale home, which sold for more than $110,000 over its list price just seven days after hitting the market, has a great kitchen that opens to the dining room and leads out to a screened-in porch overlooking a parking pad out. Inside, the layout isn’t quite open concept, but the bathrooms and fixtures are nicely updated. The new owner has a fairly large master, along with three fireplaces and a one-bedroom income suite.

Not Your Normal Colonial in Cleveland Park

Colonials in DC usually have a fairly predictable interior, but this new five-bedroom on the northern boundary of Cleveland Park does not. The best part of the house is the kitchen, a spotless white renovation that shares space with a living or dining area and looks out onto the patio through a wall of windows and French doors. The home hit the market in May, was under contract in five days and recently sold for $55,000 above its list price.

  • List Price: $1,499,000
  • Sold Price: $1,554,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 4.5
  • Year Built: 1941
  • Days on Market: Five
  • Listing Agent: Florence Meers, Washington Fine Properties
