DC’s One-Room House

This attention-grabbing home was a good fit for those with the budget for a studio but the hankering for a house. The Capitol Hill home has 371 square feet, no walls, and a small, grassy backyard. It found a buyer five days after hitting the market, following a bidding war. The final price was about $30,000 above asking.

  • Sale Price: $280,000

Top Floor Unit At 17th and T

This one-bedroom is well-located (at the corner of Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, and the U Street Corridor), well-placed (at the top of the building), and well-lit (as a corner unit, it has ample windows and a skylight). As such, we weren’t surprised when the property found a buyer in under a week. It appears that the asking price was a pretty good guess at what it would fetch: the condo sold for about $11,000 above asking.

  • Address: 1741 T Street NW, #404 (map)
  • Asking Price: $385,000
  • Sale Price: $395,850
  • Bedrooms: One
