Above Asking: Fetching Premiums in Alexandria and Capitol Hill

  • March 4th

by UrbanTurf Staff

In this week's Above Asking, we feature two homes on Capitol Hill and in Alexandria that recently sold for a premium. 


A $15,000 Premium For a Lincoln Park Townhouse 

This three-story corner townhouse on Capitol Hill found a buyer in four days and then sold for $15,000 above its asking price just last week. The main level has a stone floor, a brick fireplace in the living room and a modern kitchen with wide French doors that lead to the back garden. One floor up serves as the primary entertainment space and has a full bathroom and office space. UrbanTurf's favorite feature is the primary suite, which takes up the top floor. Out back, there is a garden, as well as a one-car garage.

$55,000 Above in Alexandria

Sitting on over an acre of land, this Alexandria home spent just about 24 hours on the market and then sold a couple weeks ago at a $55,000 premium. The main level features three living rooms, but the primary space stands out due to its wooden paneled walls, a stone fireplace, A-frame ceiling with exposed wooden beams, and an attached sunroom. Most of the finishings on the main level allude to the Victorian aesthetic with rounded window tops and crown molding. A screened porch leads to a back deck and then a large pool and a pair of pool houses. A two-car garage attaches to the home's breezeway.
