In this edition of Above Asking, UrbanTurf takes a look at two recently-featured homes that went for more than their listed price.
A Small Premium For a Picture-Perfect Kitchen at Pinehurst Park
Fronting Pinehurst Parkway Park in the Hawthorne neighborhood, this three-story Cape Cod-style house is a recent renovation, complete with a set of solar panels. The interior has lots of storage courtesy of walls of built-in cabinetry, and even the master suite has a set of walk-in closets. The modern chef’s kitchen was featured in Cook’s Illustrated, with its leathered granite countertops and six-burner stovetop. Picture windows flood the living and dining rooms with natural light, and there is also a stone paved patio in the bi-level landscaped backyard. The whole package resulted in the home selling for just below $1 million.

$68,000 Above Asking For A Book-Lover’s Bliss on the Hill
The complementary Little Free Library on the sidewalk outside this four-story Victorian rowhouse foreshadows what awaits inside. With nearly 3,500 square feet of living space over four floors, a rear screened-in porch, and large bay windows facing Lincoln Park, there is plenty to love in the house. However, a second bedroom with wall-to-wall shelving and an attached sunroom may certainly catch the eye of anyone with an extensive book collection. The home, which also has a separate one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, recently sold for almost $70,000 above asking.

- Bedrooms: Five
