There was a lot to like about this two-story unit on the top floor of a converted Victorian rowhouse in Adams Morgan, which went under contract within 72 hours of hitting the market and sold for about $6,000 over the original asking price. It’s bright thanks to the many windows in the open concept living and dining room. Upstairs there’s a large balcony with room for dining, lounging and grilling.
