Above Asking: $100,000 Over List in Mount Pleasant: Figure 1

Craftsman Convenient to the Park

This craftsman-style Mount Pleasant rowhouse is the sort of home that would appeal to plenty of buyers: the wooden detailing, wide front porch and office space off of the master bedroom gave the five-bedroom an edge over typical listings. The 1,980-square-foot home found a buyer in one week, and a bidding war drove the initial price up by more than $100,000.

  • Address: 2011 Klingle Road NW (map)
  • Asking Price: $879,000
  • Sale Price: $996,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1921
  • Days on Market: 7

Renovated Over a Decade on 10th Street

Rather than an all-in-one rehab, this 10th Street NW Victorian underwent a series of renovations over the course of a decade. At some point, someone took down walls: the first floor has one big, open room with two fireplaces, while the kitchen is a bit more private. The rental unit on the lower level will certainly help the new owners offset their mortgage. The home went under contract 10 days after hitting the market, and sold for about $40,000 over the asking price.

  • Address: 1522 10th Street NW (map)
  • Asking Price: $812,000
  • Sale Price: $855,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1890
  • Days on Market: 10

Mount Pleasant Rowhouse With Views of the Park

This Mount Pleasant rowhouse has three bedrooms, with windows that point directly into Rock Creek Park. The fireplaces in the master bedroom and kitchen, the clawfoot bathtub, and the columns and dramatic staircase add some stately flair to the home. After the listing entered the market in mid-April, a buyer picked it up within six days. Like the first listing we featured, the sales price for the home was more than $100,000 over the asking price.

  • Address: 1835 Ingleside Terrace NW (map)
  • Asking Price: $774,000
  • Sale Price: $883,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
