In Above Asking, we sift through real estate records and highlight homes featured on UrbanTurf that recently sold for above their asking prices.
DC’s 102 Year-Old Bungalow
Built at a cost of just $6,500 back in 1911, this Chevy Chase four-bedroom has since gotten a bit bigger. Constructed with elements of fieldstone, cedar, pine, glass, and metal, the house has a wrap-around front porch, a large stone fireplace and 10-foot beamed ceilings in many of the rooms, including the double living space and large family room. Two of the bedrooms have enough room for separate seating areas, but our favorite spot was the attic. Staged like a little, secret living room, the upstairs space looks like the perfect place for children to escape from their parents. The home, featured on UrbanTurf two months ago, sold for $26,000 above its asking price.

Penthouse in a Logan Circle Mansion
Logan Circle is nestled in the midst of stately, enormous Victorians, many of which have been divided into condos and apartments. This unit, featured in What $1 Million Buys You last month, is the penthouse of one such Victorian. The condo has a fireplace, a skylight, a walk-in closet and a 1,000-square-foot private roof deck. The layout allows for some interesting spaces, including a breakfast nook and a reading nook in the den. It ended up selling for $20,000 above its asking price.
