In this edition of Above Asking, UrbanTurf takes a look at two recently-featured homes a short walk from Rock Creek Park that went for more than their listed price.
$60,000 More for Six Bedrooms Just Inside the City
Located a stone’s throw from Silver Spring, this Tudor-style home fetched $60,000 above asking. The exterior has a suburban feel, with a stone and brick facade, a corner lot with plenty of space, a deck with a paved patio attached, and a two-car garage. The interior blends the classic and the urbane, with a simple, modern chef’s kitchen with an eat-in nook juxtaposed alongside a screened-in porch and stone fireplaces.
