$108,000 Over For a Kensington Five-Bedroom With Curb Appeal

This five-bedroom with a wide front porch and a storybook exterior garnered multiple offers and sold last week for more than $100,000 above the original list price. The interior gives off a farmhouse feel thanks to the open floor plan, white finishings and warm wood accents. Connected to the kitchen, an octagonal sitting room has doors leading to a flagstone patio. Upstairs, a primary suite includes a walk-in closet and an ensuite bath with brassy accents, a double vanity sink and a large shower. A window seat at the top of the stairs also acts as storage and a reading nook.

$110,000 North of Asking For a Vintage Bungalow in Takoma 

Takoma is one of the more popular neighborhoods for homebuyers in DC, and this bungalow is a prime example of that, as it recently sold for $110,000 above its original asking price. While the home was redesigned, the previous owners did it with a vintage feel in mind, preserving the original wood trim, dark wood floors, and five-panel wood doors. A large brick fireplace centers the living area, and the formal dining room includes room for a piano and an eight-person table. Upstairs, the primary suite offers a walk-in closet and a huge attic storage space. The fully-finished basement includes its own kitchenette and recreation space, and an expansive, grassy backyard and a front porch await new owners.
