In this week’s installment of Above Asking, UrbanTurf highlights two recently-featured listings that went for five figures above listing price.
$60,000 Above Asking for a Piece of LeDroit Park History
Not only did one of LeDroit Park’s oldest and most eye-catching houses find a buyer in less than a week, it also sold for $60,000 above asking price. All four stories of the house are packed with original charm and aesthetic interest, with oversized and stained-glass windows, soaring ceiling heights, skylights, ornate original molding and a main-level solarium. The kitchen is the epicenter of the home, with a tin-press ceiling, extensive floor-to-ceiling cabinetry (including a concealed refrigerator), multiple islands, and a breakfast nook with a U-shaped eating area. The basement also serves as a two-bedroom in-law suite.

A Respectfully-Renovated Rosedale Rowhouse
Over in Rosedale, this quaint three-bedroom rowhouse was built at the turn of the century and was renovated in a manner that highlights its history. For example, the main floor largely has an open floorplan and uses a standalone wood-burning brick fireplace and chimney stack as a partition between the living and dining areas. An arched entryway framed with built-in shelving and cabinetry separates the dining room from the eat-in kitchen. While the second bedroom upstairs has an attached bonus room, the partially-finished basement offers the opportunity to expand the house’s usable footprint. With its endearing architectural features and bonus space, the house commanded $26,000 above listing price.
