The Six-Figure Palisades Premium

Over in Palisades, this semi-detached house just two blocks from the C&O Canal boasts treetop views and an abundance of green space. The interior is full of functional design features, from the built-in shelving unit in the second bedroom to the cabinet framing a small pass-through window from the dining room to the kitchen. An elevated deck overlooks the backyard, which also has a patio with a pergola and a brick-paved path leading to a two-car garage. After spending less than a week on the market, the home received multiple bids and sold for just over $100,000 above asking.

Loft-Like and Art Deco-Influenced in Logan Circle

Not only did this two-bedroom rowhouse in Logan Circle sell quickly over the summer, it also went for $65,000 above asking. The interior of the two-story house is much more hip and unorthodox than its traditional exterior, with a loft-like steel spiral staircase hovering in the center of the main level, right in front of the kitchen with a wall of windows and a double-height ceiling. Art deco design influence creeps out in the glass block tiles that create a window in the master bath and denote the second bedroom in the basement.

  • Asking Price: $995,000
  • Sales Price: $1,060,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1890
  • Square Feet: 1,805
  • Listing Agents: Kimberly Casey and Daryl Judy, Washington Fine Properties
