This installment of Under Contract revisits three listings that were featured together on UrbanTurf and went under contract within days of each other.
A Business Week in Brightwood Park
This expanded Brightwood Park rowhouse found a buyer just five days after hitting the market. The covered front porch leads into a main level that has double exposure courtesy of its open concept floorplan. At the base of the stairs, a stainless steel-and-stone fireplace sits below a display recess, sitting atop a built-in shelf that also forms a media area in the living room. The galley kitchen has an L-shaped breakfast bar island and a hood above the stove. Glass doors in the dining area beyond lead out to a partially covered deck, and patio and lawn areas are a few steps down, along with a two-car parking pad. The owner's bedroom has a skylit en-suite bath behind pocket doors and has double sinks and a spa-like shower with travertine tiles and teak floors. The walk-out lower level has a rec room, bedroom, and full bath.

One Week for a One Bedroom with Balcony
A pair of turn-of-the-century rowhouses in Kalorama once served as a bed-and-breakfast, and now it is a boutique condo building. This resulting one-bedroom unit enjoys oversized windows and a private balcony off the bedroom with treetop views of Kalorama Park. The open floor plan in the living area includes a U-shaped kitchen in one corner with marble-topped countertops, a marble tile backsplash, and under-counter lighting, separated from the adjacent dining area by a breakfast bar. The en-suite bath also has marble finishes, from the countertop to the floor and shower-stall tiles. The unit also has a half-bath and a walk-in closet with custom storage, and the pet-friendly building has a shared roof deck with a pergola and grill. The one-bedroom went under contract a week after hitting the market, receiving a total of eight offers.

Five Days to a Contract for a Mid-Century Goodman
This Wheaton Crest mid-century ranch house is an updated example of Charles Goodman's architectural presence in the DC area. Wood planks traverse the vaulted ceiling throughout most of the house, and the south-facing wall has staggered, stacked windows. There is a deep flex space just inside, and the adjacent, minimalist galley kitchen is separated by a breakfast bar and includes quartz countertops and a honeycomb tile backsplash. The living area has a wood-burning fireplace with recessed storage across from a bar nook. Each of the carpeted bedrooms has a transom window above the door, and two also have stacked windows. An office nook is built into the hallway where a glass door leads to a garden-framed yard with shed, with a path to an elevated patio.
