$92,000 Above Asking for House-Like Condo

With an exterior that blends in with the surrounding stone-clad Dupont Circle housing stock, this condo seems more like a single-family home and that continues inside. Past the entry vestibule, the foyer has a doorway-sized built-in mirror. The high-ceilinged living room across the hall is centered around a wood-burning fireplace with another built-in mirror alongside a gently curving bay window. Down the hall, a glass-paned door opens onto a bright den with a tiled fireplace sandwiched between floor-to-ceiling built-ins. The owner's suite has a pair of closets beneath concealed storage cubbies. The unit also has a rear patio with privacy screening and comes with a parking space. This whole package resulted in the unit selling for $92,000 above its original asking price.
