This week's installment of Above Asking features listings in Petworth and Cleveland Park which each sold for five figures over asking price.

$35,100 Above Asking for Updated Rowhouse

A few blocks from Petworth's informal restaurant row, this updated rowhouse recently sold for $35,000 above asking. The contemporary interior features an open-concept main level with an accent wall of slanted shiplap boards in the living area, creating shelving nooks where the wall meets the kitchen. Arranged in one corner, the kitchen has a breakfast bar island, marbled countertops and an oven hood concealed to blend with the surrounding cabinetry. Off the skylit upstairs landing, the owner's bedroom has a private balcony and an en-suite bath with large honeycomb tile floors and an exposed brick accent wall. The lower level has herringbone-patterned hardwoods, a wet bar, a den, and a bedroom with full bath. The house also has a petite front porch and a rear deck overlooking a paved patio and parking pad.

Candy Factory Comes to Cleveland Park

A short walk from both the Cleveland Park Metro station and Melvin C. Hazen Park, this bungalow's nearly 2,500 square feet of interior space is not apparent at first glance. On the main level, a sizeable portion of that square footage is occupied by the eat-in kitchen, enjoying radiant tiled flooring, a partially-pitched and -skylit ceiling, a custom pantry behind barn doors, and a custom island topped with a marble slab sourced from a candy factory. The upstairs landing offers bonus space fit for an office or seating area, and each of the bathrooms is finished in contrasting tile-work. Selling for $10,000 over listing price, the house also has both front and back porches, a generous partially-finished lower level, and a detached garage with driveway.
