This installment of Above Asking circles back to two recently-featured listings in Northeast, each of which sold for five figures over listing price.

$55,000 Above Asking on East Capitol Street

Despite selling for $55,000 above asking price, this semi-detached three-bedroom overlooking East Capitol Street was still affordable by city standards. Conveniently located four blocks from Benning Road Metro station, the house has both a front and a side entrance, with the latter sporting an archtop door that opens into a sizeable foyer with the original mirrored door to the basement stairs. The farmhouse kitchen has a built-in wine rack and a breakfast bar, while the adjacent dining area has a bay window. Upstairs, the front bedroom has symmetrical pairs of closets and archtop alcoves, and the second bedroom has a wall of built-ins. The house, which went under contract in six days, also has a large front porch, a partially-finished basement, and a spacious multi-level yard with rear parking pad.
