A Six-Day Sale in Adams Morgan

This corner condo in Adams Morgan is sure to chase away the winter doldrums with its abundance of natural light, as its high-ceilinged interior features a sunroom-like trapezoidal living room nook and tall windows in each of its two bedrooms. The sense of lightness is heightened in the otherwise industrial-style unit as the exposed exhaust pipes and concrete pillars are painted white to blend in with the walls. With side-by-side bedrooms are off a long entry hall, each has a walk-in closet with extensive built-in shelving, the condo is more than suitable for roommates. The unit also has a triangular private balcony and is wired with a speaker system; access to a separate storage space and reserved parking spot are also included. The unit found a buyer in just under a week.

Seven Days in Southwest

Once you enter this two-bedroom co-op in Southwest, the boldly-colored galley kitchen is just to the right, featuring finishes like marble and butcher block countertops, inset shelves, isometric cube floor tiles, and a subway-tiled backsplash. The living area and both bedrooms feature a triplet of large windows that take up a large portion of the wall. Each bedroom also has an en-suite bath. The new owner, who put the unit under contract a week after it was listed, will also be able to take advantage of community amenities like an outdoor pool, 24-hour desk, playground and fitness center.

A Few Business Days on Upshur

A short walk from Grant Circle and a few blocks from one of the city's hottest restaurant rows lies this renovated rowhouse with an unassuming exterior that doesn't hint at the nearly 1,700 square feet of space inside. The four-bedroom house has a brick-lined entry hall running parallel to the living room, from which the rest of the open main floor extends. Next is the dining room and the kitchen with breakfast bar, which leads to a spacious mudroom/bonus room with access to the rear wooden deck. Three bedrooms are on the second floor, making the finished attic suitable as the fourth bedroom or as an office. The lower level is an in-law suite with two separate entrances, one of which goes out to the deep backyard and, just beyond, the two-car parking pad. The home found a buyer in just five days. 

  • Full Listing: 419 Upshur Street NW (map)
