For this edition of Under Contract, UrbanTurf circles back to three recently-featured homes, from a Rosedale rowhouse that found a buyer in just about a week to a Chevy Chase farmhouse that went under contract in just over a month.
Five Weeks for Five-Bedroom Farmhouse
This Chevy Chase farmhouse was constructed in 1918 and has features both rustic and contemporary. Its large front porch is flanked by flagstone-base pillars which match the materiality of the living room fireplace. The eat-in kitchen shares space with the family room, and paned glass doors in both rooms open into the spacious fenced-in backyard. Several of the rooms have built-in shelving units and windows in a variety of shapes.
- Full Listing: 6152 31st Street NW (map)
- Price: $1.45 million
- Bedrooms: Five
- Bathrooms: 4.5
- Year Built: 1918
- Days on Market: 38

“Soho Style” Loft Sells in Seventeen Days
On the tonier side of Northwest, this Logan Circle loft apartment went under contract in just under three weeks. The one-bedroom unit boasts 15-foot ceilings in its semi-industrial interior, with extra-long windows on an exposed brick wall bringing light into both the main living area and the upper bedroom level. Other industrial design elements include the patterned concrete ceiling, exposed ductwork and slatted staircase.
- Full Listing: 1401 R Street NW, #205 (map)
- Price: $569,000
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
- Square Footage: 740

Seven Days for Seven Chandeliers
While this Rosedale rowhouse contains an impressive seven chandeliers, there are plenty of other interesting architectural features that explain why it went under contract in a week. A standalone wood-burning brick fireplace separates the otherwise open formal dining room from the living room, where an arched entryway with built-in shelving and cabinetry leads to the eat-in kitchen. Upstairs, the second bedroom has an attached bonus room; downstairs is a partially-finished basement.
