The $150,000 Solar Panel Premium

Not only did this spacious, solar-powered LeDroit Park rowhouse go under contract in two days, it also commanded $151,000 above the listing price. The interior has an unconventional layout, entering on a T-shaped front room with a bay window and a corner fireplace opposite a corner built-in cabinet. A U-shaped kitchen with a breakfast bar sits at the back of the main level, past the stairs and a room with a stepped wall. The master bedroom, with an exposed brick wall and bay window, lies upstairs behind a set of French doors. The home's 2,700 square feet also includes an English basement that serves as a full in-law suite.

The $115,000 Cleveland Park Premium

In Cleveland Park, the ample and attractive outdoor space is the star of this semi-detached home that fetched $115,000 above its listing price. A flagstone path winds from the front walk around the side of the house to the rear yard, where the stone creates stepped seating appointed with small garden areas throughout. The interior of the house balances a traditional layout with open flow, going from a living room to a dining room/kitchen divided by a breakfast bar. Next is a sun-filled family room that opens onto the rear patio. The master bedroom has a nook across from its five windows that perfectly accommodates the bed and a spa-like en-suite bath with skylights, wood plank beams and a glass-enclosed shower and toilet on either side of the sink. The house also has a skylit finished attic.
