This edition of Above Asking includes three recently-featured listings, two of which went for six figures over listing price.
A Four-Bedroom Five Grand Above Asking
Despite selling for $5,000 above asking price, this Cape Code in the Woodmoor neighborhood of Silver Spring remains relatively affordable. The lush front yard has a patio landing area next to the stairs, and the deep fenced-in backyard has a shed on one side and an open cabin-like structure on the other. The house enters into the living room, with a double-wide entryway into the eat-in kitchen, and the family room beyond has triple exposure with sliding glass doors out to the rear deck and a door to the side yard on the adjacent wall. Two bedrooms on the main level each have double exposure and share a full bath, while the other two bedrooms are upstairs, each under cove ceilings and sharing the second full bath.

$125,000 Above Asking for Former Corner Store
Over in Stanton Park, this corner rowhouse shows off its former life as a corner store, featuring a storefront-style bay and a transom window embossed with "Johnston's Market 1915-1944" above the front door. The open main level of the retrofit three-bedroom has an exposed brick wall and an archtop fireplace, and the adjacent dining area has an original built-in wooden meat locker-turned-wet-bar. Tiled floors and white-painted ceiling beams span the white kitchen and breakfast room; the latter also houses the skylit stairway along an exposed brick wall with storage and a powder room built beneath. The upstairs landing prominently features exposed brick archways, the owner's bedroom also has an arched brick fireplace, and another bedroom has a frosted leaded window letting light in from the landing.

The Premium is Right for Brookland Farmhouse
As impressive as the premium was for the previous listing, this four-bedroom Brookland farmhouse sold for an even heftier — and strategically odd-numbered — premium of $144,577. Sitting atop an ivy-covered hillside, the house has a garden-framed backyard with a brick-paved patio and a detached two-car garage. Along the left side of the house, a column-framed entryway separates the front living room from the formal dining room. The galley kitchen contrasts grey countertops with white cabinetry and leads to a breakfast room with a closet wall and triplet window. On the second story, an open family room has a bowed wall and a set of built-ins. The uppermost level is split between two rooms beneath skylit cove ceilings, and the lower level has a full bedroom with built-in shelving and cubbies.
