This week’s installment of Above Asking revisits a previously-featured listing for which a buyer paid more than $100,000 above asking price.
A Six Figure Premium for a Logan Circle Prototype
Just off Logan Circle, this detached Victorian epitomizes all the interior and exterior features one associates with the neighborhood — in addition to having a prominent corner location. A round turret distinguishes the house from the outside and creates a large circular bay inside, creating bonus seating and display space in the living room and master bedroom. A smaller rectangular bay sits adjacent to a built-in china cabinet in the dining room while extending the second bedroom. A trap door at the top of the stairwell provides access to a multi-level roof deck while serving as a skylight above the stairs. The basement can function as a one-bedroom in-law suite. The home hit the market in March, and sold for about $100,000 above asking within two weeks of being listed.
