3403 Pendleton Drive
UrbanTurf usually stays away from publishing rankings or lists…except at the end of the year when we look back at the best that DC’s residential real estate scene had to offer during the previous 12 months. So, this week we are looking at not only the best but the most intriguing and peculiar things that came across our radar over the course of 2017. Enjoy.
For the majority of us who aren’t pulling in the money for a multi-million dollar house, UrbanTurf sorted through the hundreds of more reasonably-priced listings featured on the site this year to come up with our favorite. The winner: A two-bedroom Charles Goodman-designed home in historic Hammond Wood.
The mid-century house is one of 58 in the Hammond Wood subdivision in Wheaton designed by prominent architect Charles Goodman. The house takes advantage of a southern exposure with plentiful glass, having near-floor-to-ceiling windows in both bedrooms and in the main living area, where an exposed brick wall houses the wood-burning fireplace and sits between two angular arrays of windows. The second bedroom and living area have access to the slate-paved patio alongside the stonewalled, landscaped backyard.
The whole package, along with a $319,900 listing price which is almost unheard for a two-bedroom home in DC, drew a lot of attention. The home was shown 64 times, received 8 offers (7 which were above list price), and went under contract in five days. Even after the home went under contract, listing agent Suzanne Parmet received calls to show the home.
