Under Contract: A Patch of Green in Adams Morgan and One of a Kind in Cabin John
This edition of Under Contract revisits three recently-featured listings — including a small triangular lot in Adams Morgan — that found buyers in three, five and seven days.
Stacked Sunrooms and Child's Play
Over in Shepherd Park, this renovated Dutch Colonial comes with more square footage than the record suggests and has plenty of kid-friendly space, which probably helped it find a buyer in under a week. A recent addition to the home created an expanded kitchen large enough to fit the dining room inside. On the main level, a solarium-style playroom sits off the living room; a similarly sunroom-like office is just above on the second floor. Additional found square footage is throughout the finished basement, which creates a huge rec room that isn't in the tax records. A deck off the kitchen has green space on two sides, and the backyard concludes with an eye-catching playhouse.
- Full Listing: 1413 Floral Street NW (map)
- Price: $799,500
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Square Feet: 1,704
- Year Built: 1926

One of a Kind in Cabin John
A few blocks from the C&O Canal, this Cabin John house with a front deck and a unique interior went under contract in three days. Interesting angles abound throughout the main level, which has a sprawling, open layout and a pitched ceiling. The hardwood floors are arranged in a giant chevron that points toward the nearly all-white, tiled kitchen that forms an octagon. Steps away, a hexagon-shaped enclosure conceals the skylit master suite, which is prefaced by a separate office and also has a bedroom-sized custom walk-in closet. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom on the second floor. The expansive backyard has a shed and a koi pond.
- Full Listing: 6530 78th Street (map)
- Price: $1,129,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Square Feet: 2,232
- Year Built: 1913
- Days on Market: Three

457 Square-Foot Lot Gone in Seven Days
There isn't much to see for this recently-featured listing of a vacant lot. The small triangular site on the southern edge of Adams Morgan at Florida and V Streets went on the market earlier this month and went under contract in a week. The site is zoned RA-2, which allows by-right moderate-density residential construction. However, the size and configuration of the site make it doubtful that any by-right construction would be possible without relief from lot occupancy and rear yard restrictions.
- Address: 1706 Florida Avenue NW (map)
- Price: $70,000
- Square Feet: 457
- Days on Market: Seven
- Listing Agent: Farone Williams, Farone & Associates Realtors
