Under Contract: Turn-of-the-Century Homes Find Buyers in Seven to 24 Days: Figure 1

A Capitol Hill Original Finds a New Owner in 13 Days

Finding a buyer in just under two weeks, this classic Victorian rowhouse on Capitol Hill has an equally classic interior appointed with original woodwork everywhere you turn: the entry door with transom window, the decorative carved stair posts, the window and door framing, and the floorboards and baseboards. Just off the entry hallway, the formal dining room has an exposed-brick accent wall that houses a fireplace with ornate wood frame and mantel sitting. The half-bay window in the master bedroom creates a built-in bench.

Below Listing Price in Logan Circle

Over in Logan Circle, this detached Federal house is the oldest of this week’s featured houses and also spent the longest time on the market, as the listing price was dropped by $50,000 before it went under contract. The house has a quirky curb appeal, possessing an exterior typical of most rowhouses in the neighborhood — including wrought-iron stairs and a paved landing in lieu of a front porch — without sharing any walls with other homes. The high-ceilinged interior integrates several modern and multi-functional components, including built-in cutting boards in the basement-level kitchen and heated floors in the master bath.

  • Full Listing: 1636 13th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $999,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Feet: 1,300
  • Days on Market: 24
  • Listing Agent: Ed Carp, Continental Properties

A 1910 Truxton Circle Gem

This renovated rowhouse perfectly espouses the architectural character of its one-way street in Truxton Circle, which may have played into it finding a buyer in a week’s time. The main level has a completely open floorplan from the front bay window bonus space through to the kitchen at the rear, taking advantage of natural light from both ends of the house. This open feeling continues as you head upstairs, where the landing enjoys two skylights. The master bedroom also maximizes the space provided by the bay window and contains a wall of built-in closet space. There is also a fenced-in rear patio and parking pad.

  • Full Listing: 124 Bates Street NW (map)
  • Price: $725,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Feet: 1,360
  • Year Built: 1910
  • Days on Market: Seven
  • Listing Agent: Yianni Konstantopolulos, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
