In this installment of Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks at three recently-featured homes that went under contract in times ranging from 48 hours to a week.
Gone in 48 Hours in Hill East
No open house was needed to sell this Hill East rowhouse. With a basement that is licensed to function as a one-bedroom rental unit, the home went under contract this weekend after we featured it on Friday. Its interior is open without being one-dimensional, with a raised living room on the main floor. Natural light streams throughout the house from the many windows and frosted skylight above the second floor landing.
- Full Listing: 107 15th Street SE (map)
- Price: $769,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Square Feet: 1,344
- Days on Market: Two
- Listing Agent: Dare Johnson, Compass
Two Porches in Seven Days
The buyer of this recently-renovated semi-detached rowhouse will be able to enjoy early fall from this corner home’s two covered porches. The house blends the modern and the traditional, from its exterior, which is typical of the adjacent Fort Totten and Petworth neighborhoods, to the way the wide-arched doorways throughout the interior are used to create open flow on the main floor.
- Full Listing: 260 Gallatin Street NW (map)
- Price: $810,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Three
- Year Built: 1937
- Days on Market: Seven
- Listing Agent: John Walker, Keller Williams Realty Falls Church
Quaint Cleveland Park Cottage Gone in Six Days
This newly-renovated Cleveland Park cottage was a market rarity; built in 1929 from a home kit, the house had remained in the same family since its construction. The deceptively diminutive house features a sunroom and a large rear patio that overlooks a wooded area, as well as several original details like a stone fireplace, exposed beams and quirky built-ins. With over 1,700 square feet of living space, the house found a buyer in just under a week.
- Full Listing: 3024 Macomb Street NW (map)
- Price: $1,190,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Square Feet: 1,723
- Year Built: 1929
- Days on Market: Six
- Listing Agent: Christie-Anne Weiss, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
