Under Contract: Eleven Days or Less: Figure 1

Eleven Days in the Atlas District

This two-bedroom house on the cusp of two of DC’s most desirable neighborhoods — Capitol Hill and H Street — found a buyer in eleven days. The semi-detached Federal house boasts a lot of small details throughout its 1,540 square feet, from the tiled entry foyer and spa-style bathroom to the exposed brick backsplash in the kitchen. An abundance of oversized windows fill the house with light, while the narrow stone-paved backyard is also deep and has a rear gate leading to an alley-accessible parking space and storage shed.

  • Price: $735,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Feet: 1,540

A Half Mile Away Sold in Half the Time

Just further east down 9th Street is another semi-detached two-bedroom Federal rowhouse — and this one was snapped up in half the time as its peer on K Street. Although this two-story house has less square footage than the aforementioned, it compensates with curb appeal courtesy of a large patio area and spacious, landscaped side-yard. Natural light streams through the house from multiple angles, via large windows, several skylights and glass exterior doors. Subway-tiled kitchen and bathroom finishes add a dash of city style.

  • Bathrooms: 2.5

Bringing the Outdoors Inside in Chevy Chase

On the other side of town, this stuccoed Chevy Chase Craftsman combines indoor and outdoor living across its four floors. A terrace runs the length of the second floor, while large porches are at both the front and rear of the house. Hardwoods aren’t just for floors here, but also frame entryways throughout much of the house, as well as other built-in features like pocket doors and a breakfast bench and large island in the kitchen. The home found a buyer in seven days.
