In this installment of Under Contract, UrbanTurf revisits two recently-featured listings that found buyers in 16 days or less — a Capitol Hill find and a Kalorama condo.
A Nearly 2,000 Square-Foot Condo
After just over two weeks on the market, this nearly 2,000 square-foot Kalorama condominium filled with natural light from double-wide doorways and oversized windows found a buyer. Bonus rooms with built-in ledges and bookcases offer extra storage space, while the mirrored kitchen backsplash faces the pass-through to the dining room, adding to the feeling of roominess in the already-large unit. An extra-long balcony has multiple access points and decorative iron railing and concrete brackets.

A Former Find Full of Found Features
This converted alleyway Capitol Hill repair shop had a few other lives before it became a home. And with owner/architect Mark Merlino affixing the home’s interior with finishes that he found on other worksites, it’s no wonder that the unique three-bedroom found a buyer in five days. Fixtures include a hodge-podge of reclaimed kitchen cabinets, collected in sets of two; decorative second-floor handrails salvaged from a backyard in Baltimore; a collection of old radiators left in the repair shop; and a set of closet doors from a demolished garage by the downtown convention center.

- Price: $1,099,999
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Three
