In this edition of Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks at two recently-featured rowhomes on opposite sides of the city — one that sold in six days and one that sold in 27 days.
Half-and-Half House in Shaw
This half-traditional, half-contemporary rowhouse in Shaw found a buyer in less than a week. Its front exterior is not unlike many rowhouses in the neighborhood, with a rectangular bay that enlarges both the living room and the master bedroom. The rear of the home has a more modern spin, with a minimalist facade and a strip of lawn surrounded by rectilinear finishes: a flagstone patio bordered by wood-planked benches and fencing.

Traditional Capitol Hill Rowhouse
This narrow Victorian rowhouse spent nearly a month on the market despite being in the high-demand neighborhood of Capitol Hill. Its more classical interior features tiered crown molding, restored hardwood flooring and built-in bookcases astride a fireplace that resembles a vintage radio. The house doesn’t lack for modern conveniences, however, boasting a large wine refrigerator in the kitchen.

- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: 1.5
