Under Contract: 120 Hours or Less

by Nena Perry-Brown

The latest installment of Under Contract revisits three very-recently-featured listings that all went under contract in five days or less.


Five Days for Brookland Farmhouse with Accessory Building

If the over 2,300 square feet in this Brookland farmhouse was not enough space, the property offers 300 square feet of bonus space courtesy of a backyard accessory building with its own heating and cooling. The main house has a formal sitting room with a shallow bay window in addition to a family room. The dining room has a decorative brick fireplace with exposed chimney, and the kitchen has a farmhouse basin sink, white subway tile backsplash, quartz countertops, a pantry, and decorative tile floors. The upstairs landing has space for an office nook, and a lanai spans the side of the house on the main level. The house also comes with a driveway and a detached wooden deck. It went under contract in five days.

Four Days for a Capitol Hill Classic

The location of this early 20th-century rowhouse — diagonal from the new Capitol Hill Safeway — may have been one of the selling points that led to it going under contract in four days. Past its unassuming exterior, the updated interior is open concept in the living/dining room, with a set of built-in shelves above cabinets in the former area sitting across from a corner brick panel wood-burning fireplace with ledge hearth. The brick wraps around the corner to form an accent wall in the dining area a couple of steps above, and sliding glass doors here lead out to a platform deck. The owner's bedroom has a skylight and the narrowest of the bedrooms also has pew-like wooden shelves with scroll brackets mounted on a painted brick wall. The gravel backyard also has planting areas, two sheds, and a secured parking pad.

  • Bathrooms: 1.5

Four Days on the Market in Falls Church

Also lasting only four days on the market, this cute mid-century split level home enjoys an almost-third-acre lot, conveniently located just off the I-495-66 interchange in Falls Church. Its efficiently laid-out interior includes a living room with an extra-tall quartet of windows and, on the adjacent wall, built-in shelving above cabinets bookending a window. A few stairs up, the family room has a floating electric fireplace between marble slabs, and on the opposite side of the level, the kitchen has a breakfast bar island with storage and a hood above the stove. A back door between the rooms leads out to a paver patio, and around the corner, the kitchen-accessible side yard includes a shed. The carpeted lower level rec room also has dual access to the backyard.
