In this week's Under Contract, we highlight two homes -- one that found a buyer in under a week and one that was on the market for about a month and a half.


Four Days For The Pink Door in Hill East

This pink-doored two-bedroom home in Hill East was on the market for about 96 hours before it went under contract. The listing features a main level with exposed brick, a cozy living area with a bar nook, and a kitchen with ample storage. The second bedroom has some clever design options, such as a built-in Murphy bed and desk depending on how the new owner wants to use it. The back patio is thoughtfully set up for entertaining, and solar panels reduce both the carbon footprint and utility bills.

  • Price: $649,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1922

Six Weeks For a Robert Gurney With Potomac Views

Overlooking the Potomac River in Glen Echo, this contemporary four-bedroom designed by architect Robert Gurney spent about six weeks on the market. Visitors enter into an  elliptical tower clad in lead coated copper, and a curved maple staircase leads to the upper level, which features a skylight and an exposed metal walkway instead of a hall. The primary suite occupies its own wing with a private office, a butterfly frame roof, a wood-burning fireplace, a spa bath with concrete counters and a double dressing room. Floor-to-ceiling windows are found throughout the home and offer great views from the open living space on the main floor, which leads to an enclosed patio area. The bottom level features a fitness center with an indoor hot tub, sauna and a movie theater with staggered lounge seating.
