by UrbanTurf Staff

In this edition of Under Contract, we take a look at how quickly two homes recently featured on UrbanTurf found buyers. 


Two Days For A Mini Compound in Alexandria

The arrangement of this Alexandria home -- with one main building and two annexes that could be put to any number of uses -- resulted in a buyer coming along just 48 hours after it was listed. The primary house features a spacious patio, and inside there is a primary bedroom with a fireplace, a modern kitchen and a full bath, and the a-frame ceiling give off a country-esque feel. Large windows, skylights and sliding doors ensure that the space gets lots of light. In the back of the lot, the first annex features a living area with another full bathroom. The second annex is unfinished and would be perfect for a studio or workshop. Out back, a covered parking space features a charging port for electric vehicles.

Just Over Two Weeks For a Takoma Park Family Home 

This Takoma Park Cape Cod-style home, on the market for the first time in 50 years, found a buyer after just about 2.5 weeks. Thanks to a screened porch, sunroom and deck - there's a chance to get some sun and connect with nature, no matter the season. Though there is no typical primary suite, there are two large bedrooms, in addition to the four slightly smaller ones. A spacious main living room includes a brick fireplace and sunroom access, and a large multipurpose space in the basement would be perfect for a home gym or activity room. For storage, the home has a shed by the back deck, a large utility closet on the top story and another workshop area in the basement.

  • Bedrooms: Six
