Under Contract: A Week in Wesley Heights; A Month in Palisades

  • July 25th

by UrbanTurf Staff

This edition of Under Contract features three homes recently featured on UrbanTurf that found buyers in anywhere from a week to a month. 


Three Weeks for a Custom City Center Condo 

This one-bedroom City Center condo spent about three weeks on the market before going under contract last week. An island in the middle of the main room is made of reclaimed wood from a bowling lane, and on the other end of the living area there is a bio-ethanol fireplace and a custom wood-paneled entertainment system. The bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom, is Urban Turf's favorite feature of the space. A built-in padded headboard nook with bedside tables is reminiscent of what someone might find in a hotel. The room is completed by a closet system that lines the opposite wall. Building amenities include a fitness room, fire pits and rooftop grilling stations.

Just Under a Week For a Contemporary Wesley Heights Home

Designed by locally-renowned architect Mark McInturff, this five-bedroom house in Wesley Heights found a buyer in six days.

The primary bedroom suite comes with a full walk-in closet, a heated bathroom floor and a marble waterfall shower. There is a large room that could be perfect for a game space in the basement, and the back deck attaches to the kitchen and overlooks the backyard.

About a Month For a Nantucket Cottage in the Palisades 

This Palisades cottage, with a decidedly New England feel, took just under a month to find a buyer. With its wooden shingles and unique architectural features, the home would fit right in in Massachusetts. UrbanTurf’s favorite features are the roof deck and the home's detached studio in the backyard. The studio is fully finished with carpet, built-in shelves, an artistically curved wooden ceiling with a fan and large windows. The basement is fully finished and can serve as an in-law suite since it has its own private entrance. The screened porch on the back of the home leads to the fully fenced backyard, and there is also an electric car charger in the front of the house.

  • Full Listing: 2408 Chain Bridge Road NW (map
  • Price: $1,295,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Feet: 2,572
  • Year Built: 1927
  • Days on Market: 26
  • Listing Agent: Jenn Smira, Compass
