A Two-Day Turn-Around for Tuscan-Modern Co-Op

This 480 square-foot studio in Dupont Circle spent only two days on the market before going under contract. The unit, configured into a series of narrow spaces that each enjoy windows, marries rustic Tuscan finishes with a modernized approach to efficiency, employing a sleek built-in wall unit in the main living area to provide storage hidden behind frosted doors and a lengthwise Murphy bed. On the other side of a tiled foyer, an arched doorway leads to a galley kitchen with mosaic tile flooring, butcher block countertops and plank shelving. The bathroom also has plank shelving and houses a full-size washer/dryer. A frameless glass shower is finished with pebble tilework that extends out of the shower into the sink area.

Six Days on the Market for Truxton Circle Two-Bedroom

Given its location at the convergence of several popular neighborhoods (Shaw, Truxton Circle, Bloomingdale and Ledroit Park), it is unsurprising that this two-story two-bedroom went under contract in six days. The end-unit rowhouse is appointed with several eye-catching brick details both along its façade and throughout its interior. The open main level, in the living and dining area, is deep and has an exposed brick wall with iron star bolts and ends with a tiled, angled kitchen with a narrow window and a backdoor. The upstairs landing accommodates a bonus sitting area, and the expansive master suite has an exposed brick accent wall with an iron star bolt and built-in corner shelving. The rear brick patio is also bordered in brick and seamlessly segues into a deep garage with alley access.

A Week on the Market for Brookland Manor

Tucked just blocks away and around the corner from the Monroe Street Market strip, this nearly 3,200 square-foot red brick Colonial stands apart from the typical rowhouse stock in the Brookland neighborhood and, accordingly, went under contract a week after listing. Just inside, the family room has a white brick fireplace and a door to a small office/sitting room with double exposure and an exposed brick accent wall. The kitchen has a subway-tiled accent wall, farmhouse-style cabinetry and a small marble breakfast island and has access to a screened-in porch. With its cove ceiling, the uppermost floor is entirely occupied by the master suite. The house also has a sunroom and a lower level with rec room and the fifth bedroom. The large surrounding lot has a multi-tiered backyard and a side patio with concentric circles of brick.
