In this installment of Under Contract, UrbanTurf circles back to three previously-featured listings which recently went under contract in DC, Maryland and Virginia.

Seven-Figure Arlington Three-Bedroom in Six Days

With the exception of the partially-finished basement, the nearly 2,000 square-foot interior of this three-bedroom craftsman in the Lyon Village neighborhood of Arlington enjoys abundant natural light. A standalone painted brick fireplace divides the living/family room, beneath a wall panel with a cut-through shelf. A skylit sunroom spans this leg of the house with a wall of built-in shelving. The staircase sits in the high-ceilinged kitchen, which also has a 6-burner Wolf range with hood, wine fridge, and floating cabinetry and shelving. On the main level, the owner's suite has an uninterrupted series of clerestory windows on three sides and custom closets in an en-suite bath with sauna shower. Two skylit bedrooms share the uppermost level, each with pitched ceilings with an A-frame set of built-ins surrounding a window beneath. This whole package found a buyer in just under a week.

The L-shaped kitchen has a breakfast bar, a combination washer/dryer and a generous amount of counter space beneath floating cabinets. An adjacent bar area provides a transition point to the living area, which has a corner fireplace and a custom closet behind a pair of sliding frosted doors. A pair of sliding glass doors lead out to the large patio with high walls for privacy. The unit also comes with a Murphy bed seamlessly concealed in the wall.

Four Weeks in Washington Grove

Over in the Gaithersburg suburb of Washington Grove, a town with a private beachfront lake, this cottage was originally constructed in 1875 and expanded in 1998, lending it an interesting mix of features. A shiplap accent wall sits in the dining room and a wood-planked tray ceiling sits above the kitchen. The living room has a stone, wood-burning fireplace and a steep pitched, skylit ceiling with exposed beams. The main level owner's suite has a stained glass bay window and is large enough to accommodate a sizeable seating area. On the second floor, a bonus room has skylit cove ceiling and an archtop trio of windows. The lower level has an extensive wood-working workshop, and the rear yard has a patio area, a hot tub and a carriage house. The home went under contract after about a month on the market.
