For this edition of Under Contract, UrbanTurf takes a look at two listings that were featured at the same time and went under contract within 24 hours of each other.

Split-Level House with a Split-Level Backyard

This mid-century modern house is typical of its Hollin Hills neighborhood and even has a split-level exterior, with a series of steps heading up the side of the house, onto a wooden terrace ramp and into the upward-sloping backyard with elevated patio. Inside, the white-walled living room has a paneled accent wall with black recessed fireplace, while the adjacent dining area has access to a screened-in porch. The U-shaped kitchen has butcher block countertops and a double-basin sink beneath a huge picture window. Three bedrooms share a full bath on this level, each with a wall of windows. An additional bedroom and bathroom are on the above-grade lower level, which also has a living room with a wall of windows. The 2,500 square-foot house went under contract in a week.

Six Days for a Leased Logan Circle Loft

The fact that this Logan Circle loft is currently leased was no deterrent, with the unit going under contract in just six days. Whether it ends up functioning as a primary residence or an investment property, the one-bedroom is certainly surrounded by history, located inside the Northern Exchange building, which originally housed the Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Company and the switchboard for Northeast and Northwest DC. After the building was converted into condos in 2013, this unit hit the market with 18 foot-high painted terra cotta ceilings with exposed pipes. A red brick accent wall hosts two oversized windows that flood the unit with natural light. A black industrial treaded metal staircase leads up to the open loft sleeping area, which sits above the L-shaped kitchen.
