This edition of Under Contract includes a house near Rock Creek Park which went under contract in a week, a Bloomingdale rowhouse which spent two weeks on the market, and an Adams Morgan condo that found a buyer after 99 days.
One Week for One Block from a Park
One block from Francis G. Newlands Park and two from Rock Creek Park, this three-bedroom colonial spent just one week on the market. A centered flagstone path walks up to this Chevy Chase house, where a living room with white fireplace sits past an archway to the right and a bright formal dining room sits past an archway to the left. A sunroom and an eat-in kitchen finish out the main level, and the latter has access to the backyard where a winding flagstone path leads to a garden area with raised planters. Upstairs, one of the full bathrooms is still outfitted with the original two-basin sink and a subway-tiled step-in shower nook.

12 Days for Typical, Remixed in Bloomingdale
This Victorian rowhouse may appear typical of Bloomingdale housing stock from the exterior, but the interior puts forth a more modern interpretation. An angled fireplace suggests the edge of the living area at the front of the open concept main level. Here, the bay window nook houses a tightly spiraling stair which leads down to the separately metered one-bedroom in-law suite. Back upstairs, the dining area is distinguished by a tray ceiling made all the more dramatic by a black-painted recess. The deep kitchen at the back of the level forgoes an island, leaving a clear path to a rear covered deck which steps down to a patio/parking pad behind a garage door. Off the skylit upstairs landing, the high-ceilinged owner's suite has a bay window seating nook adjacent to a wall of built-in shelving and a desk.

99 Days in the Washington Heights Historic District
Located in a contributing building to a historic district, this remodeled two-bedroom condo in Adams Morgan bridges the gap between the traditional and the contemporary. The unit opens into a wide hallway facing a set of wooden pocket doors, sliding open to reveal a living room with two weathered exposed brick walls. Another set of pocket doors open the living room to a dining area with an exposed brick accent wall. The kitchen lies just on the other side of a balcony door with transom window and an expansive island with breakfast bar. A frosted glass door in the hall conceals a deep walk-in pantry with walls of built-in shelving. The price went down $30,000 before the unit went under contract three months after being listed.
