Under Contract: From an Adams Morgan Loft to a Forest Hills Tudor

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week's Under Contract includes a listing which went under contract after the asking price was lowered by six figures.

Best New Listings: An Industrial Adams Morgan Loft with a House-Sized Roof Deck: Figure 1

Under Contract Six Figures Under

Measuring out at almost 3,500 square feet, this Adams Morgan residence epitomizes the industrial loft aesthetic. The two-bedroom unit has extra-tall ceilings throughout in addition to exposed HVAC pipes, nearly floor-to-ceiling gridded windows, an exposed concrete pillar, and a stained concrete ceiling on the main level. A wall of built-ins sits opposite a wall of windows in the living room, while a set of four near floor-to-ceiling windows on the adjacent wall creates a sunroom-like dining area. Both the living area and the owner's suite have access to a wrap-around terrace, while the upstairs hallway floats between an open den and a door to a 1,670 square-foot roof deck. The unit spent about four months on the market and ultimately went under contract one month after the price was lowered by $100,000.

Reasonably-Priced in Lanier Heights

This Lanier Heights two-bedroom corner unit was on the market for just a week before it went under contract. Its presence in the Beaux Arts-style Clydesdale Cooperative lends the co-op a traditional aesthetic in addition to an attractive purchase price to compensate for a pricey monthly fee. A foyer with a custom walk-in closet introduces the unit, leading to the open living/dining room. The narrow galley kitchen has lacquered wood and glass cabinets, a double-basin sink and moss-colored countertops. A hexagonal bay window in the main bedroom offers enough space to accommodate multiple furniture arrangements, and the bathroom has a tiled frameless glass shower. The building is also pet-friendly.

Tudor at the End of a Forest Hills Drive

Spending just six days on the market before going under contract, this striking Tudor is located on a dead-end block in Forest Hills. The living room features built-in units framing a trio of windows on either side of the room with a brick fireplace in between. A study evokes a sunroom, with windows on three sides nestled by an L-shaped built-in unit. The wood-clad kitchen has a built-in L-shaped bench contrasting with green tiled walls and complementary tiled floors. The sizeable owner's bedroom has a stone fireplace and a pair of built-ins bookending a pair of windows. The lower level has a tiled rec room with a stone accent wall, a media console, and a tiled full bath with double vanity. The spacious backyard has a slate patio area and a garage with mounted basketball hoop.
