This edition of Under Contract is a Best New Listings déjà vu, revisiting three houses which were listed on the same day and each went under contract in eight days or less. 

Six Days on the Market for the Library Loft House

This Friendship Heights four-bedroom offers an abundance of shelving space, making it an ideal house for a bibliophile. Shelving surrounds the entryway to the living room. The nearly double-sized third bedroom has a wall of built-ins and also has balcony access. The uppermost level has a loft-like aesthetic and wedges several series of built-in shelving partitions beneath a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, also taking advantage of an archtop window and a skylit office nook. The house also features a detached garage, a spacious rear brick patio and an angular porch, which wraps around toward an octagonal screened-in porch that creates a balcony for the owner's bedroom above. It found a buyer less than a week after hitting the market.

A Bay-Filled Brookland Victorian

Over in Brookland, this detached Victorian went under contract in just over a week. The living room gains bonus space from a bay window, a feature prominent in the adjacent formal dining room, which also has a painted brick fireplace on the opposite wall. The C-shaped kitchen nook is attached to a breakfast room, leading out to a screened-in porch. The upstairs landing has a bay window nook abutting the staircase, and the spacious carpeted basement has white-painted brick walls, exposed beams and utilities, a full bath, and a separate laundry and storage room. The house also has a 930 square-foot attic and a deep backyard with garden areas and a 250 square-foot detached garage at the back of the lot.
