Under Contract: Finding a Buyer in 24 Hours on G Street

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week, Under Contract revisits three previously-featured listings which sold in anywhere from one to 51 days.

Best New Listings: A Hidden One-Bedroom off H Street and a Victorian in Shaw: Figure 2

One-Bedroom Rowhouse Comes Out of Hiding

Located on a hidden block just off the H Street Corridor, this flat-fronted one-bedroom rowhouse spent just under two months on the market before finding a buyer. Despite being just 792 square feet, the interior of the house doesn't appear so small and is laid out efficiently, entering into a living room with a modern built-in shelving nook. Exposed brick extends from the living room and houses the floating staircase, which promotes the open feel of the layout and creates a small dining nook across from the L-shaped kitchen with under-counter lighting and breakfast bar. The bedroom occupies the upstairs landing, a built-in shelf floating beneath the 11-foot vaulted ceiling and creating wrap-around storage. The house also has an attached shed, accessible from the deep rear brick patio.

  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Square Feet: 792
  • Year Built: 1930

Under Contract in a Day on G Street

This three-bedroom semi-detached rowhouse in Near Northeast went under contract about as quickly as any listing could, with a contract pending the day after it went on the market. The interior layout of the house has several interesting features, like the sunken dining area with marble floors two steps below the adjacent living room with bay window. Past a deep archway on the main level, the L-shaped kitchen has a fireplace between an oversized window and the back door, both of which have archtop stained-glass transom windows. Upstairs, the owner's bedroom has two skylights in addition to  a fireplace between two oversized windows with archtop transoms; the hallway is also skylit. The lower level of the house provides plenty of storage space, half of which is dedicated to a wine cellar.

  • Bathrooms: 2.5

Close to the Border in Barnaby Woods

Over in Barnaby Woods between the Maryland border, Rock Creek Park and Pinehurst Parkway Park, this yellow four-bedroom house went under contract in 10 days. The staircase walks straight into the foyer, which sits three steps below the living room, with its classic white fireplace. A built-in wood-topped counter at chair rail-height not only separates the living room from the dining room, but continues to follow the wall around the corner, framing the window-lined family room and providing additional shelving both atop and below. Across from the family room, the skylit kitchen has decorative tiling and also enjoys extra light from a triangular clerestory window and an adjacent oversized picture window. Two of the bedrooms are also skylit, including the owner's suite, which has a fireplace, a walk-in closet with laundry chute and an archtop window above french doors to a juliet balcony. The rear yard is primarily brick-paved and has a koi pond and a detached porch with a bench swing.
