In this installment of Under Contract, UrbanTurf revisits three recently-featured listings which went under contract within two weeks.
Six Days for a Brookland Sandbox
This Brookland bungalow makes great use of its yard space, particularly in the rear, which has a two-car parking pad and where a sandbox play area is wedged between the garage and a fence. Inside, columns sit on either side of the doorway to the living room, creating built-in shelving cubbies opposite a stone fireplace. Wood paneled french doors lead into the formal dining room, which also has access to an office with recessed shelving built into a nook. The tiled kitchen, finished with white cabinets and butcher block countertops, is divided on either side of the next room and features an integrated stove beneath a stainless steel hood, and a series of windows which create a sunroom-like nook. Three brightly-lit bedrooms each have walk-in closets and share a full bath upstairs, while a fourth bedroom sits in the tiled basement. The listing found a buyer in six days.

14 Days for Four-Bedroom Bungalow
Going under contract in two weeks, this affordable four-bedroom bungalow in Mount Rainier offers square footage similar to its above counterpart. The house has a full front porch with stone pillars, and has a traditional interior maintaining the original stained wood molding and window/door trim throughout the main level. The living room walks into the dining room through a double-wide doorway on one side, and has a door to a family room on the other. The dining room has a trio of windows across from the pillared archway off the hall. The farmhouse-style U-shaped kitchen also contains the backdoor to a fenced-in backyard with a tiled patio area and shed. Two of the bedrooms share a full bath on this level, while the other two bedrooms share a bath upstairs, both with pitched ceilings and built-in benches spanning a wall beneath a window. The house also has a spacious basement with tiled flooring and a separate laundry room.

Eight Days in the Palisades
This 19th-century farmhouse in the Palisades went under contract in just over a week. An entry vestibule gives the illusion of an extended living room, where a white fireplace protrudes from the wall. The kitchen has a breakfast bar island and shelving built-in next to a window seat bench. One bedroom on the second level has a sitting room and an en-suite bath with double sink, while another bedroom has floating built-in shelving and access to a private balcony. On the next landing, a series of oversized windows is cradled by a 90 degree-angled built-in bench-and-bookcase. Two bedrooms on this level both have cove ceilings and share a full bath with a bubble skylight. A lower level rec room has a fireplace, plus glass french doors out to the backyard, which has a pool deck and an octagonal gazebo.
