Bountiful Backyards Under Contract in Nine Days or Less
This week's edition of Under Contract includes three recently-featured listings from across the DC area which each have impressive outdoor spaces and went under contract in nine days or less.
Indoor-Outdoor Living in Sligo Park Hills
Going under contract nine days after hitting the market, this four-bedroom house in the Sligo Hills section of Silver Spring enjoys a grove-like setting evocative of its neighborhood namesake. Some of the most impressive spaces of the house offer an indoor/outdoor experience, from the patio-esque front porch to its wooded lot. A rear screened-in-porch has a vaulted ceiling with exposed wooden trusses, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing views of the lush side and rear yards. Just outside the porch, stairs lead down to a deck which stands deeper into the back lot. Down another set of stairs, a third deck has a pergola and direct access to the lower level, which has a rec room and bedroom.

Seven Days for Solar Panels in Mount Rainier
This solar panel-topped Mount Rainier bungalow is efficient in both energy usage and floor plan, making for an affordable five-bedroom which seems more spacious than its 1,400 square feet. The house has an updated open-concept main level with front-to-back sightlines, featuring a wood-burning fireplace in the living area. Beyond the dining area, the kitchen has a double-basin farmhouse sink and a breakfast bar above an integrated cooktop beneath a chef's hood. The owner's bedroom sits beneath a cove ceiling on the top level, the ceiling sloping to half its height to fit in a built-in bureau; a semi-elliptical built-in sits midway up another wall. The spacious backyard has an octagonal wooden deck, a shed and a tree swing, and the house also has a lower level with kitchenette, full bath and laundry room.
- Full Listing: 4306 29th Street (map)
- Price: $449,000
- Bedrooms: Five
- Bathrooms: Three
- Square Feet: 1,405

Eight Days Until Contract in Langdon
This detached three-bedroom in Langdon offers a similar proposition as its above counterpart in Mount Rainier: a house which offers more potential than its square footage suggests. On the main level, the living and dining rooms share the left side of the house, each enjoying double exposure. A three-wall kitchen shares tiled floors with an adjacent breakfast nook, which has access to a powder room and to the backyard. The heavily vegetated lot creates a leafy backyard with a circular brick-paved patio area, trees and gardens. Each of the three bedrooms also each have double exposure, and the house has both a private driveway and an unfinished basement for additional storage space or eventual expansion. The home found a buyer in just over a week.

- Price: $575,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Square Feet: 1,376
- Year Built: 1910
