The latest installment of Under Contract includes a blink-and-you-missed-it listing that went under contract the day after it went on the market.

A Victorian on a Discount

After a $64,000 price drop, this three-bedroom Victorian in the Kensington Historic District went under contract on day 22. The house offers some of the classic architectural features associated with the style, like a wraparound porch and a turret that creates a bay nook on three levels. The main level has a narrow office/bonus room with a box window, and the lower level has a series of bonus nooks off its rec room. A bonus room on the top level has a vaulted ceiling with a brick column, salvaged floors, and window seats built into a series of nooks.

Next Day in Truxton

This Truxton Circle rowhouse had enough compelling features -- from its rooftop solar array to its lower-level in-law suite -- to be snapped up the day after it hit the market. In between, the house has weathered brick walls throughout, and the living room has a bay window and corner fireplace. The dining area has a mudroom-style built-in unit and outdoor deck access. There is also a small balcony off the owner's bedroom.

Two Days in Upper Chevy Chase

Another three-bedroom that went under contract very quickly is in Upper Chevy Chase and comes with a lot of spaces ripe for customization.

There is also a built-in corner china cabinet in the dining room, and the owner's bedroom has a window seat built in between a pair of closets. The house also has a wide front porch and a partially-finished basement.
