For this year's first installment of Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks back at three recently-featured listings which went under contract in about a week to about two months.
Five Days for Efficient One-Bedroom
Getting locked down in just five days, this nearly 600 square-foot one-bedroom condo in Columbia Heights had the quickest turnaround of the listings featured today. The unit has an angular living room courtesy of a shaved-off far corner and matching ductwork above the front door. A pass-through window opens from the living room to above a breakfast bar in the kitchen, which houses a mounted combination washer/dryer. There is an open closet nook around the corner from the kitchen, and on the opposite side of the living room, a short hall leads into the spacious bedroom with double exposure.

Eight Days for Chevy Chase Bonus Space
The Chevy Chase DC colonial with the almost-symmetrical exterior spent only a few more days on the market than the one-bedroom above. The kitchen of the three-bedroom is split into two narrow volumes: the first has the sink tucked into a window alcove surrounded by cabinetry, while the second houses the refrigerator and opens into an office/bonus room. The bonus room leads into a skylit sunroom, past which a pair of garden-flanked brick stairs walk down to the rear yard and patio. On the second level, the second and third bedrooms each have double exposure and half a cove ceiling. Both the uppermost and lower levels present opportunities for a fourth bedroom, with the former serving as a bonus room with storage room attached, and the latter serving as a carpeted rec room with a red brick fireplace. The house also has a detached garage.

Over 50 Days for Former Franciscan Monastery
With more than 10,000 square feet of space across this listing, it may have been ordained for this former Franciscan Monastery abutting the Buck Branch of Cabin John Creek to spend 50-plus days on the market. The property retains abundant evidence of its former life, with Mediterranean-style architectural flourishes including marble tile floors, carved columns and brackets, rope trim, and deep archways. Several of the rooms on the main floor open onto a wrap-around deck, including a great room with exposed beams, one of the home's five ornate stone-framed fireplaces, and a series of french doors beneath lunettes along two walls. An archway-framed covered walkway descends from the house to a patio area and a former chapel building beyond, surrounded by an expansive lawn.
