This installment of Under Contract revisits two recently-featured listings that both went under contract in just over a week.
Nine Days for an Acre in Alexandria
Located on a corner lot in Alexandria, this 5,500 square-foot house hit the market for the first time not too long ago and went under contract nine days later. A skylit foyer introduces the interior, and a couple of steps down, the great room has two panel fireplaces made of Maryland-sourced stone on opposite walls. There are also exposed beams beneath the vaulted ceiling, and three 20 foot-high dormer-like projections above three sets of paned french doors that open onto the heated lanai. This semi-outdoor space is also accessible from the tiled kitchen and the owner's suite, which spans the width of the house and has built-in shelving on either side of a closet, a raised brick fireplace, and a dressing room-like closet. The lower level has a wood-paneled office, storage, a studio, and a sauna, and the property also includes a kidney-shaped outdoor pool.

An archway in the corner of the living room beside the kitchen marks the entry from the L-shaped hall, which has hooks built in beneath a corner ledge. The unit is also pet-friendly.
