This week’s Under Contract includes listings that found buyers in timeframes ranging from two days to three weeks.
Three Weeks at the Nexus of Three Neighborhoods
Sited on a corner lot in Bloomingdale, and just steps from LeDroit Park and Truxton Circle, this Victorian rowhouse found a buyer in 21 days. Its generous 3,400 square feet is on the larger end of the spectrum for the city's attached homes and the curvilinear interior has an outsized share of original hardwoods. These original wood finishes are particularly prominent in the living room, which has wood-paneled corner guards and built-in bookcases framing a fireplace in an ornate carved wood mantel. The home's large round turret forms part of the living area in the basement in-law suite, anchors a bright bedroom with built-ins on the second level, and creates a sizeable den in the master bedroom on the top floor.
- Full Listing: 153 T Street NW (map)
- Price: $1,450,000
- Bedrooms: Five
- Bathrooms: Four
- Square Feet: 3,410
- Year Built: 1900
- Days on Market: 21

Chevy Chase Circle House Has Seven-Day Turnaround
On the DC side of Chevy Chase, this Arts and Crafts home went under contract in about a week. The house invites you in from the street with a pathway walking up to the roomy front porch and two other pathways winding along either side, one eventually forming a side-yard slate patio before leading to the yard area. Inside, beamed ceilings run through the living room and formal dining room; the latter also has a stained-glass window and built-in buffet/china cabinet. The sun-filled white kitchen has a breakfast nook and French doors opening onto the side-yard. A wall of built-ins in the third bedroom surround a media cubby and console combination.

Rowhouse off H Street Gone in the First 48
This Victorian just off the H Street Corridor may be the quickest to find a buyer of any listing UrbanTurf has featured this year, going under contract two days after being listed. The interior of the house makes room for multiple living arrangements, with three rooms on the main level that could each vie for living space, dining space or other use. Additional extra space and amenities come courtesy of a deep rear patio, private parking pad, and lower-level rec room with half-bath. Similar to this week's slowest listing to go under contract, this house also has a turret that, while less dramatic, creates a semicircular interior nook that enlarges the room at the front of the main level and creates a bonus area in the second-floor master bedroom.
- Full Listing: 1417 G Street NE (map)
- Price: $749,495
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Square Feet: 1,982
- Year Built: 1900
- Days on Market: Two
- Listing Agents: Christopher Bulka and John Peters, Compass
