Under Contract in One Week, Two Weeks, and One Month

  • March 2nd 2020

by Nena Perry-Brown

This installment of Under Contract highlights three recently-featured listings that went under contract in times ranging from one week to one month. 

Two Weeks on the Corner in Brookland

In the Little Rome area, this quaint corner farmhouse went under contract in just over two weeks. A lintel-and-post frames the entryway between the living and dining rooms, and the rooms are also distinguished by their rectangular and octagonal tray ceilings. The three bedrooms share a bath upstairs, each with a half-cove ceiling, and one of the bedrooms is also connected to a sunroom-like den. The tiled-floor lower level is well-suited for short-term rental use, including a full bath and a wet bar with breakfast bar peninsula. Along with the front porch, there is a covered deck out back above a paved patio area and a sloped lawn with fire pit.

A Week on Wilson Boulevard

This bright two-bedroom Virginia Square condo spent the least time on the market of this week's under-contract listings. The open-concept main area enjoys a wall of windows, along with exposed HVAC and track lighting. The kitchen faces the windows with grey subway tile backsplash contrasting with woodgrain cabinetry and a breakfast bar island-base. Each of the two bedrooms has oversized windows, and the owner's en-suite bath has a double sink beneath a huge frameless mirror, and a tiled spa tub next to the shower stall. The condo also comes with a storage unit, a secured parking space, and rooftop views of the Washington Monument.

A Month for Adaptive Reuse and a Laundry Duo

One month and two price reductions later, this semi-detached house in University Heights has gone under contract. Past the front porch and throughout the interior, the house's original materials were adaptively-reused for a smart renovation. Refinished hardwood flooring is prominent on the main level, and one-time pocket doors between the living room and eat-in kitchen are now transformed into barn doors. There is newer flooring behind the kitchen's breakfast bar island, extending into an adjacent laundry nook and a step-down in front of the backdoor. There is a second, kitchenette-like laundry area on the finished lower level, which also has a bedroom and a full, beveled subway-tiled bath with backlit mirror. The house also has a detached garage at the rear of the backyard, fronting the alley.
