For Under Contract this week, UrbanTurf revisits three recently-featured listings, including two in Chevy Chase that found buyers in six days.
Two Weeks-Plus in Barracks Row

Six Days for Space in Chevy Chase
Across town in Chevy Chase, this traditional brick colonial has spacious rooms and, on a per square foot basis, an affordable price for the neighborhood, which may have been one of the main reasons it went under contract in less than a week. The living room sits to the right of the entry foyer, through a wide archway, and has a fireplace. The kitchen has a breakfast bar beneath suspended shelves, overlooking the adjacent dining room. A screened-in porch with shiplap ceiling is also on the main level, attached to stairs leading down to a slate-paved patio and deep backyard surrounded by shrubbery and mature trees. The owner's suite has double exposure and a deep walk-in closet, while the top floor is an expansive additional bedroom or bonus room under a cove ceiling.

Seven-Bedroom Finds a Buyer in 6 Days
Just a few blocks away, this Chevy Chase home may have less square footage than the above, but boasts seven bedrooms and plenty of interior architectural interest. Off the foyer, a set of French doors open into the living room, where an inset gas fireplace is sandwiched by windows above square built-ins. A bay window adds space to the formal dining room, while an L-shaped built-in in the family room framing the base of what serves as a desk in the abutting, naturally-illuminated breakfast room. The adjacent kitchen has a double Viking stove with a hood, concrete countertops and a stainless steel island. The owner's bedroom sits under a cove ceiling and has both a bay window and a built-in media console, while the en-suite bath places the sink near a dressing area and has a floor-to-ceiling tiled shower and a glass-enclosed tub.
