Eight Days for a Tesla-Compatible Two-Bedroom

This rowhouse sits just around the corner from the U Street Corridor and offers an ultra-contemporary bookend to its block. The interior was renovated by Fowlkes Studio and has a clean, linear aesthetic throughout. The open concept main level has a door to the side yard between the living and dining areas and a white-painted brick accent wall. The accent wall doubles as the backsplash in the kitchen, which also has a Quartzite waterfall island and waterfall countertop, a panel-concealed refrigerator, and glass french doors that open onto the fenced-in slate rear patio. The upstairs landing has a skylight framed with slatted wood, and the two bedrooms share a skylight full bath. The house also has a parking pad with a Tesla charging port. The home found a buyer in just over a week.

Impressive, Inside and Out, in Georgetown

After nearly seven months on the market, this recently-renovated, 8,500 square-foot detached Georgetown home has gone under contract. The eight-bedroom house has an impressive exterior, with stone lions standing sentinel on either side of the entrance. The interior living space is abundant, with the main level anchored by a sunroom that spans the entire floor. The finished basement has checkerboard flooring, a wall of built-in shelving, a built-in bar, an extensive wine cellar, and a second kitchen with two farmhouse sinks. The property also has an elevator, a spacious limestone patio with pergola and a two-car attached garage. The listing price was lowered from $7.99 million two weeks ago and the house went under contract shortly thereafter.

Affordability and Archtops on East Capitol Street

This semi-detached three-bedroom spent just six days on the market before going under contract. Its location on an incline overlooking East Capitol Street, one of the city's quadrant-defining thoroughfares, likely contributed to its attractive price, and the house has plenty of equally attractive features and conveniences. Located four blocks from Benning Road Metro station, the house has two entrances, including a side archtop door that opens into a generous foyer with the original mirrored door to the basement stairs. The front bedroom upstairs has symmetrical pairs of closets and archtop alcoves, and the second bedroom has a wall of built-ins. The house also has a large front porch, a partially-finished basement, and a huge multi-level yard with rear parking pad.
