Under Contract: The Two-Level Condo Edition: Figure 1

A Four-Day Sale for a Unit Full of Pairs

Tucked off Adams Morgan's main drag, this bi-level, two-bedroom condo found a buyer in just four days. The spacious main living area of the 1,480 square-foot condo is dotted with oversized windows and bookended by two wood-burning fireplaces. The first fireplace sits between floor-to-ceiling inset built-in bookcases; the other is adjacent to the interior of a turret, creating a built-in bench beneath a bay window. On the second level, the master bedroom sits under a multi-angled pitched ceiling while the second bedroom has a few angled inset built-ins and a hatch that releases a drop-down ladder, leading up to a private roof deck. Each bedroom also has an en-suite bath and the unit includes an off-street parking space.

Modernist Loft in Mount Pleasant Gone in 8 Days

Abutting Rock Creek Park in Mount Pleasant, this Weinstein & Abel-designed garden-style condo was snapped up just over a week after being listed and is packed with unique, modernist flair, prefaced by its barrel-shaped roof. A flight of stairs lead into the open, bright living room, where the double-height ceiling slants to meet a set of arch-topped, floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that open onto a balcony. Across from the multi-angular living room, which also has a fireplace, the white kitchen has a cooktop built into the breakfast bar island. A dining room just beyond is centered around a crescent-shaped window; the full bath, decked in dark slate tiling, is also on the main level and contrasts with the largely white decor of the rest of the unit. A skylit spiral staircase in the living area walks up to the loft-like sleeping area, which also enjoys a skylight.

A Converted School Loft Sells in 21 Days

This two-story loft in the historic Edmonds School near Stanton Park spent three weeks on the market before going under contract. The unit enjoys many of the interesting architectural features typical of a converted school building: exposed brick walls and columns, oversized windows, and extra-tall ceilings. Just past the entry foyer, the open concept living area is anchored by a U-shaped dichromatic kitchen with breakfast bar, quartz countertops and subway-tiled walls. Upstairs, the master suite contains a walk-in California closet and a row of clerestory windows. The clerestory windows are doubly impressive in the second bedroom, which has a double-height tray ceiling. The unit comes with an assigned surface parking space.
