In this week's Under Contract, we highlight homes that found buyers in just a couple days and others that took a bit longer to sell. 


Two Days Off U Street

This four-story townhouse just south of the U Street Corridor was featured in Best New Listings last Friday and had already found a buyer by the time we published. Dark blue walls and cabinetry throughout the house contrast well with the white wood finishes and there are lots of fun details, including tiles that spell out "You Look Good" in one of the showers and rainbow stairs leading to the basement. The main floor layout is open and includes drop-down Edison lighting, a fireplace with recessed areas for shelving or cabinets, a bathroom with teal detailing and an elongated kitchen that leads to a patio and open-air garage. UrbanTurf loves the sitting area on the upper level that includes a window seat overlooking Wallach Street, another fireplace with built-in shelving and a recessed nook that fits a couch. The primary suite takes up the entirety of the top floor with a bathroom with dual vanity sinks and a private roof deck.

This three-bedroom Cape Cod, expanded about fifteen years ago to include a spacious kitchen, dining area, a sunlit screen porch, and two new bathrooms on the second floor, went under contract after 19 days on the market.

Outside, there is a landscaped garden with fruit trees and a vegetable patch, as well as a number of patio spaces.

About Five Months For a Modern McLean Mansion

This brand new home in McLean hit the market last fall, and found a buyer late last week. The entire east wing is taken up by the primary suite, which includes a private terrace, two walk-in closets, a soaking tub, marble accents, and a fireplace. A sleek, two-sided metal and stone fireplace divides the primary kitchen and the living room - which offers a popup wall as a place to display an entertainment center. A built-in movie theater includes its own red carpet and a dual-level viewing area, and there is an adjacent concrete finished bunker that serves as a safe room in case of an emergency. Surrounded by manicured grass, the home has a pool in the backyard with its own changing room.
