by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s edition of Under Contract revisits three very-recently featured listings that each went under contract within a week.


Five Business Days in Brookland

This brick four-bedroom in Brookland only lasted on the market for five days. Inside, the living room has dual exposure, a brick fireplace, and an archway into the formal dining room. Here, sliding glass doors open onto a screened-in porch with exposed beam ceiling, heat lamp and fans. On the lower level, a rec room has exposed brick on either side of an extra-wide entryway to a den, and there is also a laundry/storage room and a full bath with standalone tub. Outdoor spaces include a front porch, a rear deck, and an elevated garden area; the house also has a surplus-generating solar panel system and a parking pad.

Four Days for Takoma Three-Bedroom

A breakfast bar peninsula mounted above the kitchen countertop separates the dining room from the kitchen, which also has a tiled backsplash, a wine fridge, and a white farmhouse basin sink.

A Week for an Arlington Farmhouse

A week after hitting the market, this Lyon Park farmhouse went under contract. Its configuration seems built for social distancing, starting with the dual-entry front porch and the half-bath just steps past the front door. The kitchen has a ceiling fan, a stainless steel hood and backsplash above the stove, and a pantry nook that houses the back door. One of the upstairs bedrooms is styled as an office, with a wall of floor-to-ceiling shelves opposite a built-in desk. There is also a large deck in the back yard, a second deck with a tree growing out of it just a few steps down. A stone path leads down from the deck, through the yard and around the side of the house. 

  • Full Listing: 3113 N Pershing Drive (map)
  • Price: $1.24 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Feet: 2,586
  • Year Built: 1924
  • Days on Market: Seven
  • Listing Agent: Natalie Roy, KW Metro Center
