by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s installment of Under Contract includes two houses in Chevy Chase and off H Street that were both featured and went under contract within one week's time.


One Week One Block from H Street

Located a block off the H Street Corridor, this two-bedroom rowhouse with a transom atop the front door found a buyer in just a week. The interior has an open sightline from the front to the backdoor, and the open-concept floorplan between has an exposed brick lining the wall alongside the staircase. The living room has a bay window and is open to the dining area with dogleg window. The white two-wall kitchen beyond has a hood concealed above the stove and open shelving and cabinetry above a marble backsplash and countertop. The owner's bedroom has a bay nook, an exposed wooden ceiling beam, and a brick accent wall, while its en-suite bath has three different showerheads in the honeycomb tile-floored shower. The house also has a fenced-in back patio.

One Week One Block from Connecticut Avenue

A few houses away from Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase, this expanded house sits on a 12,000 square-foot lot. A wraparound porch traces the wraparound yard, which has an abstract-shaped brick patio and a detached two-car garage in the back. The living room has a bay on one side and a sunroom-like alcove lined with built-in shelving on another. Pocket doors separate this room from the formal dining room, which has a bay window opposite a corner gas fireplace. A breakfast bar separates the kitchen from a sunroom-like breakfast nook. The main level hosts the double-sized owner's suite, and upstairs, one of the bedrooms has a walk-in closet with built-in dresser and another has a bay window. The house also has an unfinished basement with painted concrete floors. On the market last week, the home went under contract in a multiple offer scenario.
