For this edition of Under Contract, UrbanTurf circles back to two previously-featured listings: one Fallingwater-inspired five-bedroom home overlooking Rock Creek Park and a reasonably-priced five-bedroom bungalow in Mount Rainier.

A Fallingwater-Inspired Five-Bedroom

This 10,000 square-foot home was designed by DC architect Travis Price in a style that recalls Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater property in rural Pennsylvania. Originally listed for $4.95 million, the house went under contract at a reduced price of $3.7 million near the end of 2017. The angular brick exterior complements the cantilevered and open interior, which features double-height ceilings, floating stairs, multiple landings and rows and walls of windows. Interspersed with the windows are an abundance of outdoor terraces, with two on the front facade and five on the rear. The master suite occupies the uppermost floor and three of the bedrooms are on the level below the main floor. The house also has an elevator.

  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 5.5
  • Year Built: 2005

Rare Reasonably-Priced Five-Bedroom Sells in Seven Days

Just a few blocks inside the Maryland border, this five-bedroom house sold for barely more than one-tenth the price of the five-bedroom property in Forest Hills. The three-story detached bungalow was renovated in 2015 and includes a bedroom and a bathroom in the basement. The interior has visual interest, with an additional kitchen nook with breakfast bar and cabinetry separating the one-wall kitchen from the open living room and dining room areas. The uppermost level serves as the master suite. Considering how difficult it is to find a house in DC for less than $500,000,  --  especially one that has five bedrooms  --  it comes as no surprise that this house went under contract in just one week.

  • Full Listing: 3403 Newton Street (map)
  • Price: $380,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Feet: 1,259
  • Year Built: 1923
  • Days on Market: Seven
  • Listing Agent: Kurt Becker, RE/MAX Allegiance
