For this installment of Under Contract, UrbanTurf revisits two previously-featured listings that sold in two months or less and both offered more than meets the eye.
Five Weeks on the Market for Kalorama Rowhouse
Over in Kalorama, this semi-detached Victorian almost reads as two houses from the exterior, with two differently-shaped bay protrusions on either side of the entrance. On the interior, those bays create a dynamic layout throughout the home's 4,300 square feet. The rectangular bay adds space to the living and dining rooms, as well as creating a seating area in the master suite. The elliptical-shaped bay creates a breakfast nook in the kitchen and enlarges the office on the second level. The house also accommodates a two-car garage and basement in-law suite with private entrance. Outdoor space comes courtesy of a screened-in terrace and a rooftop deck with city views. The home found a buyer just after a month on the market.
Almost Two Months on the Market for Brookland Five-Bedroom
This semi-detached home in Brookland spent close to two months on the market before going under contract. From the exterior, the four-bedroom looks like a quaint three-story home; however, the house goes much deeper into the lot than is readily apparent, creating a 2,100 square-foot interior. The updated home has a traditional style, with restored original heart pine floors contrasting with dark trim around the windows, baseboards and door frames. The open main level looks straight from the entry back to the newly-renovated kitchen at the rear of the level; an adjacent family room walks out onto the rear deck overlooking a deep backyard. The basement has a full bedroom and bath as well as a separate exit into the backyard.
