Under Contract: Two-Day Turnover in LeDroit Park: Figure 1

2,700 Square Feet in 48 Hours

Between its ample living space, full in-law suite, energy-generating solar array and quiet yet convenient location, its not surprising that this federal rowhouse in LeDroit Park found a buyer just 48 hours after being listed. The house has eye-catching character from the entrance, where a bay window creates a T-shaped front room with a corner fireplace opposite a corner built-in cabinet. The next room just past the staircase has a vertically staggered wall. Upstairs, a set of French doors open to the master bedroom, which also enjoys the bay window and has an exposed brick wall and bay window. The bedroom in the English basement has a white-painted brick wall and a corner decorative fireplace.

A Week for an Artist's Touch in Takoma

Over in Takoma, this brightly-colored bungalow offers an abundance of living space courtesy of an addition and updates made by the artist owner. The bonus spaces throughout make the home well-suited to accommodate a live/work lifestyle, evident in the sunroom and attached bedroom-cum-studio on the main level and in the partially-finished basement. The house also has finishes that add a rustic touch, including the living room fireplace with heavy wood mantel and built-ins on either side and the eat-in kitchen with heated floors, semi-circular pass-through window and walls covered with decorative tiles. A large brick patio and a detached shed sit in the backyard. The home found a buyer after just a week on the market.

Six Days for 700 Square Feet

With an affordable condo fee and a solid 700 square feet of space, this one-bedroom unit equidistant from both Lincoln Park and RFK Stadium went under contract in less than a week.

The dual-entry bathroom offers the convenience of an en-suite without sacrificing privacy in the bedroom, which also has access to a rear porch landing and a walk-in closet with a stacked laundry unit inside.
