Fireplace-Filled Rowhouse Does Fine in Nine Days 

When considering this four-bedroom's Logan Circle-adjacent location, it is not surprising that it went under contract just over a week after hitting the market. The 2,800 square-foot Victorian boasts many of the restored and remixed architectural features typical of the neighborhood, among them a wrought iron stair leading to a separate vestibule just past the front door, a bay window that adds space to the living room and the master bedroom, built-ins (some modernized with floating glass shelves), decorative trim on the main level, and an already-rented one-bedroom, 1.5-bath English basement. More distinctive are the whopping six fireplaces throughout the house, featuring such elements as ornate iron grills, and legs and filler panels with decorative inlays.

1.5 Months for Newly-Delivered Triplex Near Naylor Court

On the Shaw end of O Street near Naylor Court, this newly-delivered three-bedroom triplex spent a bit more time on the market than its Logan Circle neighbor. Completed by Brook Rose Development, the nearly 2,100 square-foot unit has a minimalist linearity throughout the open concept kitchen/dining room/living room trifecta, centering around the contemporary kitchen where the refrigerator is hidden within the cabinetry. The front of the unit also contemporizes more traditional features like the bay and transom windows, rendering them in oversized panes of glass. The master suite is particularly attractive, with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors walling off an attached sitting room and an en-suite with spa tub and large-veined marble accent walls.
