A Tenleytown Two-Bedroom Gone in Under a Week

This two-bedroom house a block from Wisconsin Avenue had a lower asking price than most houses in the neighborhood and buyers took notice. The living room of the listing has a standalone panel in the center separating it from the dining area, which also hosts the stair with a half-bath beneath. A pass-through window looks into the skylit kitchen with white countertops and subway tile backsplash contrasting with dark granite countes. The side door entryway serves as a mudroom with built-in storage, while closets follow the hallway beyond. The tiled basement also offers extra room for storage and laundry. Listed on a Thursday, the home was under contract by the following Wednesday.

100 Days For a Converted Church Condo

This three-story condo in an historic Romanesque Revival-style Stanton Park church went under contract last week after a few months on the market. Located in the Stanton Tower, the unit has a private elevator, restored stained glass windows and 16-foot ceilings, as well as spiraling interior access up to the structure's restored 130 foot-tall bell tower, offering views of the Capitol building. The open living/dining area is bookended by a kitchen with a breakfast bar and a refrigerator concealed amidst the cabinetry, and the double-height stained glass windows sit alongside pipe organ-referencing sconces. Two of the bedrooms also enjoy the structure's original architectural features, including vaulted ceilings and archtop stained glass windows which rotate on an axis to receive fresh air.
