In Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured recently that were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers.
A Former Carriage House on the Hill
Situated on the corner of Derby Lane and Windy Court — two streets on Capitol Hill most DC residents haven’t heard of — this carriage house-turned-residence is tucked away, enjoying much more breathing room than the typical historic home in the neighborhood.
Built in 1900, the home still has indentations from where the carriages were brought in during its previous life. The sellers stripped the home’s two and a half baths to the studs and redid the roof, windows, HVAC, and much more. It lasted on the marker for just over a week.
- Address: 1 Derby Lane SE (map)
- Price: $674,900
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Square Footage: 1,472
- Days on Market: Eight
- Listing Agent: Robert Carter, Century 21 Redwood Realty
A Country-Style Home in Berkley
This redone farmhouse sits in Berkley, the small neighborhood just to the north of Georgetown. For those that can afford the $1.4 million price tag, the four-bedroom has a lot more elbow room and country charm than buyers typically find in the city. UrbanTurf spoke with a few agents that previewed the property for clients, and it was under contract in just five days.
- Address: 1847 47th Place NW (map)
- Price: $1,359,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 4.5
- Year Built: 1908
- Days on Market: Five
- Listing Agent: Janet Whitman, Long and Foster

A Dupont One-Bedroom in a Historic Mansion
One of the cooler things about this one-bedroom in a former Dupont Circle mansion are the previous owners: Congressman Joseph Wheeler, and Crosby Stuart Noyes, one of the publishers of the Washington Evening Star. The unit itself offers large bay windows, high ceilings and two wood-burning fireplaces. The unit got a total of 18 offers and went under contract for well above the list price.
- Address: 1730 New Hampshire Avenue NW, #10 (map)
- Price: $425,000
- HOA Fee: $361/month
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
- Days on Market: Five
- Listing Agent: Anslie Stokes Milligan, McEnearney Associates
