Under Contract: 1 Logan Circle and a Solar-Powered Home: Figure 1

Penthouse in a Logan Circle Mansion

An 80’s House With Solar Panels and Office Space

This unusual-looking home, featured in Best New Listings a couple weeks ago, has a few surprise features that set it even further apart from the crowd. The most notable are the solar panels. When the home generates more energy than it can use, it actually returns energy to the PEPCO grid. Adding to the intrigue of the listing is a professional office in the back of the house, with a studio, waiting room, reception hall and large office space. At least one buyer appeared to fit its profile; the home was off the market within a week.

  • Address: 5320 Belt Road NW (map)
  • Price: $879,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1980
  • Days on Market: 5

Beaux Arts Condo in Kalorama

Those looking for a one-bedroom condo with reasonable amenities may have been drawn to this top-floor Kalorama unit. The listing has a few charming Beaux Arts features, like French glass doors in the living room, radiant heat, an elegant foyer and well-kept hardwood floors. The galley kitchen is tight, but the unit comes with a parking space and a large storage unit. As is perhaps predictable in the current market, the condo found a buyer in about a week.

  • Address: 2227 20th Street NW, #502 (map)
  • Price: $399,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 745
  • HOA Fees: $369 per month
  • Days on Market: 8
