by Lark Turner

In Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks at recently-featured properties that were snapped up by DC’s alert buyers.


A Micro-Unit Flies Off the Market in Cleveland Park

Who says micro-units won’t attract buyers? This Cleveland Park studio, which hit the market for just under $200,000, was snapped up in an incredible two days. The 385-square-foot home, across the street from the Cleveland Park Metro, was outfitted with high ceilings, a king-size murphy bed, a small galley-style kitchen and tall storage.

A U Street Rowhouse Sells in Under a Week

This completely renovated three-story Victorian rowhouse sold after five days on the market. The kitchen, which opens on to the living and dining rooms, was outfitted with a striking tin backsplash. Upstairs the home’s main bath was updated with new tile and a marble sink console. Out back is a garden and a sod-covered former parking pad. The home has alley access and the yard could be converted back to parking, the listing noted.

Six Days on the Market in Lanier Heights

Nothing seems to last very long on the market in the Mount Pleasant and Lanier Heights neighborhoods, and this home on Ontario Place was no exception. Stylishly decorated and laid out, the rowhouse has a comfortable living area, a deep rear outdoor space, a garage, and what seemingly every buyer wants these days — a lower level that might be able to bring in come rental income. A buyer snapped it up after just six days on the market.

  • Full Listing: 1810 Ontario Place NW (map)
  • Price: $1.135 million
  • Days on Market: 6
  • Bedrooms: Three

A Week for a Gut-Renovated Condo with 14 Offers

This two-bedroom condo recently underwent a complete renovation (here’s a look at the home before) and the impressive results led to a bidding war on this Columbia Heights property. Agent Kara Johnson told UrbanTurf that 14 offers were made on this condo, which went under contract after a week on the market. Exposed brick and beams complement the sleek appliances, cabinetry and furnishing throughout the home, and a large bay window fills the condo with natural light.

  • Full Listing: 1415 Chapin St NW #101 (map)
  • Price: $439,000
  • HOA Fees: $322/month
  • Days on Market: 7

A Home in Georgetown Once Owned, Perhaps, by Alexander Graham Bell

The buyer of this Georgetown home, featured in UrbanTurf’s most recent This Week’s Find, may have purchased a rare bit of DC history: The tiny two-bedroom rowhouse was reportedly once owned by Alexander Graham Bell. The home, on a tiny historic alleyway, is outfitted with exposed beams, a small back patio and an in-unit washer and dryer. It went under contract after 10 days on the market.

  • Full Listing: 7 Pomander Walk NW (map)
  • Price: $599,000
  • Days on Market: 10
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1900
  • Listing Agent: Pam Ryan-Brye, Long & Foster Real Estate
