In this installment of Under Contract, we highlight two recently-featured listings that show that the market started moving again in January. 


4 Days For The Dairy Farm Bungalow

This blue bungalow in Takoma Park was part of a working dairy farm when it was first built in 1918. It hit the market last Friday and found a buyer yesterday. A screened front patio leads into the living room, which has a multitude of windows and a white brick fireplace. A bedroom on the main level makes for ideal office space, and the other two bedrooms upstairs offer ample closet space and share a bathroom with white and black tiling. Basement renovations include a radiant-heated ceramic tile floor in the living space, a bathroom and a laundry room. The backyard is fully fenced and includes a storage shed.
