Under Contract: Five to Seven Days

by Nena Perry-Brown

In this installment of Under Contract, UrbanTurf takes a look at three homes that we recently featured that took from 5 days to three weeks to find buyers.


Under Contract: Five to Seven Days: Figure 1

Capitol Hill Parisian-Style Gets Quick Sale

This renovated Federal rowhouse spent less than a week on the market before going under contract. One reason may be its prime location on a hidden Capitol Hill block, which offers the opportunity to use the double-wide sidewalk as a porch, Parisian-style. Another reason may be the custom kitchen finishings that accompanied the restoration, like the dine-in banquette, recycled glass countertops and vintage-style energy-efficient appliances. Or it could be the ultra-desirable exposed brick wall that spans the living room and kitchen.

  • Full Listing: 146 Duddington Pl SE (map)
  • Price: $799,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1907
  • Square Footage: 1,298

Starchitect-Renovated Cottage in Mount Rainier

Just outside the DC border, this three-bedroom cottage in Mount Rainier not only has local starchitect Mark McInturff’s name attached to it, but is also sited on a double lot with plenty of space to explore and enjoy or build upon. Inside the house, charming details abound like the inlaid hardwood floors and the handmade tiles in the kitchen. The main attraction is the large loft space, which utilizes the original timber of the old roof and includes a belvedere, offering ventilation and flooding the space with sunlight. Like the home above, it found a buyer in five days.

  • Full Listing: 4108 29th Street, Mount Rainier, MD (map)
  • Price: $499,555
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Square Footage: 1,650
  • Days on Market: Five
  • Listing Agents: David Getson and Mandy Mills, Compass


Under Contract: Five to Seven Days: Figure 3

Logan Circle Rowhouse with More than Meets the Eye

Located just off Logan Circle, this five-bedroom is much more than a simple rowhouse — it includes a one-bedroom basement rental and a one-bedroom, one-bath carriage house in the rear. In the main house, the open first floor runs into a kitchen that juxtaposes stainless steel with wood paneling, leading out to a backyard deck and patio. The uppermost level of the house serves as the master suite, bookended by oversized arched windows and a private balcony. Considering the great amount of space and potential for rental income, it’s no wonder that the listing sold in a week’s time.

  • Full Listing: 1820 13th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $2.195 million
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 5.5
  • Year Built: 1900
  • Days on Market: 7
  • Listing Agent: Robert Crawford, Washington Fine Properties
