In Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured recently that were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers.

Under Contract: A Craftsman, a Loft, and a Rowhouse: Figure 1

Takoma Park Craftsman With Ample Woodwork

With sunny rooms and a close proximity to downtown Takoma Park, this bungalow attracted attention immediately, and was under contract within six days of going on the market. Like many craftsman-type homes, the three-bedroom is an attractive home for people who like woodwork. The doors, window frames, staircase, cabinetry and floors are all constructed in pine, giving the house a warm, unified look.

  • Address: 99 Elm Ave, Takoma Park, MD (map)
  • Price: $649,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1920
  • Days on Market: 6 days

A True Industrial Loft in Logan Circle

While many condos in DC attempt an industrial style, or a loft-like feel, this unit actually has an industrial history. In 2006, a former auto showroom was converted into condo units. The layout of this two-bedroom is airy and spacious, and the design is raw, with exposed piping and floor-to-ceiling windows. Though it is divided into rooms, the walls don’t quite reach the ceiling, and a lofted room, accessible by stairs, offers a getaway for an office or guestroom. It first entered the market in early July; over the next few months, the asking price dropped several times, until the unit finally found a buyer in mid-November.

  • Address: 1400 Church Street NW, #201 (map)
  • Price: $849,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,290
  • HOA Fees: 598
  • Days on Market: 4 months

Updated Rowhouse on Northern Edge of Petworth

Located on the northern fringes of Petworth, this three-bedroom is attractively updated and has a layout that feels typical of the area, with a living room, dining room and kitchen on the main level, and a large master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms upstairs. One of our favorite features is the bright office area attached to the second bedroom (see photo above). A finished basement is currently being used as a family room, and could be a potential guest room. The home is a ways from a Metro station, perhaps explaining the lower-than-expected asking price. It went under contract after nine days on the market.

  • Address: 425 Ingraham Street NW (map)
  • Price: $479,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1932
  • Days on Market: 9 days
