In this week's Under Contract, we highlight a home in Potomac built without nails and a spacious condo in Hill East that recently found buyers. 


A Week For a Home Built Without Nails

Sitting on just under five acres, this Potomac home built using the "post and beam" method, which means no nails or screws were used, spent just a week on the market before being snapped up by a buyer. The cathedral a-frame design allows for soaring ceilings and tilted skylights throughout, and imported Peruvian and Mexican patterned tiles are found as accents throughout the home on the floors and walls. The open kitchen includes an herb garden in the corner and two doors that lead to the large patio. The upstairs living area has a large wood-burning fireplace with space for a formal dining room. The primary suite, also located on the top floor, includes ample closet space, multiple points of entry and a sliding barn door that leads to a bathroom with double vanity sinks and a glass waterfall shower.

A Month For a Condo in Hill East

This two-bedroom condo in Hill East needed just a slight price reduction before finding a buyer after a month on the market. The double-height ceiling in the 1,400 square-foot space is accompanied by a multitude of windows that allow for all-day sun in the main living area. A kitchen on the main level includes marble counters, white cabinetry, a wine fridge and floating shelves. Up the stairs, a loft area looks over the primary living space and serves as a bedroom with a walk-in closet, full bathroom and attached sitting area. UrbanTurf's favorite feature is the private roof deck which includes a wet bar with a beer tap and space for a grill.
