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

Kalorama Two-Bedroom in a 1911 Building

In Best New Listings ten days ago, we featured this 1,224 square-foot Kalorama condo. A couple renovations have opened it up a bit, including installation of a chef’s kitchen in 2010 and a new bathroom in 2006. Also, unlike many two-bedrooms out on the market, both bedrooms in this unit do not compromise on square footage. All of the aforementioned attributes appear to have attracted a buyer in five days.

  • Address: 2415 20th Street NW, #22 (map)
  • Price: $625,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 1,224
  • HOA Fees: $304
  • Days on Market: 5

A Two-Bedroom in Historic Grace Church

In 1989, a church around the corner from the Eastern Market Metro was transformed into condos. The developer maintained the stained glass windows, which are perhaps one of the most desirable features in many of the units. This two-bedroom listing, featured back in late June, has one of the larger windows, and the layout was built to highlight it: the ceiling rises two stories to match the window height, which looks to be at least 18 feet. We are a little late to the game on this 1,161 square-foot listing, which went under contract in just a few days.

  • Address: 350 9th Street SE, #17 (map)
  • Price: $639,500
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,161
  • HOA Fees: $390
  • Days on Market: 3

Capitol Hill Victorian Near Union Station

Located on the eastern side of Capitol Hill, this Victorian featured in Best New Listings sits just above Stanton Park, a few minutes from Eastern Market and Union Station. The interior is well maintained, with historical details, pretty woodworking on the staircase, a fireplace in the living room, and a tin ceiling in the dining room. Our favorite room, however, was the bedroom seen above, with its exposed brick and wall of bay windows. It found a buyer in just under a week.

  • Address: 402 4th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $699,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1907
  • Days on Market: 6
