Under Contract: A Week or Less from Parker Street to Chevy Chase: Figure 1

A Week on the Market in Chevy Chase

This 4,100 square-foot home sits just off Military Road in Chevy Chase DC, and the curb appeal alone probably had a lot to do with its quick sale. Inside there’s a bright, modern ground floor that’s laid out for formal entertaining with an eat-in kitchen. The bedrooms are on the upper levels, with two attached via a bright study/den. Outside is an elevated back deck as well as a patio, and there is a one-bedroom in-law suite on the first level.

  • Price: $1,475,000

Gone in Five Days on Parker Street

This home sits on Parker Street, a one-block community tucked away behind Union Station near H Street. It’s an updated, small, turn-of-the-century rowhouse with 1.5 updated bathrooms. (That extra half-bath is a coveted feature in these tiny rowhomes.) Parker Street’s known for being a tight community that holds monthly happy hours and the annual Porker Street Fest. For likely a variety of reasons, a few mentioned here, this home found a buyer in five days.

  • Address: 225 Parker Street NE (map)
  • Days on Market: 5
  • Price: $499,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 1.5

Under a Week in Mount Pleasant

This 5,000 square foot rowhouse was one of the largest and priciest homes to hit the market in Mount Pleasant in quite a while. Renovated in 2005 to make the downstairs larger and the bedrooms bigger, the result was a comfortable, spacious house with a functional layout. The kitchen and bathrooms are all updated, and there’s an income suite in the basement to take pressure off the hefty mortgage. It too found a buyer in under a week.

  • Address: 1730 Park Road NW (map)
  • Days on Market: 5
  • Price: $1,450,000
  • Bedrooms: Five + income suite
  • Bathrooms: 3.5 + income suite
  • Year Built: 1910
  • Listing Agents: Kelly Williams and Loic Pritchett, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
