In this week's Under Contract, we highlight two listings that we wrote about on Friday that have already found buyers. 


72 Hours For A 16th Street Heights Bungalow 

This 16th Street Heights bungalow spent just three days on the market before being snatched up by a buyer. A bright pink retro fridge, white quartz countertops, and drop-down lighting fixtures are found in the kitchen - which leads to an open dining room with access to the spacious back deck. There is also a den on the main floor which could serve as an office. The primary bedroom upstairs has a walk-in closet while the shared bathroom includes floral floor tiling, a large waterfall shower, a soaking tub and a double vanity sink. The multi-proposed basement has bright pink storage, wood planking and fun wallpaper, and there is a detached garage out back.

Four Days For A Flounder House 

Alexandria's two-bedroom flounder house -- a home named after the flatfish due to the slope of the home's roof -- was listed last Thursday and under contract as of yesterday. Flounder homes were likely built by colonial residents due to their low cost and ease of construction, and rustic wooden ceiling planks in the dining room, bedrooms and kitchen are a visual reminder of the home's history. Though both bedrooms have sharply angled ceilings due to the shape of the home, the shorter wall space is efficiently used to offer recessed shelving and storage. Skylights throughout the house ensure that there's no shortage of sunlight. Along the side of the home, there is a fully fenced area with a stone path that would make a wonderful garden or area for a pet. 

  • Full Listing: 515 Queen Street (map)
  • Price: $685,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Feet: 775
  • Year Built: 1790
  • Days on Market: 4
  • Listing Agent: Nancy Perkins, TTR Sotheby's International Realty
