In this week’s edition of Under Contract, UrbanTurf revisits the city’s tiniest home and two homes that sold quickly.

24 Days for DC’s Tiniest

When UrbanTurf featured this tiny Brightwood efficiency, it was the smallest unit on the market at just 264 square feet, and strict financing guidelines had made it a hard sell. Now, after a price reduction and a few weeks on the market, the large room has found a buyer. A kitchen runs along a side of the room with an included combination-washer/dryer, and a large closet is the sole storage feature.

746 Square Feet Go in 7 Days

This one-bedroom plus den in the heart of Mount Pleasant is a recent renovation that packs a lot of storage and conveniences in a small space. A full-size washer/dryer is hidden behind a cabinet in the galley kitchen, and a built-in desk adds function to the open living and dining area. Also, both the den and the bedroom have built-in dressers, while a large bay window in the main room offers Cathedral views and plenty of sunlight.

As-Is in 16th Street Heights

This 16th Street Heights rowhouse has an interior that is just as interesting as its exterior. Features include a staircase chairlift, a sunroom with wet bar on the main floor, and a master bedroom with a bonus room attached. An unfinished attic and basement also offer the potential for more livable area within the house. With an abundance of outdoor space between the large front porch and deep backyard, this listing made as-is seem worthwhile and it found a buyer in under a week.
