In this week's Under Contract, UrbanTurf takes a look at three recently-featured listings that found buyers, including the smallest home currently on the market in the city. 


Condo Inside a Dupont Mansion Finds Buyer in Four Days

This 2,000 square-foot, two-level condo in a late 19th century mansion went under contract four days after hitting the market. The private entryway includes stained glass features, a chandelier and subtle striped wallpaper. Sliding doors lead into a formal dining room, complete with a built-in china cabinet and a fireplace. The formal sitting room includes tall windows and another grand fireplace, and the kitchen features a historic red brick hearth. All three bedrooms include an en-suite bath, however, the primary suite includes an additional cutout that makes for the ideal lounge area. A small den includes a space for a desk and French doors that open to a small balcony.

Five Days For a 16th Street Heights Craftsman 

This craftsman in 16th Street Heights spent just five days on the market, and the buyer probably liked what they saw out back. The backyard of the four-bedroom home was converted into a professionally designed English garden, featuring shaped shrubbery, a central fountain and a gazebo. Other standout features of the home include a large living room with a sculpted mantle, an attic converted into an angled extra bedroom, and a spacious multi-purpose room in the basement that could be a good space for an office or at-home library.

DC's Smallest Home Finds a Buyer in a Week

DC's smallest home for sale, a 265 square foot studio in Park View, spent just a week on the market. The compact unit is owned by a foreign service officer who uses it when she is in the U.S. The condo has furnishings that are common for a unit this small, such as a futon that doubles as a couch and a bed, a kitchen island with built-in storage that could be used as a dining table or a desk, and an ottoman with built-in storage that is heavy enough for a guest to sit on. 

  • Full Listing: 430 Irving Street NW, #5 (map)
  • Price: $169,000
  • Bedrooms: 0
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Feet: 265
  • Days on Market: 7
