A Midcentury Home Finds a Buyer in Five Days

UrbanTurf was smitten with this midcentury home between Kent and Palisades, and apparently so was the market, as it was snatched up in just five days. The home clearly needed some work — the listing at one point suggested the new owner clear the lot and start over — but we’re hoping the new buyer is interested in preserving this house and bringing it into the 21st century. With five bedrooms and an artist studio crisscrossed with exposed beams, there’s a lot of potential.

  • Address: 2905 University Terrace NW (map)
  • Listed Price: $850,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 2,882
  • Days on Market: 5
  • Listing Agent: Margaretha McGrail, Long & Foster Real Estate

A Renovated Townhouse in Georgetown

A luxe, top-to-bottom renovation ensured this pricey Georgetown townhouse didn’t last long on the market, where it stuck around for just over a week. It’s move-in ready, with a grand entry, a pretty swanky kitchen and a backyard that looks like something out of an English storybook. For the winter months, this house’s three fireplaces should have its new owners covered.

  • Address: 2815 Q Street NW (map)
  • Listed Price: $1.595 million
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 2,010
  • Days on Market: 9
  • Listing Agent: Nancy Taylor Bubes, Washington Fine Properties

A Picket Fence in 16th Street Heights

This home’s quirky charm — and likely its ample square footage — won over a buyer after just six days on the market. Its wide-open entry, interior woodwork, large yard and five bedrooms probably made this home an attractive buy for a family. A wraparound porch and a picket fence complete the image of suburban bliss in the city.

  • Address: 5017 13th Street NW (map)
  • Listed Price: $700,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Footage: 3,951
  • Days on Market: 6
  • Listing Agent: Arynne Crane, DCRE Residential

    #2 was one of those price it too low, set a deadline for offers, and create a feeding frenzy houses. I hate that sales technique--terrible for buyers.
