In this week’s edition of Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks at two recently listed homes that each found buyers in under five days.
Rectangular, Window-Filled Contemporary in Forest Hills
This 1981-built home in Forest Hills didn’t have much chance of staying on the market very long. The rectangular house sits on a massive lot, and has cool eco-friendly touches, like solar panels and a rooftop garden. The main living areas are bright, with floor-to-ceiling windows that reach up to a wooden, beamed ceiling and the double-sided fireplace is a cool touch. The home hit the market on a Friday and was under contract by the following Tuesday.
- Address: 2830 Upton Street NW (map)
- Price: $975,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1981
- Days on Market: 4 days
Renovated Capitol Hill Rowhouse With a Storage Shed
We featured this three-bedroom Capitol Hill home in the same edition of Best New Listings as the property above. Since being sold four years ago, a number of renovations have been made to the 14th Place listing, including a new kitchen, bathrooms, and new windows. The home is on the small side for a three-bedroom, but an open floor plan on the main level makes it feel more comfortable. It was on the market just a day longer than the house above.
- Address: 627 14th Place NE (map)
- Price: $549,900
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Year Built: 1900
- Days on Market: 5
