Under Contract: From 18 Days to Four Years: Figure 1

Mount Pleasant Two-Bedroom With Bay Windows

We featured this two-bedroom in Best New Listings a couple weeks ago, and it went under contract about two weeks after that. The unit is in The Argyle in Mount Pleasant, which was built in the early 1900s. Perhaps for that reason, the interior feels similar to that of many rowhouses built in that era. There are bay windows to create bright areas in the living room and master bedroom, a fireplace, separate dining area, and a walk-in closet in the master bedroom. The new owners will enjoy condo perks as well, like a rooftop deck with views of the Cathedral and the Washington Monument, and a bike room in the basement.

  • Address: 3220 17th Street NW, #107 (map)
  • Price: $539,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 940
  • Days on Market: 18

This six-bedroom home spreads out over 8,000 square feet near Rock Creek Park in Forest Hills.

After about four years on and off the market and a few price reductions, the home found a buyer last week.
