In Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured recently that were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers.
A Two-Bedroom Rowhouse From Another Era
The listing description for this federal rowhouse says that “George and Martha would’ve loved it” and that appears to have attracted a buyer with 18th century sensibilities. While some of the finishes are old fashioned, the interior has a number of praise-worthy aspects, including preserved doors, a screened-in dining porch and a deep flagstone patio that leads to a pond out back. Also, the home’s garage is currently configured as a one-bedroom, one-bath carriage house. The listing went under contract in five days.
- Address: 741 10th Street SE (map)
- Price: $799,500
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Square Footage: 1,475
- Days on Market: 5
- Listing Agent: H. Ryall Smith, Coldwell Banker
A Logan Circle Two-Bedroom in the Berret School
The Berret School was built in 1898 and converted to residences in 1999. Most of the units, including this two-bedroom that sold in a week, have 14-foot ceilings and nine-foot windows. One of the bedrooms in this condo is on the smaller side, but the unit is updated with all-new finishings in the bathrooms and kitchen, and given its location at 14th and Q, the new owner will never have a shortage of nearby restaurant options.
- Address: 1408 Q Street NW, #21 (map)
- Price: $699,900
- HOA Fee: $375/month
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1889
- Days on Market: 7
- Listing Agent: Mansour Abu-Rahmeh, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

A Five-Bed Kent Bungalow on a Hill
We are big fans of this five-bedroom, three-bath house in Kent that sits on a forested hill. There’s a welcoming front porch where you can survey your domain, and inside it’s brighter and more modern than many bungalows, with white trim and exterior French doors to let more light in. It took a price reduction, but the home sold in just about a month.
- Address: 5142 Klingle Street NW (map)
- Price: $1,175,000
- Bedrooms: Five
- Bathrooms: Three
- Year Built: 1927
- Days on Market: 32
- Listing Agent: Nancy Hammond, Evers & Company Real Estate
