In Under Contract this week, we feature three homes from around the city that found buyers in the last two weeks.

Under Contract: From Benning Road to Wyoming Avenue: Figure 1

2,500 Square Feet East of the River

Located in Benning Ridge, just a few blocks from the Maryland border, this recently renovated house offers over 2,500 square feet of living space — and a large backyard — at a price rare for a property of this size in the city. Classic details abound, from the leaded glass-paned front door and arched entryways to wainscoting and crown molding throughout the main floor. The master suite occupies the entire top floor, while the basement has a rec room along with a full bedroom and bathroom. The home found a buyer in just under two weeks.

A Kalorama One-Bedroom on the Top Floor

Located on the cusp of Kalorama in the Altamont, a Beaux Arts mid-rise building designed by renowned DC architect Arthur Heaton, this penthouse one-bedroom has a personality of its own. Delicate details abound, from the lionshead door-knocker at the entrance to the living room with skylight and coffered ceilings. French doors divide several areas of the unit, and the eat-in kitchen features an ornamental pressed tin backsplash as well as a thoroughly-modern wine refrigerator. The unit found a buyer that loved it in just four days.

A Book-Lover’s Bliss on the Hill

The complementary Little Free Library on the sidewalk outside this four-story Victorian rowhouse may well be foreshadowing what awaits in inside. With nearly 3,500 square feet of living space over four floors, a rear screened-in porch, and large bay windows facing Lincoln Park, there is plenty to love in the house. However, a second bedroom with wall-to-wall shelving and an attached sunroom may certainly catch the eye of anyone with an extensive book collection. The basement level also has a valid certificate of occupancy which allows it to function as a separate one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment. The listing found a buyer in just five days.

  • Full Listing: 1229 Massachusetts Avenue SE (map)
  • Price: $1,299,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 4.5
  • Square Feet: 3,472
