Under Contract: From Benning Road to Wyoming Avenue

by UrbanTurf Staff

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
  • Year Built: 1910
  • Days on Market: Five
  • Listing Agent: Joel Nelson, Keller Williams Capital Properties
