Under Contract: Gone in Two Days in Mount Pleasant

  • September 29th 2014

by Lark Turner

In Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured recently that were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers. This week’s properties were all snapped up in about a week or less, including one that flew under contract after two days.

An Eckington Rowhouse Lasts a Week on the Market

This quirky, restored Victorian rowhouse in Eckington isn’t far from the NoMa Metro, but it feels worlds away from the towering new residential buildings that characterize that part of the neighborhood. That combination of a great location with a neighborhood feel probably helped this one get under contract quickly. Other perks include the home’s good-sized living room, separate dining room, large master bedroom and yard.

  • Address: 45 Q Street NE (map)
  • Days on Market: 7
  • Price: $629,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1905
  • Listing Agent: Larissa Fain, McWilliams|Ballard

A Light-Flooded Unit in a Logan Rowhouse

This Logan Circle condo features floor-to-ceiling windows that do what similar windows can’t: Bring light to every corner of a room. And there is a buyer out there that loves that light, and snatched up the brand-new, two-story renovation in a gutted T Street rowhouse a little over a week after it hit the market. The unit also has an island that seems to go one forever in the kitchen, a large cedar deck and a garage parking space.

  • Address: 1310 T Street NW, #2 (map)
  • Days on Market: 8
  • Price: $1,199,000
  • HOA Fee: $188/month
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1900
  • Listing Agent: Kimberly Casey, Washington Fine Properties

Just Two Days on the Market in Mount Pleasant

This home, a stone’s throw from the National Zoo, has a staggering seven bedrooms — five on the upper levels and two downstairs. It found a buyer in just 48 hours, surely thanks to its careful renovation with an eye toward preserving classic details, like the dining room’s coffered ceilings. The home also has fantastic outdoor space: There’s a deck on each floor, with the one on the top floor looking out to Virginia and the one on the lowest level leading out onto a patio with immaculate landscaping and room for entertaining.

  • Address: 1836 Lamont Street NW (map)
  • Days on Market: 2
  • Price: $1,350,000
  • Bedrooms: Seven
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1910
  • Listing Agents: Kelly Williams and Loic Pritchett, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

A Sprawling Studio with a Separate Sleeping Space

This high-ceilinged Cleveland Park studio in the Broadmoor co-op is more of a junior one-bedroom, which may explain why it didn’t last on the market very long. The top-floor unit has space for a living room, dining area and desk, with the sleeping space separated from the living room by a partial wall. French doors lead into a bright sunroom, and built-in closets offer storage space. The unit’s only drawback is the odd location of the small kitchen.

  • Address: 3601 Connecticut Avenue NW, #817 (map)
  • Days on Market: 6
  • Price: $255,000
  • HOA Fee: $526/month
  • Bedrooms: Studio
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1928
  • Listing Agent: John Mammano, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate
