About a Week for a Rowhouse on the Hill

  • Price: $524,900
  • Days on Market: 8
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1912

Four Days for a Spacious Unit on the Top Floor of a Lanier Heights Condo Building

This large listing in Lanier Heights spreads out over about 1,500 square feet, which may have contributed to the quick pace with which it exited the market. High ceilings, built-ins and moulding give the two-bedroom unit character. One bedroom is connected to a sunroom with room for plants, a lounge and a small dining area. There’s a larger dining area not far from the galley-style kitchen. The condo comes with two storage units and a parking spot.

  • Full Listing: 1623 Lanier Place NW, #301 (map)
  • Price: $595,000
  • Days on Market: 4
