Under Contract: Lucky Number Seven

by Nena Perry-Brown

In this installment of Under Contract, UrbanTurf takes a look at three homes that we recently featured that found buyers in seven days.

Under Contract: Lucky Number Seven: Figure 1

Three Levels of Living and a Rooftop Deck in Logan Circle

This semi-detached Victorian rowhouse is located on a bit of a hidden block in Logan Circle. An exposed brick wall runs the length of the open main floor, which features the living and dining areas. The renovated kitchen on the lower level contains both a farmhouse and a bar sink, heated tile floors, Carrera marble countertops and two dishwashers. A large mudroom on the lower level, walls lined with built-in shelving, leads to an off-street parking space. Listed at the beginning of the year, the home found a buyer in a week.

Full of Light in Lincoln Park

The windows are also the star in this semi-detached Victorian just two blocks from Lincoln Park, whose broad bay is lined with windows in both the living room, where the extended space creates a bonus seating area with a built-in bench, and in the master bedroom. A kitchen toward the rear of the house adds unique flair, with exposed brick accent walls and a brick-framed chef’s stove with exhaust hood and pot-filler spout. Add in the partially-finished basement with separate exit and its not much of a surprise that this house sold in just a week.

  • Full Listing: 226 12th Street SE (map)
  • Price: $1,055,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
