For Under Contract this week, UrbanTurf revisits a trio of DC homes that listed for over $1 million and recently went under contract.
A Piece of LeDroit History Goes From House to Home
Featured just last week, this Queen Ann Victorian is one of the first detached homes built in LeDroit Park and is one of the most eye-catching houses on Anna Cooper Circle, with a distinct buttermilk color and stained glass windows. The grand interior is 4,300 square feet over four floors and retains a lot of its original charm, from the uneven vaulted ceiling and exposed posts in the attic to the two-bedroom in-law suite in the basement. The huge chef’s kitchen has multiple islands, a built-in window seat, tin-press ceiling and a breakfast nook with U-shaped eating area. The house found a buyer in under a week.

A Rare Residence with International Style
This mid-century modern Michigan Park house boasts an impressive history of its own, as a rare example of an International style residence designed by noteworthy local architect Louis Giles, Jr. The interior hews largely to its original design, with 18-foot ceilings and multiple living levels within the main floor. A wall of glass in the living room overlooks the rear terrace and garden with its cooling pool water feature. The house was originally listed at $1,125,000 in May and bounced on and off the market before going under contract at a list price of $1,050,000; the purchaser of the house will be its third owner.

Below Asking for Above-Average Views of the Potomac
This six-bedroom, 6,000 square-foot home sits on Potomac Avenue in the Palisades, enjoying unparalleled views of the Potomac River. Quadrilateral bay windows and balconies create impressive indoor and outdoor living spaces that also take advantage of the viewshed. An impressive custom glass partition splits the pitched-roof attic in half, creating the opportunity for more bonus space while still maintaining both the light feel of the interior and the natural light of the level. The home saw its listing price reduced to $2.2 million before it went under contract.
