In Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured over the past couple weeks to see which were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers. The listings below are either under contract or the listing status has changed to sales pending.

Deal of the Week: Georgetown on the Cheap

Georgetown is known for a lot of things, but reasonably priced homes for the mere mortal is not one of them. Such is probably the reason that last week’s installment of Deal of the Week got snatched up so quickly. Originally two servant quarters when built in the early 20th century, 2516 Mill Road NW had not been on the market since 1968, and not many upgrades have been made over the years, hence the low price. Still, even if the kitchen, bathrooms and floors need to be renovated, nowhere in the neighborhood can one find a home this size at this price. Such is the reason that it found a buyer through multiple offers in six days.

Outdoor Beds and Fireplaces in Georgetown

Featured in Best New Listings last week, this semi-detached, four-bedroom home in Georgetown has a few unexpected elements: a raised fireplace in the kitchen, a patio with an outdoor hearth and, for added coziness, a covered structure in the backyard containing a daybed. Besides the outdoor napping area, there are a few other cozy nooks, like a bed tucked into a cave-like area in one of the bedrooms and a steam shower in one of the bathrooms. The sellers are using the fourth bedroom as a large closet/dressing room; no word if the new buyers, who snatched up the house just prior to it being on the market for a week, will do the same.

Investor Potential on Church Street

Row houses rarely hit the market on Church Street, especially for south of seven figures, which is why a three-bedroom listed a few weeks ago garnered so much attention. 1458 Church Street NW, an estate sale, needs to be completely gutted as there is significant water damage inside from an old roof leak that has caused portions of the upper levels to cave in. That didn’t dampen interest, though. It went under contract in a week for above the list price.

  • Price: $600,000

  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1890
  • Days on Market: Seven
