Kalorama Condo in a Nine-Unit Building

This Kalorama condo is attractive, but has a few quirks: the kitchen appears to only have a relatively shallow stretch of counter space, and none on either side of the oven. Despite that, it looks like the reasonable price, sunny layout and Beaux Arts touches were appealing to a buyer: the third-floor condo went under contract in seven days.

  • Address: 1900 Biltmore Street NW, #5 (map)
  • Price: $384,900
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 605
  • HOA Fees: $338
  • Days on Market: 7

H Street Corridor Rowhouse With a Private Garden and Open Third Story

Our favorite thing about this three-story 2,184-square-foot home on the western end of the H Street corridor is the open area on the third story at the top of the stairs that is currently being used as an office and family room. The malleable, bright space could also be used as a playroom, TV-watching area or studio of some sort. The home also comes with garage parking, which will make it easier to live in the frequently-packed area. The home quickly attracted attention and found a buyer four days after entering the market.

  • Address: 633 4th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $899,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1905
  • Days on Market: 4

Logan Circle Condo In a Renovated Rowhouse

Though 14th Street is now bursting with new construction, the surrounding blocks are full of giant rowhouses that have been divided into multiple units. This one-bedroom sits in one of those houses. The low-frills unit has a plain kitchen, unadorned walls and rough carpeting in the bedroom. But its proximity to the action of 14th Street, cozy living room and relatively generous square footage attracted a buyer in just five days.

  • Address: 1421 T Street NW, #5 (map)
  • Price: $399,900
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 669
  • HOA Fees: $353
  • Days on Market: 5
