Under Contract: Selling Like Dominoes: Figure 1

An Impressive Expansion in Chevy Chase

Just off the beaten path in Chevy Chase DC, this 1935 house was renovated and expanded by Property Alchemist into a 4,650 square-foot, six-bedroom house that hit the market ten days ago. That modernization creates open flow from room to room and plenty of room to roam. The gourmet eat-in kitchen is just steps from a sunny breakfast nook and a dining room, which leads to a living room, family room and attached office and seating area. The finished basement is equally impressive, with two full bedrooms, a bathroom and a large recreation room. The whole package found a buyer in a little more than a week.

  • Price: $1,750,000
  • Bedrooms: Six
  • Bathrooms: 4.5
  • Square Feet: 4,650

A City First Condo with First-Rate Features

This one bedroom plus den condo was sure to be a quick sale; after all, it isn’t often that conveniently-located units in the city come on the market with incentives and income limits to ensure their affordability. The one-bedroom has a layout and finishes that are in high demand, with an open kitchen/living/dining room, hardwood flooring and picture windows. With a parking space included, it’s not surprising that this condo found a buyer in eight days.

  • Price: $257,950
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Feet: 656

Gone in a Week on Garfield Street

Another renovated and expanded home tucked away near the Cathedral, this semi-detached colonial in Observatory Circle only spent a week on the market. The house takes advantage of every inch of its 1,720 square feet and uses the sun to great advantage, from the skylit sunroom at the rear to the pre-installed solar panels. The oversized front porch and stone-paved backyard are just as enticing as the traditionally-arranged interior.

  • Full Listing: 3822 Garfield Street NW (map)
  • Price: $1,199,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Feet: 1,720
  • Days on Market: Seven
  • Listing Agent: Elyse Wander, Compass
