In this edition of Under Contract, we look at two homes that recently went under contract in less than a week.
A Quintessential Capitol Hill Rowhouse Under Contract in Six Days
When we wrote about this Federal-style rowhouse a couple weeks ago, we noted that it exemplifies everything that makes the Capitol Hill neighborhood a draw, from the cozy front porch to the backyard patio. A buyer clearly agreed with us as the home went under contract in six ays. A fireplace in the living room is framed by built-in shelving units, and there are crown moldings and hardwood floors throughout the main level. A shed behind the rear patio also offers additional storage.

Bonus Space Abounds in Mount Pleasant
This Mount Pleasant five-bedroom offers more than meets the eye.

Even the master bedroom has an attached skylit loft across from its exposed brick accent wall. The basement is a fully-appointed in-law suite with bed, bath, and kitchen. Like virtually every home that hits the market in this neighborhood, the home found a buyer in a week.
