Under Contract: Seven Whole Days and Seven Whole Months
This edition of Under Contract features three recently-featured houses — two of which sold in a week or less, and one which spent over seven months on the market.
A Downtown Spanish-Style Bed and Breakfast
While this two-building Spanish-style listing in Mount Vernon Triangle offered several floors of living space and a captivating exterior and interior design, its status as an actively-operating bed and breakfast may have delayed it finding a buyer. After going on the market last fall, the price dropped twice, landing at $2.75 million before it went under contract in recent weeks. The turn-of-the-century property, which includes a five-story main house and a three-story carriage house, is one of the more eye-catching exteriors in the neighborhood.
- Full Listing: 400 M Street NW (map)
- Price: $2.75 million
- Bedrooms: Six
- Bathrooms: 6.5
- Year Built: 1900
- Days on Market: 233
- Listing Agent: James Grant, Keller Williams Capital Properties

A Week on the Market in Takoma
This three-story bungalow in Takoma has plenty of little details and has been modernized in a way that makes it easy to customize. Its corner lot location surrounds it with three sides of ample yard space and a wrap-around porch with ceiling fan. On the inside, the master bedroom is in a corner of the house that allows it double exposure to sunlight, while the en-suite bathroom is a converted sunroom. The basement has two private entrances and also contains a full bedroom and bathroom, while hookups invite the new owner to install a galley kitchen and add a second washer/dryer for convenience. The whole package found a buyer in seven days.

Its updated interior features several semi-levels and appliances built into its three stories. An office area sits a few steps down from the second floor landing, loft-like, overlooking the living room. Further down the landing is a built-in vacuum hose, a few short steps from a bonus seating area next to a handful of steps leading to the roof deck, which also overlooks the multi-level rear brick patio.
