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

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.

Four Short Days in Stanton Park
This Richardsonian Romanesque rowhouse spent the least amount of time on the market of any of this week’s featured properties, finding a buyer in just 96 hours. 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.
