In Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured recently that were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers. In this edition, we cover four homes featured on the site last week that have already gone under contract.
Larger Than It Looks in Chevy Chase
An adorable peaked roof conceals an expansive 2,100-square feet of living space in this Chevy Chase home, which we featured as one of last week’s Best New Listings. With a greenhouse-like sunroom, a sauna on the lower level, a cozy den lined with bookshelves, and a cave-like nook off of the master bedroom, this home had a lot of cool features. A buyer snapped it up in just under a week.
- Address: 2916 Rittenhouse Street NW (map)
- Price: $819,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Three
- Year Built: 1932
- Days on Market: 6
Wraparound Porch in the Palisades
Also one of our Best New Listings from last Friday, this expansive home was notable for its many cool rooms, like an enclosed sunroom with a peaked ceiling and an office lined with bookshelves. The mix of tropical design features — a wraparound porch, darkly-wooded cathedral ceiling and french doors — and winter-friendly fireplaces attracted a buyer within the week, and the home went under contract on Tuesday.
- Address: 5360 MacArthur Boulevard NW (map)
- Price: $1.169 million
- Bedrooms: Five
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Year Built: 1912
- Days on Market: 6
1820 16th Street NW
One of Dupont’s Six Sisters
This stately home was one of Dupont Circle’s “Six Sisters,” noted by the Sixteenth Street Historic District for their Victorian-inspired architecture, decorative pressed bricks and iron cresting. The elegant staircase, large fireplaces, and unusual woodwork attracted our attention, and we highlighted the property as a bit of Friday Eye Candy. By Monday, it was under contract.
- Address: 1820 16th Street NW (map)
- Price: $950,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1890
- Days on Market: 5
1535 5th Street NW
Positively 5th Street
Featured as our last installment of Deal of the Week, this modest two-bedroom attracted an outsized amount of attention. As we noted in the original article, $415 per square foot may not have counted as a bargain just two years ago. In this market, the home was flooded with interest during the open house and received nine offers.
- Address: 1535 5th Street NW (map)
- Price: $499,555
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Square Footage: 1,200
- Days on Market: 7
