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.

Under Contract: Sweeps Week: Figure 1

A Condo Alternative in Georgetown

Featured as one of our Best New Listings last week, this so-called “jewel box” found a buyer in just four days. The skinny two-bedroom in a prime Georgetown location was framed as a condo alternative. A previous owner increased the desirability by creating built-in furniture in the bedroom and an outdoor dining room, complete with a pergola, on the back patio.

  • Address: 2702 N Street NW (map)
  • Price: $749,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1900
  • Days on Market: 4

Brightly Colored Victorian in Takoma Park

In the same edition of Best New Listings, this Takoma Park Victorian was featured for its colorful facade, substantial staircases and stately feel. The four-bedroom is fit for a family and has a nook-filled master suite that takes up the top floor, with cool angled walls and crevices. The home went under contract five days after it hit the market.

  • Address: 107 Elm Ave, Takoma Park, MD (map)
  • Price: $759,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1892
  • Days on Market: 5

3127 Adams Mill Road NW

Open on Adams Mill

The most recent home to be highlighted as This Week’s Find, this luxurious three-bedroom has high-end qualities like marble in the bathroom, an extensive walk-in closet, recessed lighting and skylights. Generally, the higher the price tag, the longer it takes to find a buyer. However, this million dollar listing was under contract in five days.

  • Address: 3127 Adams Mill Road NW (map)
  • Price: $1.049 million
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1925

H Street Victorian with a Top Chef Kitchen

Lastly, this Capitol Hill home, one of the properties featured in What $650,000 Buys You with its exceptionally nice kitchen and extended layout, found a buyer within a week. In a renovation that made good use of the skinny plot, an extension created a cozy den on the first floor and allowed for a second story deck to be placed on top of it.

  • Address: 822 I Street NE (map)
  • Price: $648,500
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 1,834
  • Days on Market: 7
