Under Contract: Ten Days or Less, From Takoma to Capitol Hill

by Nena Perry-Brown

In Under Contract this week, UrbanTurf takes a look back at three recently-featured listings, including two early 20th-century houses on opposite sides of the city, that found buyers in 10 days or less.


Ten Days for Petite House on the Hill

In a few years, the blocks surrounding this squat Federal rowhouse will be dappled with new developments and amenities, including redeveloped Safeway and Frager’s hardware stores and a repurposed, expanded version of the historic Shotgun House. The renovated house found a buyer in ten days and, along with its exterior architecture, has a traditional interior typical of the neighborhood. The rear of the house is visible from the living room, shotgun-style. A countertop divides the kitchen from the formal dining room, where a door provides access to the rear porch and the paved patio below.

  • Full Listing: 1371 E Street SE (map)
  • Price: $889,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,386
  • Year Built: 1907
  • Days on Market: 10
  • Listing Agent: Patrick Morris, Century 21 Redwood Realty


Bonus Breakfast Space in Takoma Bungalow

It took less than a week for this Takoma bungalow to go under contract. The four-bedroom house retains much of its early 20th-century charm, with dark-stained wood trim and doors throughout the house. On the main level, the kitchen area and its abutting dining room and skylit breakfast nook take up a sizeable corner. The bathroom on the upper level has a skylight and heated floors and is on the upper level with the four bedrooms. There is also a front porch and rear patio, a partially-finished basement and a garage in the backyard.

  • Full Listing: 6926 9th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $679,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1917
  • Days on Market: Six
  • Listing Agent: Chris Fischer, McEnearney Associates


Eight Days for Cleveland Park Condo

This renovated one-bedroom condominium sits a block from the Cleveland Park Metro, offering incredible convenience that a buyer recognized eight days after it hit the market. The unit contains windows in every room and has a bedroom large enough to accommodate an extra seating area or a desk. The kitchen has a pass-through window into the living room, creating a breakfast bar, as well as a subway tile backsplash, farmhouse sink and industrial-style chandelier.

  • Full Listing: 3616 Connecticut Avenue NW, #300 (map)
  • Price: $359,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • HOA Fees: $408/month
  • Square Feet: 770
  • Days on Market: Eight
  • Listing Agent: Ronald Edwards, City Chic Real Estate
