In Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured recently that were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers.

Mount Pleasant Rowhouse With Views of the Park

Mount Pleasant’s location close to the park is a big draw for many people; this three-bedroom rowhouse has windows that point directly into the tree-filled area. The fireplaces in the master bedroom and kitchen, the clawfoot bathtub, and the columns and dramatic staircase also add some stately flair to the home. After the listing entered the market in mid-April, a buyer picked it up within six days.

  • Price: $774,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5

Pink and Baby Blue in Takoma Park

Takoma Park has many adorable homes with porches, woodwork, and spacious rooms. This colonial revival that we featured in mid-April has all of those features, in addition to a pond in the backyard, a modern kitchen and a pastel color scheme. The charming home also took just 6 days to find a buyer.

  • Address: 7204 Spruce Avenue, Takoma Park, MD (map)
  • Price: $735,000

Victorian on the U Street Corridor

Last week, we guessed that this three-bedroom Victorian on the U Street Corridor would attract a bit of attention. We’re not sure how many bids it received, but we know the home got at least one: it went under contract just four days after landing on the market. With a private backyard, well-sized bedrooms, and a modest, malleable interior, this seemed like the kind of place that would appeal to lots of different people.

  • Address: 1203 W Street NW (map)
  • Price: $699,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1890
  • Days on Market: 4

DC’s One-Room House

The most-written about home featured on UrbanTurf in the last week is now under contract. The 371-square foot, one-floor house at 1349 C Street NE received a total of five offers, four of which were above the asking price of $248,500. When we initially wrote about the house, we pointed out a few benefits to it versus a studio: no neighbors stomping around overhead, no condo boards to negotiate with, and an outdoor space, with a square of green grass and a brick patio, all to yourself. Someone clearly agreed with us.

  • Address: 1349 C Street NE (map)
  • Price: $248,500
  • Bedrooms: 0
  • Bathrooms: 1
  • Year Built: 1911
  • Days on Market: 5
