Under Contract: The Second Time is the Charm: Figure 1

Snagging One of Georgetown’s Best Views

When we first wrote about this home a few years back, it didn’t end up finding a buyer. This time around, it caught someone’s attention in under a week and a half. One of the Prospect Street home’s most notable features is its impressive views of the Potomac River, the Key Bridge and Rosslyn, visible from the home’s interior and its roof deck. The unique “view room”, a two-story space with a wall of windows, is the epicenter of the home. The master suite occupies an entire floor, with three walls of windows, a media room, kitchenette, and a steam shower and jacuzzi tub in the en suite bathroom. A sound system is wired throughout the entire house, and custom shutters on the windows control light and maintain privacy.

  • Full Listing: 3618 Prospect Street NW (map)
  • Price: $3,495,000
  • Days on Market: Nine
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1900

48 Hours For a Rustic Bungalow in Arlington

This three-bedroom bungalow nestled in the Cherrydale neighborhood in Northern Virginia found a buyer within about a day of hitting the market. The interior retains a lot of early-20th century rustic features, including antique hardware and doors, built-in storage throughout the home, and the original hardwood floors. The master bedroom is secluded from the rest of the house on the upper floor. Blooming fruit trees and planters in the yard add to the cottage-like feel, and there is also the modern convenience of a two-car detached garage behind the house.

  • Price: $700,000
  • Days on Market: Two
