Under Contract: The Weekend Homes Flew Off the Market in DC

by UrbanTurf Staff

January is supposed to be a slow time in the real estate market. A slew of recent sales in DC would have you thinking otherwise.


Under Contract: The Weekend Homes Flew Off the Market in DC: Figure 1

Woodridge Bungalow a Charming Mix of New and Old

UrbanTurf featured this quaint bungalow in Woodridge on Friday. It found a buyer by Sunday. The 1930’s home has a lot of character, with decorative ceiling tiles and a brick fireplace to balance out the updated kitchen and bathrooms. Although two bedrooms and a bathroom are on the ground floor, there is also an attic and a finished, carpeted basement with a separate entrance, full bed and bath. The good-sized backyard and two-car garage likely helped the owner get the asking price or perhaps a bit more.

  • Full Listing: 3714 26th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $449,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Days on Market: Four
  • Year Built: 1931
  • Listing Agent: Kymber Lovett-Menkiti, Keller Williams Capital Properties

A Two-Bedroom Penthouse in Woodley

This 1,300 square-foot unit on the top-floor of a converted row house a few blocks south of the Zoo sat on the market longer than the seller would’ve liked, but went under contract this weekend. The two-level floorplan is set up with the living room and kitchen area on one floor, and the bedrooms on the other. The listing comes with two-car tandem parking, as well as a private roof deck. Once the asking price was dropped by $20,000, the unit found a buyer.

  • Full Listing: 2616 Garfield Street NW, #3 (map)
  • Price: $929,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 1,300
  • Days on Market: Two months

Outdoor Space with a View on the Hill

This Capitol Hill three-bedroom boasts having one of the only roof decks in this section of the Hill with a view of the Capitol dome. The 1,800 square-foot Victorian also has a nicely shaded back patio and is just a quick walk from Lincoln Park. Inside, the home has an eat-in kitchen with space large enough for a dining room table, good light in the three-bedrooms and an in-law suite on the lower level. After ten days on the market, the three-bedroom found a buyer.

  • Full Listing: 16 10th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $950,000

A Small, Stylish Co-op on Adams Mill

UrbanTurf featured a one-bedroom co-op in this Adams Morgan building in late 2015 that sold in a few days, and this unit followed suit. The 740 square-foot one-bedroom, plus den listing is quite bright thanks to a number of windows on one side of the co-op. There is a small den just off the living room for extra space, as well as a washer/dryer. The unit went under contract nine days after hitting the market.

  • Price: $409,000
  • Bedrooms: One plus den
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Co-op Fees: $465/month
