Four Days for Over 3,000 Square Feet

This surprisingly spacious four-story Victorian rowhouse in Truxton Circle went under contract in just four days. Its visually compelling interior includes such details as wide-planked herringbone flooring in the dining room and kitchen, and multiple decorative fireplaces, adorned with colorful ceramic tiles, painted brick and metal grates. Two white-painted brick fireplace nooks face each other in the angular living room of the one-bedroom English basement. On the top floor of the house, a bonus room has a set of accordion doors that lead out to a roof deck.

Three Times the Charm for a Three-Bedroom in Brookland

Originally listed in August, this Brookland home went under contract twice but neither buyer moved forward. Still, the home’s curb appeal meant it wasn’t on the market very long the third time, finding a buyer in ten days. The detached colonial with front porch sits at the end of a deep front yard, surrounded by mature trees. The traditional interior has good bones and restored features like the ornately-carved banister and built-in china cabinet in the corner of the dining room. While the kitchen is outdated, its adjacency to a large walk-in pantry gives the new owner an opportunity to make the space their own.

  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1919
