In Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured recently that were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers.
Rowhouse in Oft-Overlooked Truxton Circle
Last week, we highlighted this property in our Multiple Bids feature. We figured that the bright, spacious rowhouse in Truxton Circle would attract quite a few interested bidders. It appears that we were correct; the home is now under contract, and apparently received at least 11 offers. (One UrbanTurfer also lives across the street, and saw potential buyers gathered in front of the house most mornings). We’ll be interested to see where the final price lands.
- Address: 401 R Street NW (map)
- Price: $529,900
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Year Built: 1900
- Days on Market: 7
Bungalow in Glover Park With a Stone Porch
This Glover Park four-bedroom is tucked away on Tunlaw Road, but is just a few minutes from the activity on Wisconsin Avenue. The family-sized home in cozy Glover Park has plenty of comfortable rooms, and one side of the house has many windows, so the family room and bedroom that face that wall feel almost like sunrooms. The home, featured in Best New Listings a few weeks ago, found a buyer in just over a week.
- Address: 2401 Tunlaw Road NW (map)
- Price: $969,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Year Built: 1924
- Days on Market: 8
Capitol Hill Studio With A Smart Layout and a Porch
This Capitol Hill studio took a bit longer to find the right buyer than the houses above: it recently went under contract after about 22 days on the market. For those looking for a studio, this home managed to fit several different living areas into 475 square feet. It’s a bit of a squeeze, but there is room for an office nook, a comfortable living area, a full-sized kitchen, a Queen-sized bed.
- Address: 101 North Carolina Avenue SE, Unit G (map)
- Price: $269,000
- Bedrooms: Studio
- Bathrooms: One
- Square Footage: 475
- HOA Fees: $342/month
- Days on Market: 22
From Four Units To One Lofty Two-Bedroom in Ivy City
This unusual property took the longest to find the right buyer, with its time on the market clocking in at almost 3 months. The Ivy City property is a multi-family apartment building that was transformed into a single-family home. Four one-bedroom units were turned into a two-bedroom home with a lofty feel, and features including an industrial kitchen and a two-story ceiling in the main living area.
- Address: 1861 Kendall Street NE (map)
- Price: $499,900
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Year Built: 1950
- Days on Market: 2 months, 17 days
