Thanks to Long and Foster's Richard Oder, 3612 Reservoir Road N.W. sold for the list price of $1,260,000. The four-level, fourbedroom townhouse located in the Cloisters in Georgetown has cathedral ceilings, Palladian windows, rich wood floors, two fireplaces and a detached garage. The seller, Lucy Mallan, lived there for twenty years. The new owner prefers not to be identified.
Carmen and Dennis Perkins, Jr., have sold 2810 Adams Mill Road N.W. a charming, early 1900's Georgian Colonial perched atop a cliff overlooking the National Zoo and Rock Creek Park. The main and lower levels have glass-enclosed porches from which to enjoy the views year-round while the master bedroom suite and upper level family room boast verandahs with even more extensive vistas. The listing agent, Richard Oder, who specializes in unique downtown properties, says the location is “truly like living on top of the world – a one-of-a-kind spot.” The hot tub clinging to the cliff 's edge in the backyard is perfect for watching the sunset. Because of the property's proximity to the zoo, one can listen to lions roar and monkeys chatter. The home has four bedrooms, three full baths, two half baths and an attached garage. The new owners, Jon Cooper and his wife Julia Nord, had admired the property for years. As soon as it went on the market they offered $1,635,000, $40,000 more than the asking price. The property settled on May 19th with Long and Foster agent Linda Low representing the buyers.
