Listed for: $2.895M
Received: $2.61M
Size: 5-BR, 5.75 bath, 6,880 sq. ft.
Location: 1216 Lexington Way E, Broadmoor
The Skinny: This one's been on and off the market quite a few times between 2010 and 2012. After a hiatus, it hit the market again in October and hit pending just a couple weeks later. Quite the regal Broadmoor home and the stone terraces & walkways outside give it a true estate feel.

Listed for: $2.49M
Received: $2.4M
Size: 4-BR, 3.75 bath, 4,960 sq. ft.
Location: 1626 Federal Ave E, North Capitol Hill
The Skinny: Look, you're not gonna boast a turret like that and stay on the market very long. You're just not. This 1926-built, French Normandy-inspired home sitting on almost half an acre of private grounds listed in September and went pending twice in October before the sale at roughly asking price. Last time it sold, it went for "only" $810K in 1994.

Listed for: $1.845M
Received: $1.725M
Size: 5-BR, 3.5 bath, 5,270 sq. ft.
Location: 2212 34th Ave S, Mt. Baker
The Skinny: This 1929 French Chateau is another one in various states of listing and de-listing since 2010. Not a lot of bathrooms for a home this size but there are a lot of special features such as a wine cellar, dance studio, guest suite and super-sized laundry room.
